    Hi guys, I bought some private proxies to manage a few different pinterest accounts so they weren't all being logged in from the same ip address.

    After creating an account manually while under a private proxy the account gets suspended. I'm not too sure what is causing them to get banned from that though. The email address i used to sign up the accounts with was from yopmail which seems to be the only thing i can think of which would cause this but is it against ToS to use such email addresses for signing up?

    I do plan on using followliker to automate tasks once i have manually setup these accounts but i dont understand how or why any of these accounts are being banned before i even get to that.

    Hmm that could be. They were newly purchased private proxies from instant proxies. Are they known for giving out already abused ip's?

    Don't know never bought a proxy from someone else.

    But I would have to guess that the IP are reused as its not easy as it used to be to get new IP address for your company

    I had a new account blocked within its first couple of pins....the IP was blacklisted by a couple of sites, and the emsil adress used was an AOL US pva account so there is a high likelyhood that Pinterest blocks IP's that have ANY negative strikes against them....all the other IP's i have used were 100% clean and still working

    Interesting. I also realized one of the accounts I created a few days ago with a throwaway email and a different ip is still working so it must come down to strict ip filtering. I guess you gotta make sure that you are getting some quality private ips if you are even planning on creating any accounts with them, let alone using a bot.

    Are you using "incognito" or "private" browsing? Could be a cookie issue.

    Yea, I was signing up through incognito as I didn't want any cookie issues to potentially affect the process.

    IP is only one of MANY traceables used to identify users. For some reason people keep constantly going on about IP blacklisting etc, and while they may have records of abuse from specific IPs, it's more likely to be cookies & cache / flash LSO / browser fingerprint / basic computer info such as screen resolution, operating system version and so forth. Also your real IP can be leaked (yes even with your "private proxy") via webRTC unless you've made the necessary changes to your browser.

    There's a million other things sites can use to identify you, but depends on the sophistication of the fingerprinting system. OK you're not trying to evade the NSA, but people keep oversimplifying things and wondering why they get banned. You don't think Pinterest / Facebook / Twitter know about proxies and the typical methods of clearing cookies / cache, changing proxy and signing up in incognito?

    If you want, I'll dig up some useful links on BHW about fingerprinting. Have a read of this

    Also, check out a nifty little tool from Bloodninja (member here), called MultiLoginApp. It pretty much takes care of all the stuff I mentioned above and it comes with a free version.

    Thanks for that, I guess I underestimated the lengths social media companies go to for stopping someone from making a few different accounts. I don't know if I want to risk my actual account through all of this and potentially get it banned so maybe I won't even bother.

    Change your proxies maybe someone already have used and blacklisted these proxies and 1 tip start to doing pins when you created account but start to follow just when you get your first repin you will get it even if you dont have followers

    Do you get a chance to verify your email address before getting banned?

    I usually can but when I signed up while under that one proxy I hadn't even had the chance to confirm it.

    I'm quite certain it was an already abused ip I had but Themanhere opening my eyes to all of the other possible footprints out there makes me not want to pursue it any further. What if these proxies get banned in the future from reports of abuse and it traces back to my other accounts? Doesn't seem worth it for the little extra exposure I was hoping to get.

    I already mentioned, get MultiLoginApp, you can manage up to 10 profiles on the free version. It's very user friendly and takes care of everything. If your accounts still get disabled after creating them via MLA, it's almost definitely a proxy issue. If you use it exclusively to manage your "blackhat accounts", then I can't see how they'd link it to your actual account. Especially if you use MLA via a VPS as an added precaution.

    OP, I've had a few blacklisted proxies from instantproxies before. Just contact them and ask for a refresh of ips. They will only do it once a month unless it's a simple ip you want refreshed.

    My Pinterest setup, through which I create my own accounts is as follow:

    1. Always use Mozilla Firefox with custom history/privacy settings (always clear ALL website data when I close firefox).

    2. I use Pinterest proxies from SSL.

    3. Set the proxy on firefox + ID-Pass Proxy Connection

    4. I ALWAYS check my IP on a check Ip website

    5. CLOSE Firefox (remember custom settings)

    6. Open Firefox Again + ID-Pass Proxy Connection

    7. Check IP on any check Ip website

    8. Proxy IP confirmed

    9. OPEN PINTEREST

    It is time consuming, but none of my accounts have ever been banned due to connection or proxies.

    Is it something wrong with the Pinterest or is the same wave like on the Instagram, Twitter and Facebook?
