Instagram is a widely growing social media platform with billions of users and it is more than just a social network, in other words, people around the world doing business and reaching more audiences using Instagram. It is also a very safe and secure platform and directly hacking or cracking anyone’s account is near impossible until users make a stupid mistake.

So today I am going to introduce you to an automated powerful python script that can be used to scrap information from Instagram or osint information of a particular Instagram user.
What is Scrapping?
Suppose you have a huge database or collection of records of students’ names, roll no, phone no, Emails, etc. and you just want the list of students’ names and phone numbers, in this case, you copy and paste the details.
But if you code a script to automate this work and you just have to enter the database file or access the script and then the script automatically generates a new list with the student’s name and phone number. It is faster than your manual work.
The process of extracting required data from an existing database is known as scrapping. Let’s see how you can perform Instagram scrapping using an automated python script called Osintgram.
- Python 3
- Fake Instagram Account(Two Factors Authentication Should Be Disabled)
If you don’t have a fake account then don’t worry you can easily create one using Temporary Mail websites just google it.
The Process can be different for windows users and you may need to set up the GIT and Python3 in windows CMD you can google for it. In this article, we explained this method in Kali Linux.
Open your Terminal and type the following command to clone the automated script
Now once you successfully completed all the steps without getting an error then type the following command to integrate your fake Instagram account with this script
Now enter your credentials and press enter then run the following command for usage
if your terminal shows an error while running this command then try 3-4 times and then you can see the banner of the script and help commands.
Note:- You must have your target user in your fake account following list and the target user must have a public account if you want to scrap information about the target user and their following and followers.
