    I have a question that I can't seem to find an answer to. For example: I have some private proxies and I want to create a few (hypothetical)Twitter accounts. I most likely will not always have the same proxy (or lets just assume I won't), so when I create a Twitter account with proxy #1 and login later on with proxy #2 and so on, won't Twitter find this suspicious? In other words, is the proxy only needed for account creation and not for normal login activities down the road? If so, will Twitter(FB or whomever) notice if I login with my normal home ( non proxy) IP address after account creation? Will I need proxies forever with those accounts. I hope this makes sense to someone.

    This is something that I have wondered about for months. I finally bought some proxies tonight and I figured that I should go ahead and ask. This may be a stupid question to some of you and I'm sorry but I really have no clue about any of this. Thanks in advance for any input.

    Edited to also ask: Is it safe to have two different browsers open (ex: Safari and Firefox) with one running a proxy and the other with my regular IP?

    here;s how it works best nowadays - the same IP/PROXY should always be used whenever you create Google, FB, Twitter.. account. they all utilize GEO tracking and try to switch twice or up your IP city/country and you get asked for verification.. Now if you have verified accounts already, then i think you can safely login from anywhere you want

    you have to use the same proxy (ip) after creation, for example if you change your location and erase all FB tracing cookies and history from your PC, when you log in to FB you will be prompted to verify your account, by recognizing some of the friends you have in list or by phone ... so you have to use the same IP / account ...

    simply put - 1 account per ip
    multiple account on 1 ip means when the ip is banned
    all accounts tied to that ip are banned as well

    Thank you very much to those that answered, I really appreciate it. I wish I would have asked this before I purchased my proxies. I went with the shared private proxies, I guess next month I had better go completely private.

    I have one more quick question regarding this same issue. You guys said that once you are verified (Twitter/FB) you should be able to sign in from whatever IP. What about websites that don't have account verification like Reddit, Digg or just any smaller website that you might want multiple account on for bookmarking purposes and etc? Do they care after account creation or are you safe with smaller sites?

    I recommend to use always the same 1 IP ( proxy ) / account even if they are smaller sites ...
