Is it safe to post photos to Instagram via mobile app whilst Instagress is also running?

    I have heard conflicting information regarding this issue. I'm just getting into automating FLC and am still within my free 72 hour Instagress trial. I am currently pausing Instagress every time I make a photo post to Instagram.

    I've been told that uploading photos from the mobile app whilst Instagress is also running in the background is a very bad idea and will set off alarm bells at Instagram HQ due to your phone's connection to Instagram and Instagress' connection being in very different places.

    Is this true?

    Do you guys run Instagress and post from the mobile app simultaneously? I can imagine this would be less of an issue with FL as it is hosted locally and you would probably be connecting to Instagram from via the same connection as your mobile.

    Cheers!

    I do not use Instagress but other bots and I d post/log in from my mobile while the bots are running at the same time. I have had no issues. I make sure I am using the same ip the accs are botting with.

    You should stop or pause instagress when you log on and post, then you should start it again right after, that way you are the safest! I have posted many times at the same time as followliker are running and i havent been banned but to be safe you should pause it while posting.

    Thank you all for your responses! I fired off a quick email to Instagress support in the end too to see what the 'official' word was also. Their response was as follows:

    For 100% safety I think it's probably a good idea to pause Instagress when posting from your device - I'm happy enough now though to upload photos via the app whilst it's running in the background.

    Cheers

    it is safe....
    as long as you have that account on your mobile phone before you even put it to instagress.

    The worst case scenario is you would get password resetted or pv
