    So I have been using Fl for 3 months now and got no passwords reset whatsoever ( only phone verifications) and now I got 10 pw resets over the night even tho they are all(profiles) on different devices. I only sometimes connect to them on my 3G (rarely) How is that possible?
    What should i do now? take a break on all for 3 days?

    Wondering why the accounts all got flagged. One account of me wasn't even spamming or automated. it was sitting there 'aging' (for about a year now) doing some small manual updates myself, though for the stats it was logged into my FL so i could see daily updates. anyone else had this problem with non automated (bot) accounts?

    So what now? Stop all Followliker accounts and wait for an FL Update (if they can detect the API-ubot?), or reduce settings lower?

    I run 100 accts sharing 30 proxies with about 300-600 follows, 300-600 likes, 100 comments daily 18 hours a day... Only 1 got the email verification... but paused all my projects in case this is a weekend long crack down.

    I've experienced Instagram sending out some pw resets quite often. haven't had any problems with pvas, but I really noticed some more pw resets. accounts are still running fine tho. it's actually kinda annoying having to change the password over and over again.

    as it seems, there's no real pattern, some users complain about getting more phone verifications, some complain about pw resets. As long as you think that your settings are safe, just reverify and continue

    yes, a simple PW update is nothing serious at this point. if you keep pushing the limits and get multiply Phone verifications/24h or week bans you should think twice what you are doing. at this moment just out of precaution I will give my PW reset accounts some well deserved time off, though it will not be a long winter sleep ;-)

    Are you using proxies? If not then than might be why.
    Not exactly sure why you got the password reset. Maybe one of your accounts followed or unfollowed to many people which triggered Instagrams algorithm?

    Wow yeah just double checked mine and it was only the accounts that were following, accounts unfollowing are fine even though they share the same proxy that's so weird

    Does anyone know how to log in to the accounts once you have reset the passwords? I can only log in on my Desktop PC, it doesn't allow me to on FL or my phone.

    Also getting a password reset request when logging in on my phone.
    Reset the password but it just asks me to do the same again creating a loop...

    Hopefully this will blow over after the weekend for us all.
