I am suggesting here the right ways of interacting and how to avoid getting flagged on Instagram by spam filters – which is very important for anyone wanting to grow on Instagram and/or have a successful marketing strategy for their products.
How to avoid getting flagged on Instagram
1. Without good engagement signals Instagram will be more likely to flag your account as a spam account. Thus, you need to be wise about whom you follow. Avoid following thousands of random people. Instead, use good hashtags to find relevant users and engage with them.
2. Don’t use automation software not approved by Instagram, but if you must, be careful not to use the same settings and proxy source for all your accounts. Also, buying accounts with lots of fake followers or likes will do more harm than good. Instagram will realize what happened and will start limiting the reach of those accounts, making you lose time and money without seeing the results you looked for.

Instagram bans, blocks or various security checks like email/phone verify can arise because of one or a combination of the following factors:
- Adding a temporary / disposable email to the account;
- Flagged IP (especially when using shared/semidedicated proxies);
- Flagged IP subnet (a whole IP class being flagged because mass spam on that subnet);
- Phone verifying while logged on a proxy (IG detects most proxies);
- Proxy leaks (bot leaking the original computer/vps IP when multiple accounts are used);
- Flagged domain (same domain used on multiple spam accs);
- Blacklisted text in bio/posts/comments;
- Blacklisted media (interlinking of same, non-unicized, avatars/images/videos used for other spam/banned accounts);
- Unnatural action pattern on longterm (IG regular check of past account activity);
- Unbalanced rates of account stats/normal user behaviour (unknown factors);
- Setting up profiles of multiple accs using similar data in a short time span (same domain, too similar or identical text, identical feed posts, etc);
- Login / starting at the same time or in a short timespan multiple accs that share similarities (same domain, too similar or identical text, identical feed posts, etc);
- Login / starting at the same time or in a short timespan multiple accs that share the same IP classes. Example: Acc 1 on 126.96.36.199; Acc 2 on 188.8.131.52 etc..;
- Too many accs loging/running on one IP (various Instagram IP limits crossed);
- Too aggresive actions;
- Users reporting the account;
- Manual review.
