I’m sure that before reading this blog post you must have tried some random websites to hack your Instagram account.
Those fake site asks for the username and then show you some cool animation and at the end ask for the complete survey or human verification.
These sites can never ever hack Instagram accounts.
Look Instagram is a billion-dollar company. They have hackers, a good amount of money, and other resources. Someone with a B.tech degree and having 1-2 years of experience can’t hack an Instagram account.
The bottom line doesn’t waste your time on anything that claims to hack anything in 1 minute.
The only way to hack any account is by making your victim fool with some technical skills.
For example, providing them a fake login page that will look like a real Instagram login page. On login, you will receive the password & the victim will redirect to the original website.
These are the working methods to hack Instagram
This is the most underrated method to hack accounts. Basically, a keylogger is a software or app for smartphones that can record every typed word by the victim.
So when the victim will log in to the account all of his information will be recorded. On top of that, it will record other sensitive information such as messages, etc.
The biggest problem is you have to install a keylogger on the victim device.
On the internet, you can find both free and paid keyloggers. If you are looking for a free keylogger then try Smart Keylogger. Keep in mind, that you have to access the device again to view the data. You can’t view their data on your phone.
There are paid keyloggers available as well. Once you install them on the victim’s phone you can receive all typed data on your smartphone or any other device.
hoverwatch is one of these kinds of keyloggers that you can try.
It is available for mac/windows and android operating systems. I tried it on an android phone, it is undetectable by all antiviruses.
However, the installation part is complicated especially if you are a non-techy person. Here is a step-by-step article about how to install hoverwatch on an android smartphone.
The smart keylogger is free and good enough to get the password or any other details. The best thing about this app it stores every app’s data in a separate file. So when you want to access your data you can find it easily.
You can also lock this app so nobody can access the data except you.
Here are the steps to install a smart keylogger on any android device.
- Install it from the play store then open it. It will prompt you to register an account. Create your account.
- Then login into your account by entering the password.
- Once you enter the password it will prompt you to turn on accessibility. Click on yes, it will open phone settings. Here you need to turn on the Smart keylogger.
- Now Go to the smart keylogger, it can ask for the password again.
- Now you need to some permission to files, allow it.
Now you are done, whatever your victim will type on his smartphone, a smart keylogger is going to record in simple text forward. You can access it anytime by opening a smart keylogger and then typing the password.
Here is the proof of the smart keylogger. I open WhatsApp and send messages to my friend.
If you have installed it on someone’s else phone then make sure you hide the app. There are a lot of launchers available in the play store that can hide this app.
Tip: If you want instagram password then clear the data. Your victim will again login and this app will save the password.
How to Protect
- Keep your device up to date. Updates are more important than anti-virus.
- Apply step 2 verification on your accounts so if someone gets your password he can’t access your account.
- For Android, don’t give your phone to anyone. If you noticed a sudden battery decrease then someone might install a keylogger in your phone.
Phishing is the oldest method to hack accounts.
In the phishing method, hackers create a website that looks similar to the original Instagram website.
However when victims log in with their username & password. He will be redirected to the original site and the hacker receive login details. Check the following screenshot.
As you can see in the URL it is different than Instagram. You don’t need to learn programming. I will provide you script and free hosting that you can use to make your Instagram fake website.
How To Create an Instagram Phishing Page
These days, the modern browser starts warning users when they visit phishing sites. However, I found the solution to this method. I made changes to the phishing script. That’s why make sure you download phishing scripts from this page only
On another side, free hosting companies also start suspended accounts that use phishing scripts. There is no way to bypass this. The only solution is using paid hosting.
If you buy hosting from any reputable company for phishing then your account will be suspended.
However, if you will buy from a small, startup company then you will not face any problems.
You can try hostingspell and digitalocean.
The paid hosting companies also provide you with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Within 30 days, you can cancel your account and get the money back.
If you want to use free hosting then try 000webhost (they will ban your account). They will allow phishing for some time. They will suspend your account. If you are doing it for educational purposes you can use 000webhost.
For Instagram phishing, you also need facebook phishing. A lot of users still login into Instagram using Facebook.
