    I have heard that you can get banned from IG if you use an instagram account whilst instagress bot is running.
    Does this also apply to other management tools such as iconosquare, scheduled posts, whilst instagress is running?
    Or is it safe to run instagress with other management tools?
    Thanks in advanced :)

    Instagram are really fast to disable accounts nowadays. I've had passwords disabled where I've tried to login to the account from my VPS but forgot to close a logged-in window on my local machine. I've also had bots that get accounts flagged or banned within 5 minutes of testing.

    Don't know about instagress particularly, but I'd be VERY careful using any IG account that isn't a churn and burn.

    Actually, all those third party tools are not allowed by Instagram TOS.
    However, I have been using crowdfire many times accidentally while I had Instagress running and didnt experience any bans. However I got my password resetted a few times.

    (Sorry for pushing the thread I know its been a while)
