    Hello,

    I'm starting to obtain many IG accounts. I bought a few and made a few but the problem is that they all use my proxy. The proxy service I am using rn has their proxy's blocked when I tried creating acc's with them, and I was told not to use those kinds of proxies to maintain IG accounts.

    Does anyone know where to get IG proxy's? And is there a difference between having proxy's for maintaining vs creating IG acc's? Lastly, is it possible to switch IP's with my current IG accounts or would that look sketchy?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated as im new to this.

    Thanks!

    I'd get proxies from proxymillion. They are cheap and quality.
    You can't create accounts with their proxies. Don't know why. Probably because too many accounts were already created with the proxies.
    Yeah you can switch the ip when connecting to an account. Just don't do it too often.
    If you want to create accounts I recommend you do so using your phone's ip. Here is a short guide I wrote in an earlier thread regarding this process but with gmail instead of Instagram. It is pretty much the same thing for Instagram.
    However I think it would be best to mix this with the blue stacks account creation method which cryogenesis wrote about in a really popular thread you've probably already seen. Just open hotspot and connect your computer while using bluestack.

    1)What I do is I use a browser on my phone that doesn't accept cookies or anything
    2)I go to Gmail.com on that browser and I create an account
    3)Then I leave the app(the app doesn't store any data so when you leave it and go back on it sets back to default)
    4)Then I press airplane mode(your phone's IP is dynamic so when you turn on airplane mode for a few seconds then turn it back off your phone has a totally new IP address)
    5)Keep repeating this process

    *the browser I use is called "colorbrowser"

    My answer might seem a bit weird and confusing since I just copy and pasted something I wrote in the past. If you have any trouble just message me and I'll respond

    Hi Turhan,

    Thanks for your help! It is clear and I understand what you're getting at and I will start using that method to create accounts.

    But im a little confused - does IG focus solely on the IP's that create the acc rather than maintain it? So am I safe to use the proxy's that I currently have even though they're blocked from creating IG accounts?

    I cannot PM yet, if you PM me ill be sure to reply.

    Proxymillion is good for using, but if you are looking for proxy for accounts creation you should use only IPv4 proxy, not IPv6 (like proxy million)

    Use residential proxies for account creation

    Residential? So use my home IP and then another IP to maintain?

    So would it be okay to use proxies to maintain an IG even though the proxy doesnt work to create an account?

    Thanks for the help!

    For Instagram you need a service (provider) offering virgin proxies, meaning they have never been used for IG.

    Once you have these proxies, you can do anything you want with Instagram

    And you are offering such "virgin proxies" for creating IG accounts?

    But are proxies that arent usable for account creation still good for account maintenance?

    Thanks

    It does not matter the software you're using.

    I think the maximum acc number you can use per IP is 5. but it is better to use 1 acc per 1. This way you protect each acc and make it look independent from one another
