    I have seen many posts here asking similar questions again and again about how to create accounts & set up MP so you wouldn’t get banned by social networks, especially Instagram.

    I have been using MP for a long time, and have managed more than 100 accounts (excluding disposable accounts because I was using them for fun & testing limitations). Most of the accounts belong to my clients. I do own 15-20 niche accounts personally.

    For the record, I have never got an authority account/clients’ accounts banned by using Mass Planner. I did get temporary blocks/bans when I was playing around the settings for test/ disposable/spam accounts.

    Alright! Let’s get to the point.

    Account creation & footprints

    Instagram: I created all my accounts through browsers, and transferred them to MP after 2-3 days cooldown time. I have probably created more than 50 accounts this way, rarely got a PV.

    Twitter: You WILL get a PV sooner or later whether you are spamming the account or not. Sometimes, you may get it just a few days later after you created the account without any botting or changes to the account.

    Aged Accounts Are Safer Than New Accounts

    Instagram: There is NO DIFFERENCE between aged & new accounts if you want to use them for spam; You did one thing wrong, bang! You see the banhammer!

    For legit accounts, the only difference I have experienced for new & aged accounts is that I could follow more than 1000 users per day for aged accounts without getting temporary blocks.

    Twitter: Definitely. I think Twitter made some moves combat following/unfollowing method earlier this year or last year. I could follow around 800 to 1000 users for a new account back then, but I’ve got a lot of PVs for new accounts recently. It’s really annoying especially if you got them for your clients’ accounts when they forgot to link their phones to their accounts.

    Pinterest: One week old is safe on Pinterest, but you can’t start following without any boards & pins. You may trigger the PW change alert if you start following with an empty profile.

    Instagram Proxies Are Better Than Regular Private Proxies:

    I have mixed results on this one. I have got bad Instagram proxies and bad regular private proxies as well. It’s just a matter of luck. No perfect type of proxies for Instagram as well as no perfect human beings in the world. lol

    Link-in-bio Gets You a Ban

    Instagram: Yep. This is the main reason you get banned/PV/EV by Instagram if you want to add CPA/Affiliate related links in the bio. Also, I have found that if you don’t put your link in the bio, you could do more actions (follow/unfollow/likes etc) without triggering the Instagram security alert. It is hard to get banned when you don’t have a link in the bio except you bought accounts from account dealers. You never know how they created the accounts. :p

    Following/unfollowing Gets a Ban


    Instagram: I don’t think it is the case except you suddenly follow/unfollow a ridiculous number of users a day (more than 2000+). Temporary blocks are normal when you jump from 0 to 1000 followings a day.

    PV No More Than 3 Accounts via One Phone#

    Instagram: I think 5 is the golden#. Why? Simple! Instagram allows you to log in to 5 accounts at once, so I assume it's acceptable with 5 accounts linked to one phone#.

    However, I have my personal phone# linked to around 15 accounts. So far so good.

    There is one exception. If you are planning to use IG for spam, then don’t use your personal phone# for it. Also, do not verify more than 2 accounts per phone#.

    Twitter: PVed around 10 already using my phone#.

    Same Phone# For Multiple PVs For One Account

    Instagram: Not necessary. I accidentally PVed one client’s account using my phone (He did PV once already using his phone). I was freaked out at that time, but nothing happened. No banhammer!

    I’ll try to add more useful information to this thread later. Ask me any questions regarding account creation & MP settings on Instagram, Twitter & Pinterest. I am quite tied up recently, but I will try to answer them as soon as possible.

    Happy social-botting! ;)

    Good thread, morblogger!
    Regarding the account creation: Do you use proxies, delete cookies, etc. before creating a new one?
    Just wondering because you didn't mention it.

    Don't put link in the bio first. After you get 5000 followers, then put your link in the bio would be much safer. :)

    No problem. :)

    Nope, I don't use proxies. I use my residential IP to register new accounts. I do clear cookies, broswer history etc. Don't create two accounts in a day, one account max per day.

    OP do you have more info about Pinterest? Does the follow/unfollow method work well on that platform? Or is it better to pin/like posts?

    Thanks for the awesome post :) I'm planning to buy Massplanner to grow my accounts. Since you are(were) managing accounts for your clients may I ask, What would happen if a client's account gets banned? How would you handle that? :)

    I'm mainly focusing on Instagram, but I also want to grow my Pinterest and Twitter accounts. What Massplanner edition would be the best? :)

    Sorry for asking too many questions. New to this :)

    I have got temporary blocks, but never got a ban for my clients' accounts. I did get a few ban for my disposal accounts when I was testing the limit. You just need to follow the instruction to get your account back.

    I bought the full version. :)

    Thanks for the reply my friend :)

    So as long as I don't use massplanner aggressively I don't have to worry about getting my clients' accounts banned? And even if one gets banned I can get the account back? :)

    Nice post, but as far as footprints are concerned- I'd never link 15 accounts to a single ip / phone number / email address... Asking for trouble.

    Yes and no. You can't get your client's account back, only your client can. Instagram demands a photo of the account owner holding a code.

    @morbloger Thank you for the post and for the help, it gives me courage to go ahead.
    I love MassPlanner but i was always afraid of do new accounts.
    I grow 1 at my work and 1 at home.
    some questions:

    1- About Instagram proxies:
    Dedicated or semi dedicated can handle?
    1 proxy per acc? Or 3 acc per proxy?

    2- "Link-in-bio Gets You a Ban"
    Even if its a client? Like his oficial website? no afiliated stuff.

    3- What u mean by Spamm in instagram? Direct mensage or comment on photo?
