    I have some IG accounts with 2k followers each one and I would like to link them in the bio to my ecommerce. All whitehat, niche related to the accounts. My accounts are running FL with mass follow/unfollow and like. Is it dangerous to use the link bio? Some people say IG bans come easy with link in the bio...

    That's right, it comes easy. But only if you add the links too fast after account creation.
    And they shouldn't be too spammy or leading straight to a content locker/phising website.
    I would say you're safe to go.

    By using bots you're risking by getting banned anyway, and if you linked them all by one domain, there's a BIG chance that if you got one acc banned you will get banned on all of them as well

    First off, don't place link in the bio but in the website section of your profile.
    Also, try not to use the same link on both your accounts, instead try redirecting with e.g. Bitly.

    Btw as long as your folliw unfollow settings are reasonable and you aren't spamming, you have nothing to worry about.

    Which are "reasonable" follow/unfollow and like settings for you?

    Thanks for all the responses! :D

    Yes it can be dangerous. Using cpa links (links that require people to pay for an action) is a violation of their community guidelines (CPA offers, connect pal, etc)

    I've been seeing the bit.ly shortening in accounts from big brands, anyone knows why is it best not to use the regular link?
