Don’t use worldwide rotating proxies or backconnect rotating proxies as these will trigger security checks with Instagram. Luminati proxy and residential proxies are great, but they are super expensive. Free proxy lists will not work on Instagram and we do not recommend it.

These residential proxies work great on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. You can use them with any social network and you can even stream Netflix and other American TV networks.
