    Right after I create an account, I almost always get phone verification immediately. Once I verify, either the account gets banned instantly, or all of my accounts on that proxy (including the one I just made) get this message when commenting:

    I don't understand what is triggering it. On accounts that have never posted a comment this is popping up. Also, it seems to last forever. I've had that message for way over 48 hours on some accounts. Literally every account I own has this message right now. It's strange though because I got a verification message while one of my accounts had this and it immediately unblocked me. Can I force it to verify me?

    If I comment again while I have this message, does it reset the amount of time I'm blocked for? How long am I even blocked for? And why are accounts that have never commented anything getting this message and causing every other account on the proxy to get this message? Thank you!

    Are your accounts tied by same number or same device same proxy. Once one gets a ban the rest tied to it will also get the bans.

    Same proxy yea. Ok so that makes sense but why am I getting this comment block on an account that is like 2 minutes old and has never commented? That's the reason why the rest are getting banned.

    Yea it's weird they allow the new account creation and then comment block it. If they didn't like the IP I would expect you couldn't create the account. I guess you will have to test out a new proxy. How many accounts you got? They only allow five I think per proxy.

    I had 4 on a proxy perfectly fine. Then I made a 5th one on literally all the proxies and blocked and banned. So I'm guessing 4 is the limit for me. But strangely I had a proxy with 3 accounts on it and the 4th one caused them all to be comment blocked. I am so confused you have no idea.

    The strange thing is I have 4 accounts that are 2 years old who have all been blocked from commenting for like 5 days. Not sure how to fix it but I suspect it's because they were never on a proxy and I put them on one. I'm sure if I took them off then it would be fine but I don't really know haha.

    Do do you have any idea about how long this block lasts and if commenting while this block is in progress will reset the time I'm blocked for? Thanks :)

    Not too sure. Instagram and Facebook are becoming insane. They are really bustin our balls. I think your finding your limits for account creation. You will also have to sort out commenting limits and things. I had some notes on these but can't find them at the moment.

    Make sure you are not using over-used proxies... if they have been used once, it will bring only trouble.

    Another thing to note is do NOT login from multiple IPs to one account. If you do so, it will block you. It happened to me twice I logged at college and I got blocked twice until I figured it out, now I only use 1 IP to login on my accounts.

    What do you mean by overused proxies? Like these are all my own private proxies. Are you saying if an account got banned on it don't use the proxy? And yea I always log in on the same proxy.

    Yes. If you got banned once on a proxy, or had problems with a proxy before, it's the best way to replace that proxy with another one imo. It will cause you problems otherwise.

    But wouldn't that mess up the accounts on that proxy? Like moving them to another proxy would probably get them all banned. These accounts are just blocked from commenting.

    Well, since they are blocked from commenting, I'm not sure how much would it help moving. But if you were to start fresh again, get new fresh IPs from your proxy provider and don't make too many accounts, stay with the limits and you will be fine.

    And another thing, use longer delays on commenting, and use a bunch of comments, so they don't repeat, IG has a security that is able to identify if comments repeat and therefore it assumes it's a bot.

    I still have like 8 IPS that are untouched so that should be fine for that. With the comment block, will it still be lifted eventually if I'm still liking and following (20 a day) or do I need to completely halt all activity on these accounts for a couple of days?

    My delays on my comments were 250 seconds - 280 seconds so can't go much higher than that.

    I'm not sure whether commenting is different than other functions, but when I were follow blocked, I unfollowed people meanwhile and I got my follow function back. But then again, I can't say if this is the case with comments.

    I recommend you to spend one day and write some really quality comments that people would like and not look like spam, because if you get reported on your comments IG takes action pretty quick. Another thing that might cause a problem here is that you use all of your accounts on one proxy for commenting, so if you have 4 accounts per proxy all commenting it sounds kinda suspicious if you ask me. You might have to lower the accounts per proxy, or use some of them for other tasks I guess.

    Did you find that if you attempted to follow someone it would increase/reset the time required to wait before you were unblocked?

    And yes this could look suspicious but it don't think it will cause problems. I had those 4 aged accounts commenting 24/7 for months on end and only commentin and never got blocked or banned. That was using iMacros though. The second I tried using them with FollowLiked I immediately get blocked for days on end...

    My accounts only serve a purpose for commenting so I think following and liking would be pointless other than to establish my account in the first week.

    I'm not sure, but I'd say it resets the limit from start. For example, if you were blocked 24h from following and you keep running FL, it triggers the security algorithms again it will block you for 24h again (basically the 24h hours reset, it doesn't add up). I can't confirm this, but I believe it's this way.

    Okay that's what I thought. I think I'm just gonna start from scratch and swap all my proxies and delete all those accounts. I need a clean slate as I've clearly fucked up a ton.

    Also, if I continue liking and following on all of those accounts, it won't reset the 24 hour block for commenting right? It's only if I comment?

    EDIT: Okay I moved the remaining 3 of my aged accounts over to another proxy and they are now able to comment, but I don't care I'm still doing my week of liking and following to ease everything into the new proxies and all that. The remaining 20 accounts will be deleted and I've contacted my proxy provider to switch all the proxies that were used to new ones. Hopefully this is the last problem I have with FL..

    I think they are banning accounts by content of a message not how much you are sending it.

    make sure the proxies are dedicated and not shared, private proxies can be shared too, although it shows in their price too, they're cheaper

    on another note, if you switch ips/proxies especially from multiple countries, i'd expect a pw verification request, not a comment block, it's pretty weird

    Don't think so. I got comment block on accounts that never even commented.

    Pretty sure they're dedicated but nowhere on the site does it say shared or dedicated. Hmm..

    It's pretty strange. So I live in Canada right. I made accounts 2 years ago in Canada. I then put them on a proxy in the US and they were fine until I made a 5th account on that proxy, comment blocking them all except that 5th account. So anyways I just moved 3 of the 4 accounts that are 2 years old to Romania and now I'm finally unblocked from commenting on them. Not to mention I received no form of phone verification or password verification. The other one I moved somewhere else in Europe as well and no verification required but I was unblocked from everything. wtf Instagram.
