    Hi,

    So I have around 35 different Facebook accounts, a mixture of aged and non aged, each account runs adverts in between 40 - 140 different groups per day. I am using Ninja Blaster. There are 9 different adverts that run in these accounts, with only 2 accounts running the same advert each day. I don't include any URL or link in the posts, just text and an image.

    I have been doing this for around two years I have the occasional issue but not often. However recently I will get the following message across the majority of my accounts in the space of an hour or so, not always just the ones that are running the ads at that time.

    "Your account has been temporarily locked

    We’ve detected suspicious activity on your Facebook account and have temporarily locked it as a security precaution.
    It’s likely that your account was compromised as a result of entering your password on a website designed to look like Facebook. This type of attack is known as phishing. http://www.facebook.com/help/166863010078512 in the Help Center.
    Over the next few steps we’ll walk you through a security check to help secure your account, and let you log back in."

    Sometimes it will ask for a phone code, each account is phone verified, or sometimes it will ask me to identify friends. However it will cause all my adverts to fail for the day.

    I also have around 10 other Facebook accounts that are used for another business that do essentially the same thing just for a different businesses however these never flag. These accounts all have their own individual adverts.

    I am desperate for a solution to this, or even an indication as to why these accounts flag.

    I am running different campaigns via MassPlanner and today i got the same problem on all accounts. I recovered most of them. Highly recommend lowering the limits these days.

    Different messages on all accounts. Some asked for friends recognize, some to provide birthday and others just to change password.

    if you dont want your accounts to get banned then you need to pay for adverts..EVENTUALLY you will get a permanent ban...
    lower your limits as much as you want. facebook will eventually catch on completely on all these mass posting software and bann all accounts using them...dont you guys think that all the social media and serach engine are tracking whats going on the forums here?
    people seem to forget that all the information here is public and onces more people start doing it its only a matter of time before everyone wakes up to messages like this...
