To minimize the effectiveness of bot connections, Instagram promises an environment where fake users do not spam your page and comments with random requests, offers, and other messages. However, these limitations also restrict management bots' use by social media managers.
Action blocks are the most common preventive measure that limits or prevents certain functions for your account. By restricting actions such as liking, following, and commenting, you have far less influence over the platform and users that interact with specific content. Although action blocks are a light punishment, they grow into full account and even IP bans if the user tries to continue working with bots or attempts the same actions that got it into these restrictions.
Account bans are more serious occurrences, whose consequences range from mild to severe. If the banned account is one of the fake identities that was used to promote the main page, the crisis can be averted, especially if it did not attract too much attention to your IP address. Keep your disguises and identities believable, and better manage multiple accounts with proxy servers for scalability. If one of the accounts covered by a proxy gets caught, it will not have such a massive trace towards your main account. Keep the connections believable to avoid an account ban at all costs.
IP bans can be very serious, especially if Instagram decides to block your public identity. However, if the address is already blacklisted, the situation is still salvageable. If you are only starting the promotion of an Instagram account, beginning the entire process with a proxy connection will help you avoid all the consequences of an IP ban.
Making the right steps at the beginning of the process is essential because an IP ban can reach all Instagram accounts associated with the connection. Use proxy servers as early as possible, and begin covering your tracks in the early stages. It is the only way to stop the ban from spreading to all associated accounts, which would bring the whole operation down.
