Kicksta is an automation tool that’s specially designed to boost and grow the user’s Instagram account. It will automate any of Instagram’s tasks such as posting, liking/commenting on posts, following/unfollowing other users, and many more. Kicksta is an excellent marketing tool as it can help you reach and engage with a larger audience.
Instagram, as well as other social media platforms, have strict restrictions against the use of bots and other automation tools on their site. If they detect that you’re using a bot, then they would immediately ban your account and blacklist your IP address from ever accessing their platform again.
To prevent getting banned when using Kicksta, you need to pair it with a Kicksta proxy. A Kicksta proxy will enable you to automate your Instagram activities and also allow you to create and manage multiple Instagram accounts. Through constantly rotating proxies, websites will not be able to detect your use of automation bots.
Let’s set up a Kicksta 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.
