Activating your License
Go to the ‘LICENSE’ tab in the software (blue button, upper left corner) and paste your activation key and click on the “Activate” button to activate the modules you just bought. Your activation period will start from the moment you use your key for the first time.
The activation key is included in the email you receive from PayPal. You can also find your activation key in your Paypal transaction info on the PayPal website. If you bought with Bitcoin then you should have stored your activation key to your hard-drive before purchasing. The activation key starts with MS0001- or MS0002-. Please contact us if you somehow lost your activation key.
Warning: Each MonsterSocial license is a single hardware license. It is intented to be used on only 1 machine and not go back and forth between machines. You can replace your computer 3 times. You can also reactivate your license unlimited times on the machine you last activated MonsterSocial on.
If you have activation issues, please email us for further assistance.
Proxy Configuration (optional)
If you plan to use proxies. Go to the proxy manager. You can download public proxies automatically or you can import some from a text file. Most features require the HTTPS checkbox enabled, so make sure your proxy supports it and that you enable it. Testing a proxy enables the HTTPS flag automatically if it works. Proxies are optional. They are used to hide your true location and to avoid spam detection from a single IP address. Be aware that Instagram and Facebook do a country check at login! Never use free/publicly available proxies. They are already blacklisted by all social networks.
Before you can run any features, you need to add your accounts in the Account Manager of the module you bought. Go to the account manager. Add your accounts, specify a proxy (optional).
You can also check if your accounts are working by clicking the test button. This test will also use the specified proxy if you selected one.
If you are adding Facebook accounts, make sure you disable the extra security checks like mobile login approvals. If you are adding proxies to Facebook or Instagram accounts, make sure they are from the same region as the user of the account, or the account might lock up and ask security questions (Facebook) or change the password (Instagram)!
Click on the feature you want to run on the menu. If you hover over a feature then you will see an explanation of what the feature does. If you open it by left clicking on it, you will see that info again in the footer of the new tab.
Once you opened the feature tab, click on the start button. Most features require parameters like a tag or an URL. Simply past them in the text box and press return.
Some features have limitations by the social network itself. Please try to stay within the limits. You can specify the limits yourself in all feature tabs that do multiple actions on each of your accounts. Click the ribbongroup button under the limit settings to learn more about the limitations of the concerning social network.
This can sometimes happen on slow or bad routed connections. Simply download this: https://monstersocial.net/get/MonsterSocial.dat, rename the file to MonsterSocial.exe and place it in %appdata%\MonsterSocial (full path: C:\Users\YOUR WINDOWS USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\MonsterSocial\MonsterSocial.exe)
If you purchased MonsterSocial from within the software then you can simply click the validate button in the license tab or restart the application. If you bought it on the website then you need to insert your activation key in the license tab. They key has been emailed to your Paypal email and it can also be found in your Paypal transaction info (field: Key To Activate). An activation key always starts with MS000X-…

Yes. You can update the hardware ID of your license with your activation key. You can find your activation key in your Paypal transaction info. They key has also been emailed to your Paypal email. You can also send us your payment info together with your new hardware ID in the contact form and we will update your license for you.
Before you check anything. Login with your credentials with a normal webbrowser like Google Chrome in incognito mode or Internet Explorer in private mode (and use the same proxy, if you use one) and see if there is an unlock or advertisement screen after login. If there is an unlock screen, answer it and login again with MonsterSocial.
- In case you are using proxies, make sure your proxies work. If you have no proxy linked to your social network account, check if there is a default proxy and if so, make sure it’s working. Note that free public proxies are low quality and get banned faster, because a lot of people use them for spamming. They often go offline too. Never use foreign proxies on Facebook and Instagram accounts.
- You could be spamming the concerning social network too hard and the social network temporarily disabled your login. Sometimes Instagram changes the password of users who spam too hard, you can restore the password via email.
- Make sure you disable the extra security settings on login (two-factor authentication, SMS verification, known devices, …).
- Be aware that Facebook and Instagram do a country IP check on login.
- The bot does not login on Tumblr with a Yahoo account, you need to create a Tumblr specific password via this link: https://www.tumblr.com/forgot_password. Reset the password via the link sent to your email and use that password to login to Tumblr.
- Make sure you are always using the latest version. Older versions might no longer work completely. You can download the latest version here.
- It could be that a license is expired or out of sync, click the validate button in the license tab or restart the software and retry.
- If none of the above is giving you an answer then you are probably using a crack. Cracks don’t work and never will. If you used a crack before buying, then you might need to remove all references to monstersocial.net in the Windows hosts file.
- This usually happens when you are spamming the concerning social network too fast. Please stay within the social network its limitations.
- Try the feature in a normal webbrowser like Internet Explorer. See if your follow, like or comment stays after a page refresh.
- Go to the account manager, select the accounts that have the issue and clear cookies.
- Close MonsterSocial, go to %appdata%\MonsterSocial and rename settings.dat to settings.old
- MonsterSocial might require an update. Always use the latest version!
- The social network might have updated their code. Report it through the contact form. We will check if we can replicate the issue and fix it as fast as we can. We try to solve all issues within 72 hours.
This only happens in the trial version. You can add unlimited accounts in the paid version.
We aren’t completely sure about this, because accounts sometimes show different behaviour. It’s better that you read the limitation document on the concerning social network. You can specify the limits yourself in MonsterSocial. Here are -what we think- the limits:
- Facebook: max 5000 friends in total. no like, join or followers limits
- Instagram: 60 actions per hour, max 7500 following in total
- Pinterest: 300 actions per day
- Tumblr: 200 actions per day, max 5000 following in total
- Twitter: 40 actions per hour, 1000 per day, max 2000 + (the amount of followers + 10%) following in total
If you think this is wrong, please tell us.
Currently MonsterSocial is only available for Microsoft Windows XP or newer having .NET framework 3.5 installed. We might create a Mac version later, but there are no actual plans yet. You can run Windows on a modern Mac. You will need to install Windows in a virtual machine like virtualbox or use bootcamp to create a multiboot.
No, the software needs to be running. All connections to social networks are created directly from your computer.
