    I know this is a very stupid question, but im new to staying anonymous. I am using this instagram python script (instabot.py) that follows, unfollows, etc. But it also lets you type in a custom proxy, so can i have around 100 instabot.py windows open at the same time, running on different accounts and different proxies? Without Instagram tracking down my ip address and finding out that all of those accounts are mine? And in this post: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/method-create-unlimited-instagram-accounts-through-your-desktop.828334/ it says that you have to change your ip address. How do i do that, and what is a dynamic ip address?

    BEST PROXIES:
    You can get dynamic ips from your internet provider - and in many cases it's a good option as they aren't seen as proxy so those ips are "natural".

    A IP is on internet like your ID Card into your real life. If you have a large number of instagram accounts and/or IG will see you are doing something tricky they will ban all your accounts because the accounts are from the same IP.
    You can buy proxies from proxy providers(check the marketplace for it), I don't recommend to use free proxies because these are overused.
    To manage the proxies you can use either a program to do it or manually in google chrome, mozila firefox, etc

    Most ISPs give out dynamic ips which are tied to your mac address. There is usually a portal you can sign into on your isp site to whitelist your device mac address for use. To get a new ip address each time, you would have to whitelist a new mac address with the ISP. This is pretty tedious, and especially so if you are only allocated 1 dynamic address from your ISP. That being said, these IPs are called residential IPs and are very safe to use and will create strong accounts.

    How do you use these accounts after? Well... if you don't have a way to get cheap residential ips / mobile ips in order to look as natural as possible. The next best solution is probably paid private proxies. You buy these and that's what you put in the proxy field for your bot.

    I didn't quite get what ya'll are trying to tell me, since my english isnt that good. But from what i understand, this is what im supposed to to:
    1. Get bluestacks
    2. get bluestacks tweaker
    3. Make 1-5 instagram accounts
    4. Change your ip by contacting my internet provider ? Is there a way to do this without having to contact your internet provider?
    5. open bluestacks tweaker and change the the Device ID,GUID,Phone Model and Google Advertising ID
    6. Repeat

    Then for the instabot.py script
    1. Get a proxy (is it possible to get a free proxy? Because i dont have any money. Should i use a free proxy or not use a proxy at all?)
    2. Edit the script and type in the proxy you have
    3. Then use a different proxy for every account

    Again im not so good at english, so please pretend like your talking to someone that... well, isnt so good at english

    Edit: Btw, can i change a dynamic ip whenever i want? Or do i have to contact my ip provider each time i want to change it?

    Edit2: i think i have an dynamic ip, it says so in this website atleast http://whatismyipaddress.com/ (if you click on "show me more about my ip" under the map) Now, how can i change it?

    To understand what an IP address is, goes a little further than just the address. An IP address is analogously similar to your home address. This is also true of any IP address such as those used by websites. Because there are four octets of numbers in an IP address, it would be difficult to remember the address. Enter DNS. DNS is what translates a web site name like www.blackhatworld.com into an IPV4 address like 104.25.213.49 and an IPV6 address of 2400:cb00:2048:1::6819:d631. As you can see, IPV6 uses hexadecimal and and has six quartets that provide for a greater number of addresses, and which relieves the pressure on the diminishing number of IPV4 addresses.

    Your ISP assigns the IPV4 and IPV6 addresses to the service that you are using. Some are dynamic, meaning the address changes each time you boot the router/gateway. Other IP addresses are static, meaning that they do not change - even if you reboot the router. My IP address is supposed to be dynamic via Google Fiber, but is actually static.

    When you access a website, the website records (logs) the IP address used to connect to it. If the site has posting or access rules, and most do, then if you access the site too many times in a short period, the site may very well limit your access to the site with that IP address. Google permanently and temporarily blocks IP address if the same address access Google too frequently, and even faster if you use search modifiers such as "insite:".

    Enter in proxies. When you access a site using a truly anonymous proxy, the site records the IP address of the proxy rather than your assigned IP address. If the Proxy becomes banned, you can use another proxy to get around the ban. You also need to remember that often when a proxy is banned, especially for post spam, it is most likely to report the IP to a spam warehouse and becomes banned across multiple sites, if it is your root IP - too damned bad. Also, due to varying circumstances, such as server load, a proxy may become transparent, or may release your IP temporarily. Many sites look for there bans being defeated.

    If you are into security, a VPN might help, but as a function of the operating system of the VPN, it still logs your IP address. How long those logs are kept is another issue. however, even if using a VPN you should connect through another proxy, or chain several proxies if you are doing something shady. Depending on use, you are probably best off with numerous private proxies from a reliable provider. For posting, it is a mix because you do not want your private proxy banned, and so you may be better off with a public proxy.

    when you go online you leave a footprint behind, an ip address
    if you run lots of accounts you will need more than 1 ip address
    this is because more than 1/2 accounts running on 1 ip address will get banned,
    so proxies are used for people who run lots of accounts.
