If you manage many accounts, it is inevitable that you might get the "suspicious activity" message. If you have 100's of accounts, this will be extremely difficult to manually verify one by one. I will attempt to explain how to automate this process with the auto SMS verification feature.
The first thing you will have to do is create a Getsmscode account. This is the service that will provide us with mobile numbers that we can use to verify our accounts automatically. You can create an account here.
Once you open the getsmscode webpage, you will see in the top right a button to sign up. You will be asked to enter an email and password. Go ahead and do that. Once the account is created, you will need to verify your account. You can do that by opening your email inbox and clicking on the confirmation link you have received. Do note that it can take a few minutes to receive a verification email.
After you have verified your account, you can log in to access your account dashboard. The first thing we have to do is add funds to our account so we can generate numbers. To do that, click on the topup link on the sidebar.
From this page, you will be able to add funds to your account. You can usee PayPal of bitcoin to as payment method. Paypal funds are added instantly to your account balance, so this is the prefered way to add funds.
After the funds have been added to your account, you need to favourite Instagram number service, to be able to generate numbers for Instagram. To do that, you can click on the projects list in the sidebar and click on the favourite button for the Instagram service. If you are having trouble doing this, you can also simply click on this link to do this automatically.
We are almost done, all we have to do now is get our API token, so we can enter it into GMT2. To find your token, navigate to your User Home from the sidebar and at the top of the button, you will be able to find your token.
Click on Show me token, to see your token and copy the value that is generated. Now switch over to GMT2 and click on the cogwheel top right to open your general settings. From here you will see the option to enable SMS verification and enter your API token and getsmscode email address.
Once this is done, you are fully done and your account will automatically be verified when needed.
- Only accounts that don't have a verified number will be verified automatically. This is because if an account already has a number verified, IG won't ask you to submit a new number.
- An account will only be attempted to be verified twice. After that, you will have to manually verify the account or restart GMT2. This is to avoid wasting all your funds on a single account.
- Sometimes you will need to manually unpause an account after it has been verified. ONLY DO THIS IF THE STATUS IS NOT "verifying".
