    It seems like I get banned every time I use FL now. About a week ago fired up FL after having a 5 day break. Instantly I got banned. Tried a new account and after 100 follows my account got banned. Just paid to upgrade to 5 account license on FL too. What a joke.

    Is there any point in going on with FL or should I just do it manually?

    You're clearly doing something wrong.

    Elaborating on your actions would be really helpful.

    Maybe your settings is too agressive or you do not use proxies.
    I run my accounts for several weeks just fine, so you have to be doing something wrong.

    Try to verify with phone numbers. I can help you with that.

    "Is there any point in...." No. No there is not. If you have to ask this question, you already have failed. You can try again and might be successful, but you must first change your attitude and take a different route. Instagram isn't really hard. It's just a lengthy journey. With proper management and safety precautions, you shouldn't get banned and easily get 50,000 followers from scratch within a year. You can get 100 accounts like this if you'd wish, but for that you'd have to spend some good coin. However your return would be enourmous after that year. Keep in mind however that 50K followers for most niches isn't really worth much.

    no, I only had 3 accounts. Also, I dont know how to use proxies on my phone.

    i had an account that was about 4-5 months old with 13k followers. Been running FL on it for all this time. I stop for 5 days and when i start up again with the same settings I got banned. Then I made a new account and ran fl after 3 days. It followed about 100 people and got banned.

    200 follows a day and 100 likes, wouldnt call that agressive.
