Hello As sad as it is to say, the social network Instagram is currently one of the most popular in the world.
And it’s sad for me to say this because, to put it bluntly, I have an extremely negative attitude towards all products made by Facebook in general, and towards Instagram in particular.
In my deep conviction, all their resources are crap, aimed solely at earning cabbage, without the slightest interest and respect for their users.
About double standards, personal data, etc. I won’t even start, because now it will take me to the other side. And we are still going to talk about deanon on Instagram.
Actually, everything that I wrote above is purely my opinion, and it so happened that there is a huge layer of people who do not share it.
And there are also many who, with the words “I have nothing to hide,” ridicule such opinions.
And then he goes and publishes his photo on Instagram, with a geotag, with a description, well, everything is as it should be. Of course, I don’t blame such people, everyone is free to choose how to live and how to act.
But it is precisely in this connection that the search and collection of information, including deanon on Instagram, is an extremely relevant topic, and it is with it that we will deal today. Or rather, we will get acquainted with a whole set of relevant tools and figure out what information we can get.
Well, let’s start, as usual, from the beginning. And in the beginning, we do not need to collect any information at all. And the understanding of what exactly we want to find or learn about the target carcass. This is the first question you need to ask yourself. Because a clearly formulated answer to this question will save us from a bunch of unnecessary gestures, which means it will help save a lot of time and effort. This is logical simply because any social network accumulates a huge amount of information about the character. And the information is public. Especially if a person actively adds it. And understanding what we are looking for automatically gives an understanding of what to pay attention to.
I’ll give you an example. Let’s say we want to know where the target lives. What are they doing? We look at geotags, read descriptions for photos (suddenly he kindly wrote this somewhere). If there is none of this, then we consider photos for some noticeable places to which. If this is not the case, then we go to shovel followers for habitats, joint photos, signatures and comments. Well, and so on, in the same spirit.
As you can see, a clear understanding of the goal automatically generates options for solving the task for us. And here we are already resting on the level of pumping the skill. And the higher this level, the more your brain will generate options and paths. And accordingly, you will solve the problem faster. And this is a matter of banal experience. There are no secret and secrets methods. If you want to search well – take it and search.
All of the above is absolutely true for any direction of search. And now closer to Instagram. Someone might have a question. And what for then all these utilities? The question is logical. And the answer is pretty simple. It is quite acceptable that you simply shovel the desired page and write it out on a piece of paper, or save it in a file, the necessary information. Quite a normal situation, but there is one nuance. Due to the large amount of information, you can simply miss something. For example, it’s not up to scrolling to the desired comment, or forgetting to expand the signature and read something important. It doesn’t matter what exactly it will be, the important thing is that everyone can miss something. And this is where tools like Osintgram comes to the rescue, allowing us to unload something specific that we need. And then, concentrating, study the information received, without being distracted by additional data.
Deanon on Instagram with Osintgram
And we’ll start with Osintgram. This is a mega useful utility that allows you to analyze the profile of an Instagram user by his nickname.
To install, download it from GitHub ( https://github.com/Datalux/Osintgram ) and install the dependencies:
git clone https://github.com/Datalux/Osintgram.git cd Osintgram pip install -r requirements.txt
Before running the utility, you need to add your account information. You need to do this in the credentials.ini file, which is located in the config directory, in the folder with the program. Enter your account name and password and save. I think that it is not worth focusing on the fact that you need to use the left account.
Now you can go directly to using Osingram. When you first start it is logical to look at the help:
python3 main.py -h
Here, probably, it is necessary to explain the logic of using Osintgram. As you can see from the help, in fact, we only need to enter the name of the user of interest. After that, the utility will log in under the account that we specified in the config and determine the target. After which we can continue.
This is how we do it:
After a successful login, we see a list of commands for saving the results and an invitation to enter. To see the commands for profile analysis, enter: list
As you can see, Osintgram has rather big opportunities. Let’s start by looking at general information about our goal. Enter the command: info
And we already see useful information. But, for example, let’s try to get the phones of those to whom the target is subscribed. Enter fwingsnumber . And Osintgram will ask if we want to get all possible phones? It is clear that in most situations you need to take everything, but I, for demonstration purposes, will limit myself to a dozen.
As you can see, we got a very specific result. Let’s do the same but with e-mails. Enter : flysemail
And here Osintgram worked no less successfully as you can see, let try to download the target photos. Enter : photos
The rest of the commands work exactly the same way. Well, what, where and when to apply it is up to you, depending on the intended goal.
It is also worth remembering that we can save the result in a txt file. To do this, before running the commands, you need to enter FILE=y . Or in a json file, for this, before running the commands, you need to enter: JSON=y .
Regarding closed accounts. Unfortunately, miracles do not happen and you need to be subscribed to the goal. And that means you have to awaken a social engineer in yourself or rivet yourself such a page so that they definitely want to add you. Well, we’re moving on.
