How to use and where to get the Instagram proxy?
Automation of activities is one of the most effective ways to increase engagement, reach and number of subscribers. However, since automation is not authorized on Instagram, specific security measures should be considered, in particular by the owners of several Instagram accounts. Before scheduling Instagram posts for future publication or creating massive tasks for likes, commentary and subscriptions by Combin or other services, familiarize yourself with the full list of recommendations to automate Instagram activities without blocking the account.
Why is the proxy necessary for the automation of Instagram ?
Social media managers, digital marketing agencies and even regular Instagram users often manage not one, but several Instagram accounts. Instagram pays particular attention to the number of accounts accessible via the same IP address – it is an account per IP address. A high activity on several Instagram accounts from the same IP address can be considered spam and lead to penalties, ranging from temporary activity limitation to permanent account prohibition.
To avoid being banned from Instagram, social media managers use proxies to simulate the activity of multiple accounts from different IP addresses. The proxy works as an intermediary between the user’s computer and Instagram servers, replacing the user’s actual IP address with a new IP address
Where to get the proxy for Instagram ?
There are a wide range of options on the market. To help you choose the best proxy, we recommend that you ignore the options of the shared proxy server and choose only those of the dedicated proxy. The latter is more flexible and private, it is used and controlled only by the organization which rents it instead of being in public access for thousands of other users.
Below is a list of suppliers we recommend for proxies for Instagram automation with Combin. All of the products listed have been tested and have been shown to be compatible and stable.
Which VPN providers are recommended for Chinese users?
Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia and many other foreign Internet tools and services are banned in China. The Great Firewall blocks the destination IP addresses and checks all data sent and received. It cannot be bypassed using usual methods, such as connection by simple open proxies (HTTP and SOCKS protocols) and widely known protocols, such as OpenVPN, L2TP and PPTP
The following VPN providers grant bypassing censorship and successfully connecting to Instagram with a new IP address
How to connect Instagram accounts via the proxy ?
Once you buy proxies, you get information about their type of protocol, host, port, username and login. Use this information as follows to connect your Instagram accounts via proxy servers.
- Connect with your Instagram accounts.
- Go to Tools> Preferences> Proxy.
At the Proxy window, there are two categories, General Proxy and Proxy of the account.
The general proxy is intended to change the general IP address shared between all Instagram accounts authorized via Combin. The account proxy allows you to define individual proxies for all or a few accounts. This is what it takes to secure the automation of the activity of several Instagram accounts.
Activate the switch next to one of the Instagram accounts on the list.
Select the host type and fill in the empty spaces for connection to the host, port and proxy.
Repeat the operation for all of your Instagram accounts.
