    Hi guys,

    I've been looking through some other threads but just wanted to make sure I got some things right:

    Today my personal IG account got banned. Only about 5 days old, but I think the mistake I made here was following/unfollowing over 100 people in one day (woops). I had been using Instagress on normal, comments and likes only. I'm certain it was the following/unfollowing that got me banned though. I've learnt from this, but that being said, I still have a few things to ask:

    1. Is it safe to use Instagress for likes/comments on a fresh account? Or should I do things manually for a few weeks? What are your suggestions?
    2. I manage an Instagram for a local business thats a few years old. Is it still safe to comment/like using instagress on this one (at normal speed)?
    3. Concerning the above, will Instagram ban me for accessing two accounts from the same mobile device? Do you think that will get me banned?

    If you have any other suggestions please feel free to let me know. I am building my personal IG to link back to my website (which acts as a CV/resume). Thanks in advance!

    1. Botting generally is safe on new accounts in my opinion. You just have to not use aggressive settings.
    2. I don't know what 'normal speed' is at Instagress, but commenting isn't really safe on Instagram.
    3. No, I log in on Instagram with 2 accounts myself, for the past few months and everything has been fine.

    I just got an API reset on my Instagress acount. Should I not use it for a few days?

    When I used instagress back in the day, i ignored that message and continued botting without any probs.

    Nowadays, I would either use slower settings or don't use it for 1-3 days but continue to do everything manually on a phone.

    Just my 2cents.
