    Hey guys,

    I'm running followliker for a client that's well known but not big on instagram yet. My question is, should I get the account verified, and would this make instagram less likely to ban me?I'm running the recommended setting to stay safe but am always worried this might happen.

    Using it excess will result in ban, and anyways getting a verified insta is a big head ache.

    people tend to use pva accounts because at one point or another you're gonna get asked to enter a phone number, so you can basically just buy them with a phone number. It can happen that you won't get asked, but most likely you will.

    that's probably one of the reasons people suggest buying PVAs instead of non-PVAs.

    Right. Just to clarify, this is an actual startup that has quite a following on facebook and twitter as well as press, ect. I'm not going CPA or anything on it, just botting it for them. Suppose I'll just go ahead and get it verified.

    I think it helps, and I think instagram is cracking down non PVA accounts first.

    They are cracking down on spammy accounts. They don't care if your account isn't phone verified. You only get asked to phone verify when you do spammy shit. Most average Instagram users aren't phone verified unless they did it by their own choice.

    I think it will reduce the chance of getting banned if its verified
