AiGrow is a management tool that’s specifically built for Instagram and any Instagram user. Through it, users can increase their Instagram followers by reaching out to a larger audience and engaging with them. AiGrow enables you to automate any of your Instagram activities ranging from liking/commenting on posts to directly messaging any of your followers.
Instagram, as well as other social media platforms, have strict restrictions against the use of bots on their website. If they detect that you’re using the AiGrow bot then they would immediately ban your account and blacklist your IP address. To avoid getting banned from Instagram, you would need the help of an AiGrow proxy.
An AiGrow proxy will handle all of your data traffic for you so any website you visit will only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server. Through utilizing residential proxies, which uses residential IPs from actual devices, Instagram would not be able to detect your use of a bot so they won’t be able to ban you or your account.
Let’s set up an AiGrow proxy server.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
