Instagram email scraper – How to extract emails from IG

For people that have MAC/Don’t want to manage accounts:

Before we get started. You should know that you will need Instagram accounts to use the Instagram email scraper. Also, they only work on a windows machine(you can use Virtual Box if you have a Mac/Linux machine). If you prefer an online service for this, you can check out: xEmailExtractor- Instagram email scraper. We manage XEmailExtractor too.

The advantage of that over the windows app:

  • You don’t have to manage any accounts, you don’t need to have a Windows machine
  • You can save a lot of time, but it’s more expensive because we have to do all these things for you. 
  • You don’t have to download anything.
  • You will save more time by using this.

So if you’re would like to know more about that you can message us on the chat, we usually respond in less than 24h.

Tutorial about the iGramTool – Instagram email scraper:

In this tutorial, we’re going to talk about how to scrape emails from Instagram. There are many methods that you can use to achieve that, but the best way to do that is to use our Instagram email scraper.

If you prefer to watch videos no problem, we got you covered. Here is a video tutorial about using our software to scrape emails from Instagram:

YouTube video

If you are still reading this means you prefer reading instead of videos and that is fine. Follow the steps below and you will be able to scrape emails from Instagram very fast.

First of all, you should have an active license and it should have your machine GUID. If you need help to activate your license follow this simple tutorial:

Scraping users

So the first thing that you have to do to scrape emails is to get usernames. To do that you can use another tool from us that comes in the same package that only costs $47 per year. You have 2 tools that can scrape usernames:

  • A follower scraper
  • A user by hashtags scraper

If you want the emails to target as good as possible, we recommend scraping users by hashtags. Because using that you will get users interested in the hashtag. So you will have a better chance to get them to take action. In this tutorial, I am going to use that scraper for the demonstration.

User scraper by hashtags

How to scrape emails from instagram

After you log in, you will see a window like the one above. Now, to scrape users you will have to log in using one Instagram account. You can use any account, but we still don’t recommend using important accounts. You can even create a new IG account for scraping. After you enter your username and password click the login button. You should see on the “Logs” if everything is fine and if it’s you can continue to step 2.

Now you can import a list of hashtags or you can start writing them in the left box one by one. After that click the start button and let the software do its job, you can see the progress on the logs.

As you can see the tool is scraping pretty fast. But sometimes you may get an error message like this: “Hashtag gym Error messaged received from Instagram: Please wait a few minutes before you try again.”. This is normal and the tool will pause for a few minutes as Instagram recommended. After that everything will continue as nothing happened.

Yet, there is some Instagram limitation when it comes to hashtags. For example, you can’t scrape all the posts from a hashtag. Instagram usually limits the number of posts you can scrape. But that won’t be a problem if you are using popular hashtags. Because usually, they will get a lot of posts every day so you can keep scraping for as long as you want.

Exporting usersnames

After you’re satisfied with how many usernames you got. You can click the export button. But make sure you click to export only the usernames. Not all the columns, because you need only the usernames for the final step, here is a screenshot:

how to export scraped users

Now after removing you may notice that you have fewer usernames than the tool scraped. But that is normal, if you check the log you will see something like this:

5/27/2019 1:34:25 PM:Duplicates removed, unique users: 17362 will be saved
5/27/2019 1:34:25 PM:Removing duplicates users before saving, currently the list have: 24521

You can see from the log that duplicated users are being removed before export. This happens because one user may make 2 posts in a short period so the tool adds the user 2 times. Also if you are using 2 related hashtags there is a big chance some users used them too. So this is why you will get fewer users when you export them.

Instagram followers scraper

You can also use our followers’ scraper. Which comes included in the same package. You will get the user by hashtags scraper and the email scraper to get usernames for the email scraper.

Using the tool is very easy, you have to log in with your iGramTool account(to verify your license). Then you have to log in with an Instagram account. We recommend using accounts that aren’t important to you. Because you may get blocked temporarily from Instagram. IG may also ask you to change your password.

After you log in, enter the username from where you want to get followers. Unfortunately, right now Instagram limits our scraper at around 30k followers. So you won’t be able to scrape after you reach that number. We’re working on ways to make it faster, but until now nothing worked.

Instagram email scraper

Now you can open the tool named: “ – Instagram Emails Checker.exe”. This is the tool that will scrape the emails from the users’ bio after you import them. This is how it looks:

Now click the import button, select the users you’ve exported from the other tool. Then you can select some filters too, they are pretty easy to understand, so I won’t go in detail about them. Also, you can select the number of threads. We don’t recommend more then 5 threads because if you try to use more you will usually get blocked pretty fast.

Here is how the results look like:

You can export them to CSV or text file, if you export them as .csv you will be able to open them in Excel.
