Frequently asked questions
Is PinBotAI durable/safe?
You may have heard that MassPlanner is being shutdown.
To prevent such a thing from happening to PinBot, InstaQ and all our upcoming products we will be privatizing. This means we will no longer have public websites/pages. Word of mouth will be the only way to get in touch with any of our products. To reduce such attention/risk our prices will drastically increase. All public sales will close very soon, if you wish to make a purchase the time is now.
If one of our products ever gets shutdown, we will anonymously publish all code online for everyone to use.
It will then be up to the goodwill of anonymous coders to support it.
What is the purpose of PinBotAI?
PinBotAI has been developed primarily for automating marketing activities.
Its purpose is to automate the many repetitive tasks when building a Pinterest authority account.
It can help you gain more brand awareness, followers, likes, repins but most importantly more website traffic and sales.
What makes PinBotAI unique?
Our team has over 4 years of experience in Pinterest marketing and automation. Since PinBotAI is the 4th version of its kind, we've molded it into the ultimate Pinterest marketing tool. Many of the shortcomings found in previous versions have been corrected and improvements were applied.
PinBotAI versus other tools?
PinBotAI is very different from the competition because it's designed to deal with anomaly detection systems. Such systems are used by many social media platforms (including Pinterest) to detect bots. In the past some of our customers/users were unfortunate and had some accounts banned, such a thing was mostly due to abusive behavior of PinBot's settings. Anomaly detection works by comparing "normal/average" with, usually, new/fresh accounts. This allows social media platforms to quickly detect and ban accounts which appear to be run by bots.
To deal with this, we allow PinBotAI to emulate real user behavior and greatly reducing the chances of being flagged and/or banned.
Additional features which competitors are lacking include the ability to scrape images from external sources (such as Tumblr). We also have a Keyword Generator tool, allowing you to diversify and tap into micro-niches. An invite feature which allows you to automatically invite other users to become contributors for your boards, this is a very important feature because you can now let other users build your boards and grow exponantially.
Finally, we have a forum dedicated to Pinterest tips, tricks, guides and tutorials.
Do I need PinBotAI?
It depends, as with any other product.
If you are looking to use PinBotAI to get rich quick, then I have to disappoint you that it will not.
If you are looking to get a lot of traffic and/or followers overnight, then no.
But if you are wanting to build a long-term business or scale up your existing business then this will definitely help you a lot.
Please do remember that a tool, any tool, is just a dumb piece of equipment, not a magic formula for success. If you wish to be successful, get a lot of followers and visitors, then you need a solid strategy. You can find a ton of strategies on our forum (or any other website), the magic only happens when you start applying them diligently. And once you have a good strategy to follow, then you should use a tool/bot to automate some aspects of the process which will save you a ton of time and money.
Can I see PinBotAI in action?

How legal is such a tool?
Social media sites, including Pinterest, are doing their very best to stop bots and unauthorized automation tools.
However, using PinBotAI is completely fine as long as you do not spam or use it for any malicious purposes.
Please use PinBotAI solely for automating your marketing activities without causing any harm/spam.
How does PinBotAI work?
Behind the scenes, it uses the HTTP protocol to emulate the same actions as if you were doing them manually through your web browser.
Does it work on Windows/Mac/Linux?
Yes. PinBotAI has been developed using the Java programming language, thus it can run on any operating system as long as the latest Java SE version is installed. Your operating system must also have a graphical user interface, it will not work from the command line.
On how many machines can I use it?
In trial mode, you can run PinBotAI on as many machines as you like.
However, each PinBotAI Premium license can only be used by one machine. This means you cannot run it on two different machines at the same time, using the same license ID - you are required to purchase an additional license to do so.
You are allowed, at any time, to transfer your license from one machine to the next using our online form (no limits).
What are the hardware requirements?
It is advisable to have at least 512mb of (RAM) memory.
A single core CPU is sufficient.
At least 5GB of avaialble hard drive space.
The above, minimum requirements, are sufficient to run 1-3 accounts on PinBotAI.
If you would like to run more accounts, the requirements will be higher.
It's not advisable to run more than 50 accounts on a single PinBotAI instance - to solve this you can install multiple instances of PinBotAI on a single computer.
