Instamber is an Instagram automation tool that’s designed to help users expand their Instagram audience. It is used to automate any Instagram task or activity and helps users interact with their Instagram following. Instamber can be used to automate liking/commenting on posts, replying to comments/messages, following/unfollowing other accounts, and many more.
Social media platforms, including Instagram, have strict restrictions on the use of bots on their website. If they detect that you’re using a bot or any other automation tool, then they would immediately ban your account and prevent your IP address from accessing the platform again.
To prevent being banned, you need to pair Instamber with an Instamber proxy. A proxy will handle all of your data traffic so any website you visit will only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server. By continuously rotating proxies, any social media platform will not be able to detect your use of a bot and therefore, will not ban you.
Let’s set up an Instamber 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.
Congratulations! You have now finished configuring an Instamber proxy server.
