In general, you risk your account being banned if you use Flume to infringe upon Instagram's Community Guidelines. Using Flume does not pose an account security threat, as we take great care to protect your privacy and develop high-quality software that is indistinguishable from the official applications. The same cannot be guaranteed with other third-party apps and websites, and your usage of them puts your account at a much greater risk than using Flume.
