    Hey guys! So I started using FL for my makeup Insta a few months ago & just reached 11k followers (that was w/ using FL sporadically) - to say the least I'm very happy w/ FL... Recently I decided to start more accounts for my business & am a bit confused about how to use proxies... I am not tech savvy at all so everything I've learned on using FL, etc has come from countless hours of research on here. these are my questions:
    I have used several diff phones to sign up for Insta accounts.. 1 got banned for repetitive content but did not affect the other 3 signed up to the same device. I have ran 5 accounts at a time on the FL but mainly just the 1. I bought 10 proxies... Do I need 1 proxy to each account or can I have 5 accounts safely to one proxy?
    My biggest question is how to enter the proxy on FL- it either doesn't work & says ERR or it says proxy is invalid- I've submitted support tickets but maybe someone here could give me a little direction?
    As you can probably tell- I still have much to learn. But just some basic direction would be much appreciated! Thanks

    Well first of all did you add your IP in the proxy address? Than just when you are dding the account add the login info and the proxy address and third i suggest you don't use more then 4 accounts on one proxy, just to be safe!

    I added the proxies but I'm not sure I'm adding it correctly.. I know this should be simple but I'm not tech savvy at all! Could you give an example of how it would look to add a proxy? Obviously just make up numbers- I'm just wondering what the format looks like

    Using follow liker on a vps or your pc?

    First i believe you're not authenticating the proxies, to do so, go to your settings in your proxy provider site, then somewhere it should say authenticate proxies, you can either do username: pass to protect or use ip authenticate (i use this) and just type in the ip of your computer, and ip of vps (if you use one) then save settings.
    Also format should look just like, proxy number: port number (remove the space between : and port)

    Authenticating them is the issue- I'm trying to figure out how- why is there not a step by step guide ha... I feel really dumb but this is all so foreign to me. Ok my last question (that's prob a lie) - I'm trying to upload pics into all my accounts- if I log into like 10 diff accounts on my phone (that were all made w/ different devices & hooked up to the bot w/ diff proxies) is it going to be a problem logging into them on my phone to post or? I don't like posting from the bot.

    IP: port:username: password

    vps means remote computers you can rent and have other people to maintain for you.
