Get username from email

Post by Db949 » Sat Oct 12, 2019 6:28 am

Hi, Is there a way I can scrape usernames from emails? I forgot to save the usernames of my accounts in a text file and only got the email and password.

No, IG does not allow you to get username from input email.

You would need to load the email,passwords of the accounts into the program, then when the program logs in it will scrape the username of the logged in account (from email). Which may be what you want.

But you cannot just dump in a list of emails and ask IG "do these emails map to any accounts". Because if you think about it, it could be a privacy issue
