I’m running IG automation for about 10 months now, doing the mother and child method since 1 month and never had experienced before PV. As we all recently got hit by this follow blocks waves, I was wondering if you too, got hit by this PV wave ? But my case is weird, let me explain :
I’m using 2 licenses of Jarvee, with approx. 70 accounts.
Around 20 accounts are on my laptop, with a 4g dongle and a distant 4g proxy (3-4 acc/proxy for 12 hours shift). Most of the accounts that were active got PV, and at the same time ! (Or a few minutes/hours delayed).
Around 50 acc are on a VPS, which I run from my laptop, using ipv4 proxies (1acc for 1 proxy). Everything was running pretty smoothly since yesterday evening. I just added 5 more acc with 1:1 ipv4 proxies, and started to create a feature I never used before : the comment tool, with spintax+++ (up to 2000 possibilities for each comment). Like, 4 acc sent 1 comment. That’s all. I didn’t change anything else, except this.
I’ve searched a bit everywhere about PV’s, as it’s my first ones. It’s really weird the PV wave got hit my VPS, AND my own laptop with Jarvee working with a 3G Dongle. Like, i don’t think IG can link the VPS and my laptop though the remote desktop application thing.
So, I used GETSMSCODE to go to Valid again. I see that i need to give them some rest after Phone Valid, because one acc tested got asked to get PV again. I will try to give them 1 day off.
Hey @denis1 - Before I switched to real numbers I used GETSMSCODE. I spent well over $500 on verification codes on those cheap chinese numbers. Everything was smooth in the beginning but eventually you start running into Daily PV’s. You have to think it’s pretty strange to get a chinese number when Instagram is banned in China. I think these numbers are flagged from the start.
After the first 20 or so PV’s you then run into the problem of getting disabled right after verifying.
If he’s using a 4g dongle its equivalent to a raw mobile. The standard is to add a new account once every 12 hours (as you’ll get a new IP in most cases). So if you’re adding 5 accounts on to the same proxy at the same time that’s going to look suspicious to IG.
I’d stay away from the comment tool, it’s nothing but a nightmare to manage. If you’re hell bent on going forward with that strategy, I’d have a look at some of the free spintax guides on here. Ideally you’re looking for 400+ billion combinations. Make sure you’re spintax has a good amount of variations before adding in Emojis.
On my laptop i use Jarvee 30 accounts licenses because it only has 2 Gb RAM. So, to be able to run 15-20 acc, I needed at least two 4G proxy :
I use AirProxy for the half of them, since 2 months, and it was going pretty good, was running smoothly 5 acc on 12 hours shift without problems.
And for the half others, I use a 4G dongle, which is plug on my laptop (from where it has the internet connexion).
To be honest i would love to have multiple dongles instead of a 4G proxy, but I don’t know how to do it.
That’s why I have a 16 GB RAM VPS, on top of that.
-The settings are very soft, with a nice warmup starting at 20 follow per day +25 everyday, follow 1 per hour (+1 every day), and maxxed out 190 follows per day, with 11 maximum per hour. Unfollow same. No (or almost) no Likes for all of them. DM yes : around 20 to 50 per day, but they barely send 30 each, and never got DM blocked !
Ladies and gents, please stop opening new threads on topics that have been discussed hundreds of times.
To address this new “wave” trending topic - there is never a “wave” as everyone uses unique set of settings / proxies / numbers / accounts and has very different level of experience.
