    Hello guys!

    I'm pretty new, just got here a few days ago. Tried to read a lot of the content available in this forum, but I feel I'm still confused.
    I already own my fitness themed blog with IG and FB fanpage (that's how I got here, looking for SEO tips), and right now working on them manually (although they are still really small, started a month ago).
    Seeing others results here with IG, I'd like to make 2-3 new accounts in different niches. I have the time to work with all of this and make quality content, so that's not a problem.

    So a couple of questions:

    1, I want to buy FL to automate the system, so only have to work with the content. Do I need to buy proxies too? If yes, is that a problem that I live in Central-Europe?
    2, Is it a good idea to manage all uploads from the same device (iPhone), or is it better to use 1 device for 1 account? I can use my family's phones/tablets too.
    3, If I use 1 phone with 1 account, can I upload from the same wi-fi (in my apartment), or is IG banning for this?
    4, Is it possible to like/comment/follow on my IG from my phone while FL is running? Or should I just stop the bot when opening the Instagram app?
    5, Did I miss something? :confused:

    Thank you guys in advance for your time and help, means a lot!

    P.S.: Read in a few topics that it's better to have multiple accounts in the same niche, because it's easier to promote them through each other. Anyone here to prove/disprove this?

    If you only have one account, no need proxy. Even you use your phone, your computer, tablet to open the same account, it still okay. I hope it answers your question.. :)

    Yep promoting yourself with many accounts can be useful especially when they'll get bigger and you'll be able to monetize all of them.

    Thank you for your answers! What do you mean by "use the same proxy that you use in the bot for the acc"? Can i join to a proxy with my phone and upload from that network? Or is it possible to upload images from the FL itself?

    Thank you! Yes I know this, but planning on managing a total of 3-4 accs. In that case it is safer with different proxies right? Or not that big deal?

    Thanks! So it shouldn't be a problem with 3-4 accs from the same network (home wifi)?

    As long as you're not running FL 24/7, you'll most likely be fine. Just take it easy with new accounts, as they're much more likely to be banned for aggressive bot use.

    Good question, I travel a lot between home and uni. Instagramming on public wifis while FL is botting from proxies is safe?

    Also, what if one account is taken care of by my gf from her phone (her wifi), but FL is running from my laptop at my home (my wifi)? By taken care of I mean she is uploading the content.

    Thanks! Will follow your advice. :)
    Also, I won't start botting in new accs for 1-2 weeks while filling them with pics.

    So to manage 3-4 accs I will have to buy FL, proxies for each acc, and different phones to manage the uploading, all of them set up with the proxies?
    Isn't it possible to upload from FL itself or something like that?

    Running 4 accs on one proxy is fine as long as all the accs aren't being heavily aggressive with the actions and they aren't running 24/7 without any breaks. If they are and one gets ban, all accs running on the same ip will most likely get ban.

    Each time you login with a different ip then the one you use to bot with, your password will be reset by IG. It's highly recommended to use same proxy from the time you create them to the time you run them using the bot. If you want check your acc using your mobile/pc, use the same proxy to log in to avoid IG resetting your password.

    I do not understand this question. Upload meaning uploading photos using FL? FL has to capability to upload photos with caption. If you want to upload photos using a mobile id, same rules apply as mentioned above. Use the same proxy the acc is ran using FL to upload photos.

    My little brother who's starting IG uses home and college IP without any problems. He has 3 accounts and uses his own phone to manage all his accounts when it comes to uploading pics. No problems so far.

    Thank you. So if I don't buy any proxies it is okay to login with my phone from my home network, where FL is running right? And if I do buy some, then I should always login from the same proxy (from my phone) as the account is running on.

    Is he using FL or does everything manually? If he is using it, from which network (home or college)?
