    I had 50 accounts, private proxies etc.
    All my accs got banned without doing nothing! I let them paused to rest, no any action on the last 6 days, yesterday I have checked them and everythng was fine.
    2 possible reasons:
    -blogger urls
    - photos pixel fired (even I modified the picture, it wasnt on full, only one pixel)
    All accs was 2 months old

    It was happened to me only? :(

    It means, even the pictures are not duplicates on all accs, they see it's a 99.98% perfect match.

    I still dont know what the fuck happened to me

    Did you have the same blogger URL in all the bios? People have been getting banned left and right for this.

    One of the following reasons:

    -All accounts are sharing your 99.98% duplicated pic. It should be: 25 accs sharing this + all accs are sharing random pics to hide it.
    -Your bot is giving away fingerprints
    -Your proxies are not dedicated and your sellers is sharing same proxies with someone else who is spamming instagram.
    -Instagram is following FB's algorithm for span protection and is getting harder

    in any case, you need to get new proxy and start new accs but this time change everything from settings to all.

    Hope you recover.

    I share only 3 pics, when I create the acc
    -Your bot is giving away fingerprints
    I use FL only
    -Your proxies are not dedicated and your sellers is sharing same proxies with someone else who is spamming instagram.
    buyproxies.org is my provider
    -Instagram is following FB's algorithm for span protection and is getting harder

    in any case, you need to get new proxy and start new accs but this time change everything from settings to all.
    yeah, but i dont know what I did wrong :(

    My guess is your bloggers were spammy and users reported you, which leads IG to you, and then they were able to find all of your accounts due to a leak, whether it's your bot, proxies, mac address, or whatever.

    BigTroll you got trolled by insta! It's bad that all your accounts got banned. :( Were you using the same blogger url on all the accounts?

    I'm talking with some ppl, they have still use them.
    Usually when is a problem with a link, they ask for removing. I doubt they banned all users with blogger on description

    I'm not talking about the Blogger accounts, I'm talking about Instagram. You do know that users can report you right?

    nah, they definitely don't do that, that would effect plenty of regular users too

    pics, hmmm i'm also not sure, unless you uploaded them lately, they check the pics when they're getting uploaded, not months after that, unless there's a reason to it

    what did you do before you paused the accs? you didn't count on it, so you didn't check, but it can be that your accs were banned right around the time you paused them, which was the direct result of your actions/settings you used in your bot - or maybe one or few of your accs got reported - and indirect results of different factors which lead them to link your accs

    after your accs got flagged for whatever reason (i assume you used the same settings on all of them), it's not really hard to link them (ips from the same c block, same acc age, images, same settings: same delays, running the accs in same time of the day, urls etc.) although none of these enough in itself, but the combination of these can easily link accs

    if you buy the accs, you cannot be sure which ips accessed the accs (for updating the profile/uploading profile pic etc), you also cannot be sure how many accs were created using the same ip, which and how many phone numbers were used to phone verify them (i can put any phone number into the profile and say it was verified using that number), this all may not be a problem until the accs getting flagged for something and they go under review

    mass botting is very hard now, if you don't control everything from the very beginning (i.e you use bought accs, that's right away a weak link in the chain), i don't see the point, because this can happen to your accs anytime, you're building them for months thinking about monetizing them later and bam, one sunny day, the're gone and it wasn't even (just) your fault

    also when did they ask you to remove a link before banning or where did you gather this info? i didn't do mass ig botting since 2 years now and even back then, they outright banned you, if you used a flagged/banned url or the same url for too many accs, no warnings

    i can't really pinpoint the reason as you can see and maybe my post doesn't help much, but i think those 2 possible reasons you listed in your OP, cannot be the cause, at least none of those alone

    i'd say it was an unfortunate conjunction of multiple different factors which led to your accs getting banned

    tl,dr this is how it possibly went down: one or more of your accs were flagged because of your actions (either it was the too brave settings in your bot; or some other thing(s) even unrelated to this, which annoyed one or more of your followers, so they reported you), one or more of your accs went under review, ig found all of your accs using their spam protection algorithm which took into account multiple factors and your accs were banned

    Their job is to crack those accounts and they did a good job. Sorry that happened. Now be careful next time if you go again.

    Hi mate,
    I have made the accs perfectly.
    I created them myself, private proxies, private phone numbers, etc.
    I have also used multiple proxy providers. I got banned on all of them, on the same time. Accs was 2 months old
    I really don't understand...my settings was c'mon, 400-500 follows per day, 60-90 delay. I guess tons of ppl use that. Only following, no exception.

    If I may ask, how did you make the accounts? What did you use?

    That is exactly the reason why you should avoid using bots and too many accounts on proxies

    Instagram in last 2 weeks has banned 10000s of accounts and will continue to do so.
