    So I've been using Instagress with 6 accounts and I'm planning on changing to Mass planner soon (after lurking on here). Since I like the extra tweaking features and it also works out cheaper!

    I'm not planning on running many IG accounts, just the 6, plus maybe a few more over time.

    I'm using Mac, so I'm think of using a VM to run MP. Would that be sufficient or would I need a VPS? Would I need to worry about any other software after purchasing Mass planner? I read a few posts about IPs etc, but it's a bit out of my depth.

    Sorry about the noob questions. I'm not as savvy, I'm just running these few IG accounts around my brand. Thanks in advance! And Trawling this forum has been very helpful btw! :)

    If you decide to go with a VPS, you could get a free one from Amazon. Check out a guide from MassPlanner on how to do it

    If you don't want to go with the free option, either of the cheap options from GreenCloudVPS wil be fine.

    RE Proxies: As far as I know, Instagress automatically deals with the proxies for each account. But because you will be switching to MP, now you need to do this. If these are high quality accounts, I'd suggest 1 proxy per account. Some people use 1 proxy for 3 accounts, but I prefer a little more security. HighProxies is the recommended proxy seller from MP (you have to get their instagram proxies).

    I cannot answer all your questions but just an input regarding VM. I use MP on Parallels and it is working fine for me. Just remember to download the installation file from within your Parallels browser (might be obvious for some VM users, but not doing it cost me some hours before figuring it out), and everything from then on should go smoothly.

    Thank you so much for your answer! The links are really helpful.

    Proxies sound like a good idea from my quick research. Just need to understand more about the benefits and decide how many I'll need. Costs are adding up already haha


    Yeah, I'm on the fence with VM or VPS atm.
    How many IG accounts are you running whilst using the VM?

    And yes, downloading into the right browser! Don't want to waste time. Thanks!

    I started the massplanner + amazon vps few days ago. Works very well. With the amazon one, they said you can run about 10-30 accounts before it starts to slow down a lot. At the moment, it's fine for me so I do recommend it.

    That's good to hear! Free is always great haha

    And for me, I only have 6 atm. Maybe a few more. So that should be good!

    Are you using proxies also atm ....If so, how many for each of your IGs?

    You'll be fine with 6. As for proxies it's recommended to use 1 proxy for 1-3 accounts unless it is a valuable account then you'll want to do 1 per account.

    Instagram is really restricted for proxy you're using. So take care and use deeply private proxies. Then your accounts will be safe.

    Thanks! I'll keep that in mind. My digging around is telling me the same thing. I'll send you a message regarding that!
