Getting access to an Instagram account can be tougher than it looks. While the security of the platform certainly has a few holes that only expert coders can access to get information, a regular Joe can’t do this without help. We are not here to discuss the ethics behind doing such a thing. The reasons can vary and be entirely logical on your end. We are here to discuss the methods you can use to hack into an Instagram account even if you are not a code expert.
Most of the times the need to keep an Instagram account supervised is mainly due to the current state of the world. Internet predators are a genuine threat to families everywhere. There is also the occasional red flag in a few relationships when a partner suspects foul play from the other one. Having some certainty can always help us to back up any claims we might have, or it can simply help us keep track of the people who engage our loved ones.
Having said that, these are some of the methods we recommend to get access to an Instagram login password:
Use the Instagram hacking software
This has proven to be one of the most reliable tools found online to gain access to an IG account. The levels of success they’ve had with has translated on a lot of people seeking the developers to pursue legal action against. The app is regarded by many as one of the most user-friendly key cracking tools online.
This is how it works:
- To download the tool and learn more deeply how to use it read the manual from Frank Verhoeven’s blog. You can access it from your desktop or your smartphone.
- The InstaRipper’s official website will offer a choice of Operating System to be installed on, once you download it the .exe file it will run automatically on your device.
- Once program is installed all you have to do is type the username you need to supervise, and you will have a full view of all the activity on the targeted account for limited periods.
- Make sure to enable the ID hiding features of the app. The option is there to hide your IP address from ISPs, and to erase cookies as well as the cache memory information from the browser used to access the utility.
Phishing is probably the oldest trick in the book to gain access to an account on any website. While it’s well known and most companies have made considerable investments to avoid phishing, it still works for casual users since a lot of people don’t pay attention to the HTTP address of most websites. Up until not so long ago, it required some level of skill to be used. These days there are a few internet services out there that can provide the right tools you need to phish an Instagram account from a web browser. Pay attention to the following steps:
1. First things first:
- Go to Filezilla.com and create a new account. This website will provide you Publish Files that can be combined with hosting sites to get the data you are looking for.
- Now you will have to visit gearhost.com to create a temporal hosting page. Make sure to use an email address other than your main one to avoid being tracked.
- Once you are in gearhost.com, you can create the fake landing page following the structure of the Instagram login page.
- After you are done, you need to download the publish file to handle the Phishing from Filezilla to your desktop.
2. After handling that you need to take care of the following:
- Locate the publish file and right-click on it to import the content. Make sure to choose the option to “Browse & Select Your Publish File.”
- After you are done, you need to click on the publish file once more and choose “Site Manager” to pick the “Your Phishing Website” option and connect to it.
- Most of this procedure is best handled in separate folders that are easily reachable in your main desktop, so is best to create them directly and work from there.
3. To Make the Hack Work, you also need:
- After you work with the publish file for the first time, you will see two folders in your site just at the right side of your Filezilla file.
- You will have to open the “Site” folder and look for the “wwwroot” folder. Once located, delete the hosting file.
- Now you need to minimize the client you are setting up and extract the “Instagram Phishing Files” that you will find in a .zip directory right on your desktop.
- After you are done, you need to go to the client once more and open the file located on the left side of it. Open the “Instagram Phishing Files” Folder.
- You need to pick all the files in that folder and upload them.
4. Now, to close the Process:
- After all the settings are in place, you have to go back to Filezilla.com and make sure that the website and the publish file are in sync. Make sure to check as you begin the hack and after you are done.
- Now it’s time to wait. You will need that your target logs-in to Instagram to get everything you need.
- After some time has passed, you need to open the client file and search for the “Logger.txt” file located at the right side of the client, open it up with a double click and collect the information you need.
- Voila! you are done
- More detailed explained tutorial how to make a phishing page can be found on this guide from Webrevelador’s blog. It explains how to make one for Facebook. But process is exactly same for Instagram.
Keylogger is one of the most accessible programs used to gain access to Instagram accounts all over the world. The runs under a simple principle: it can record and store all the keyboard activity of a single device and save the results in a text file that can be explored at your leisure. There are two versions of this software: Keylogger for desktops and ikeymonitor for smart devices. Since Instagram is mostly accessed from smartphones, you probably need iKeymonitor.
To make the program work this what you need to do:
- Search for the Keylogger website or download the app from the app store that suits your OS. You will have to create an account using an email account.
- You need to verify your account. This step can’t be avoided; once you do it, you will get an e-mail from them.
- You will be asked to click on the link that is found on the e-mail to access the utility and log in with your newly created account. A popup will come up with a file.
- Now it comes the hard part: you have to download the file and install it on the targeted smart device.
- After you install the file, you will need for a license key provided on a separate email. You need to be located on another desktop or have your own smartphone close to you.
If you manage to install the software successfully, you will receive the log file on a schedule that you can set up at your convenience.
Guessing the Password
Sometimes hacking an Instagram account can be fairly easy as merely guessing the password. If the person you are trying to supervise is a relative or someone close to you, taking a shot at guessing can be as easy as trying out a significant date, the name of a loved one, the name of a pet or any other trait related to their personality. You have to remember that even if there are a lot of recommendations out there making a case to build a strong password, people still make the mistake of using personal information on them because it’s easy to remember.
