Instagram API limits

Sorry for this question. I guess it is pretty basic, but I just want an straight answer.

I am planning to do a site that lets you manage your account through the site after logging into the site with instagram. My doubt is: do I need an instagram authorization on my site to use the API (maybe after a code review or something) or I can use it right away? And in the later case, when I get the user token after sign up, i can allow them to do whatever they want (like, comment, post, get the feed and follow) through my site without the use of proxies? I meant if I have 100 user logged hitting instagram from the same IP, what is to say that i am not a single user spamming from the hell out?

Great repo! Thanks in advance.

    No need to get api approval. You can use module as it is. It's actually phone emulator :) I wouldn't recommend you to use accounts without proxy. Insta is pretty paranoid about bots and spam and could easily ban all your accounts.

    Thank you so much for the quick response. However sorry but, I did not understand the last part. If i use the API with the token in behalf of the logged user I do not need a proxy, right? Because I have the user permission. The proxy is only needed if you are using a phone emulator directly.

    This is not Instagram official api client, if you think this is it. And you probably cannot use usual api token with it. Let's say you will need proxy if you have more than one account.

    Cool thanks!! In that case I'll try it out with some proxies I bought. I have to see if it support proxies with username and password. :)

    I doubt you'll be able to afford one proxy per user though. It doesn't scale very well sadly :(

    Why do you think so? Each session is separate object with cookies and proxy. I have about 200 accounts working in parallel with no problems.

    Wouldn't you need 200 proxy with each a different IP to prevent being flagged? You'd have to trust the proxy provider pretty well too because they can spy on the data if wanted

    You will. Each user has it's own IPv6 proxy. If using https connection it's pretty secure :)

    Just one more question and then I'll close this issue. Is there any possibility that this api repository stop working? I am in the middle of development and planning to launch my humble site in a few weeks and i want to be aware of the possibility of that happening. From my understanding if this stop working all apps on cellphones would stop working either so there of no risk from that happening but I want to be completely sure.

    , I cannot say for sure, but I have this repo as a core for my project, so I am trying to improve it as I could, same as some other contributors.

    Hi , just checking back to see how's your experience been so far in using an IPv6 proxy for every user. I couldn't find much information on the web, so anything and everything you can share will be much appreciated, thanks! 🙏
