Three levels of match:

  • HIGH: name, e-mail and phone number (obfuscated) match;
  • MEDIUM: name and/or e-mail and/or phone match;
  • LOW: only one of them matches.

? Notes

  • Name and e-mail (or phone number) are mandatory;
  • To leave e-mail/phone empty, simply set -e/-p " ";
  • E-mail/phone asterisks are just for show and can be omitted;
  • If omitted, timeout is zero; it’s recommended to set at least 10 seconds to avoid being detected;
  • Phone number must be in the same format as in the example, i.e. it must contain the area code (including plus symbol) and the whitespace;
  • When the match level is HIGH, it will prompt whether to stop or continue searching.

While logged in your Instagram account:

  1. Right-click and click on Inspect Element to open the developer console;
