    basically i am wondering whether or not all of my IG account would get banned if one of them got banned because of FL? Im just wondering if its a chain reaction or not as i have had this happend to me in other fields while running bots.

    And if i run a proxy on FL will IG still ban me for it or what? Im still very new to this whole IG thing and how it works and just trying to figure everything out one step at a time.

    Like how would a proxy help me with FL as no matter what Im still logged on to my IG account whether or not im using a proxy or home IP.

    Instagram's algorithms first look at the device used to connect, then the IP, and so on. If they detect that "accounts" are doing something that Instagram does not like, they could take a closer look at all accounts that login from that IP.

    This is why most will use only one proxy IP per account. Others 1-3 accounts per IP. Again, it all depends on how you use the bot. Some here are using dozens and sometimes 50+ accounts controlled from just one IP and have no problem.

    Thank you for that, just purchased a couple of proxies and going to set them up now and we'll see how that goes and hopefully ill be able to learn something from this.

    Now to add on top of that, I just got the proxy working, however do I have to be on that proxy when posting images or just when running the bot?

    Try to keep IG at 1-2 accs per proxy with FL. IG is getting harder to scale as of late.... really becoming strict.

    Yah right now im just testing the waters and trying different settings before i scale up the operation. I see so much potential in this and if everything goes smoothly i should be able to make a living off this.
