    Hi,

    I've a problem every account I create and start using FL I keep getting banned... Today I was banned again.
    My setup on FL is: follow 10-15 per day and comment 100-150
    I had 40 images , 59 followers and 32 following.
    I got banned when I start following people I usually only comment...
    Anyone experience the same problem? What I may be doing wrong?

    Thanks

    I have waaaaay more aggressive settings than you and no bans.

    What are you commenting? I have gotten flagged a few times for comments but never for follows.

    My comments are usually generic and positive, things like:

    "Wow, pretty awesome!"

    and never

    "HEY NICE THING FOLLOW MY STUPID ACCOUNT OVER HERE LOL!"

    Instagram's new policy about new "spammers" is incredibly aggressive. The only thing you can do (almost?)limitless is to like other people pics, always randomizing the delays between the likes. Comment limit (using a third party: bots, iconosquare, other websites, etc.) has been set to 60 per hour for old accounts, so I'd say that brand new accounts shouldn't even comment to prevent the ban, even if it's just MY opinion. Their new policy is so nazi that everytime I have to check my accounts status, I always sh*t my pants when I put the wrong password, thinking they kicked my account out of the game.

    Also, I've experienced that a brand new account will be banned even if the user follow manually more than 50 people in one hour. Same with 30 comments.

    Hope this will help you

    dont put url in your profile on first month. shorter url is ban, never user shorter url, if your url is flaged wait 2 months to use it again.
    dont comment on first month start just like and follow, first week just upload pictures, 3 for day.
    Comment is easy to get ban better pass out

    You're talking about TEMPORARY IMPOSSIBILITY to comment, the OP was referred to permanent ban: his accounts have been deleted for ever.

    Your IP/proxy is flagged, change it and you will be fine.
    (change proxy open a new acc on the proxy)

    I don't know if it's something wrong with my accounts because I can follow 1-2k a day and unfollow 1-2k a day from day 1 without any problems. I have never had a ban with any account (I got 40 accounts). No proxies used either...

    You answered this one for yourself. You only got banned when you started following people. When you were just commenting on others, there were no issues. So maybe you should change your IP address and create a new account and next time focus just on likes and comments and let the followers come to you in that way. Some people will follow you out of a sense of gratitude after you make a kind comment. By the way, these generic comments might be working for others but maybe you could take time to invest a little more effort into the comments to make them worthwhile to those you are commenting on. Do that for at least the first month and there after once you have established site credibility, you can ease back and go with some of those shorter, 'nice post' type comments. Just some suggestions, hopefully next time around you will be luckier.

    @op

    Are you using the same proxy(ip) to create these accs over and over again? If so, that maybe the cause of your accs getting ban. The ip has been blacklisted.

    Are you just following and unfollowing?

    Yes but when I create a new account I don't have any problem accessing the new account. I use my phone to add photos and I don't know how to use proxies on phone or even if it's possible to use it

    It's possible. Make sure you are connected to your home wifi router or the one you have connected with your proxy provider.
    On your phone, navigate to your wifi settings and find something that say 'http proxy'. Input the proxy and port number.
    Save and exit out.
    To verify that you are connected to your proxy, open your native browser app and type 'whatismyip.com'. If you see the proxy ip listed, you are golden.
    IG app will be using this ip when you log in from your phone now. Be sure to clear the proxy when you are done or switching between accs from phone.
