    I hear about it all the time, but what exactly does it do? Is it to prevent phone verification? Or just bans? Or both?

    And.. if I get phone verified multiple times, is it ok to use a different phone number? (since I am just using a random provider online?)

    Exactly that - to help prevent bans, make your account seem more organic and natural, etc etc..

    It's to prevent the triggering of IG's algorithm for finding and locating spam/bot accounts that just are created and immediately start spamming followers/unfollows/likes/all that.
