For people that have MAC/Don’t want to manage accounts:
Before we get started, you should know that you will need instagram accounts in order to use these scrapers and also they only work on a windows machine(you can use virtualbox if you have a mac/linux machine), if you would prefer an online service for this, you can check out: https://www.xemailextractor.com/ that website is owned by us 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. So if you’re would like to know more about that you can message us on the live chat.
Now let’s contiue with the tutorial:
In this tutorial we’re going to talk about how to scrape emails from Instagram, there are multiple methods that you can use in order to achieve that, but we think 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:
If you are still reading this means you prefer reading articles instead of watching videos and that is fine, just 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 be activated for your machine, if you need help to activate your license for your machine please follow this simple tutorial: https://www.igramtool.com/blog/activate-license/
So the first things that you have to do in order to scrape emails is to get usernames, to do that you can use another tool from us that is included in the same package that only costs $47 per year, you have 2 tools that can scrape usernames, a follower scraper and a user by hashtags scraper, for scraping emails, if you want them to be targeted as much as possible we recommend scraping users by hashtags. Because using that you will get users that are at least a bit interested in your niche so you will have a better change to get them to take action, so in this tutorial I am going to use that scraper for the demonstration.
After you login you will see a window like the one above, now, in order yo scrape users you will have to login using one instagram account, you can any account, no one had any problems while scraping with their personal account, but you can even create a new ig account just 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 just click the start button and let the software do it’s job, you can see the progress on the logs.
As you can see the tool is scraping pretty fast, however 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 just pause for a few minutes as Instagram recommended after that everything will continue as nothing happened.
However, there are some Instagram limitation when it comes to hashtags. For example you can 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 everyday so you can keep scraping for as long as you want.
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 finial step, here is a screenshot:
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 users that are duplicated will be removed, this happens because one user may make 2 posts in a short period of time so it will be added 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 less users when you export them.
Instagram email scraper
Now you can open the tool named: “iGramTool.com – Instagram Emails Checker.exe”. This is the tool that will scrape the emails from users bio after you import them. This is how it looks:
Now just click the import button, select the users you’ve previously exported and 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 thread, 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.
Sometimes you may see the error: “Error – pausing for 30 seconds”
This means that you were blocked temporary but this is normal and the tool will continue without your interaction once the blocking is over.
