    Hey, everyone. I'm new to IM and I bought FL to boost my Instagram page (15k with Instagress + manual work). I'm very protective to this account as it's linked to my website, which is where nearly all of my revenue comes through. I've been reading a lot about proxies, but I'm having some trouble fully understanding why they're used with Instagram. I only plan to grow one account right now with FL. Do I need a proxy? Thanks!

    I think you dont need proxy if you use one account.

    No, run it on your IP. You have bigger chance of getting banned using proxy IMO.
    But dont run over 3 accs on same IP

    Are you planning to run FL from your own IP or you planning to use a VPS?

    Safer to use your own IP for 1 account. That way you don't risk using a proxy that's blacklisted.

    Agree with all the previous answers. Also make sure to start your FL settings slow and then after a couple days maybe make them a tad more aggressive. Good Luck!

    Always reading only 3 accs/IP. Well, it does depend on YOUR behavior if you can only use 3 accs/IP or more.

    Hey guys, I have a question that has to do with this somewhat. I'm planning to scale up from 3 accounts to 20+ and I'm wondering now proxy statement work. I plan on buying some PVA accounts and Private Proxies, but how do I connect the proxies to the accounts? What if I want to access the account to do some manual work on the account, hoe to I use the proxy then?

    - I personally use 1 or 2 accounts per proxy.
    - To do manual work use massplanner with proxy to edit account & followliker to upload
    - Maybe start with 10 accounts and work your way to 20.. Setting up account is a daunting task

    A quick question please, Is it okay to put one URL on 10 or more accounts?

    No not a very good idea. Instagram will ban the URL.

    As said earlier I would recommend running it on your home IP. I've done just that with my Twitter account for about 5 months now and have had 0 issues. Just make sure you fully understand the software before you start pushing the envelope. Watch tutorials, read newer threads, etc. Best of luck

    If you're buying private proxies you'll have the IP, Port, and any login needed. You'd just enter that info in your browsers Connection or Network settings to do any manual work. Careful to follow the safest practices with cookies if using multiple accounts from 1 device.

    Thanks buddy I appreciate your response. How many accounts at most is safe for one URL?