I have made a single script that can hack the following accounts.
Yes, a single script to create a phishing page for all three of them.
- Phishing script: Download Here
- Free Hosting: Sign Up for 000webhost. (Just for a demo, if you will try they will suspend your account)
I assume you know how to create an account for 000webhost. Just make sure you don’t install WordPress or don’t use any website builder.
We need to use a file manager for uploading the files. Here are the steps for uploading.
- Now login to your 000webhosting account. After that find the File Manager.
- Open it & go to public_html folder. Upload the phishing script that you downloaded. The following screenshot describes how to upload a zip folder
- Once the upload is complete you need to upload another file. Unzipper.php, basically we can’t extract files using 000webhost. Download here unzipper.php. After downloading again upload just like you have uploaded the zip file.
- Once the upload is complete then open your site ur l(you will get it from 000webhost dashboard) you need to open example.com/unzipper.php here example.com means your site. It will show you something similar to the following page. As you can see I have selected the Archive.zip file. After selecting it, click on the Unzip Archive Button. It will extract all the files.
- Now Go back to My Sites, and copy the site URL. Now open the example.com/archieve/. (here example.com means your site URL) It will show you something like this.
- if you are seeing the above message then it means you have done everything correctly. Now at the end of URL and in the end type ?id=instagram. It will look something like example.com/?id=instagram It will open a page similar to the following page.
If your victim clicks on the Login with Facebook this will open a Facebook phishing page. When the user login into the account his username & password will be saved in the users.txt file
You can access this file by typing yourwebsites..com/users.txt
When you want to view Facebook phishing then type ?id=facebook at the end of the URL.
when you want to access the Snapchat phishing page then type /?id=snapchat at the end of the URL.
Snapchat and Facebook login details will also be saved into the users.txt file.
You can also apply Cloudflare for HTTPS also known as SSL certificate. It convinces users that the site is safe to use.
How to Protect yourself
- Always check the URL before login
- Do not Open Any link from an unknown source
Social Engineering is nothing just using common sense. You can also combine social engineering with the above methods for convincing the victim to login into the fake page, installing a keylogger, etc.
In other words, hacking accounts through psychology.
A lot of people set a password using the name of dad/mom with a mixture of some other characters.
Some people use the same password for every account. So if you can get the password of other accounts then you might get their Instagram account.
How to Protect your account
Use a Strong Password. Here is my recipe to create a strong password. Think about a sentence in mind, anything. For this example let’s use the following one.
Tinku was Our First Dog.
Now Pick the first character of every word. It will look something like this
Last but least add some special characters to it.
I have picked 098 special characters so I can remember. Now you have a strong password.
Browser Saved Password
When we log in browser asks us to save the password. So next time you can log in without entering information.
You can get that information easily. I suppose most of us use the chrome browser. Here are the steps to get a saved password from Chrome. For this, make sure you know the device password.
Without a password, you can’t get a password
- Open chrome and go to settings
- Click on Password
- Here search for the site whose password you are looking.
- It will show all the saved passwords. Click on the username which you want to get the password.
- Now Click on the show. This time it will ask for your device password. Once you are authorized then you will see the password.
No matter from which device you want to retrieve the password the process is the almost same.
If you can’t access the device then hacking Gmail is a good idea. Chrome saves all the information inside the person’s Gmail account. Here are the ways to hack a Gmail account.
By Hacking Facebook Account
A lot of people use login with Facebook to access Instagram accounts.
You can use the above-mentioned methods to hack someone’s FB account. Generally, people don’t pay close attention to Facebook accounts. They have a weak password for the FB account.
If you try social engineering then you can hack it easily.
Before you send the Instagram phishing page make sure you find out how your victim accessed your Instagram account.
By Creating Fake Login App
A lot of users browse insta by the android app. If you have app development knowledge then you can use create a fake Instagram app.
Here I what I did to hack the account.
- Get your phone to browse Instagram
- Uninstall original app
- Installed Fake App
In the fake app when my victim tried to login into his account. App Show an error
Something is wrong, Please uninstall current version & install latest version from play store.
Although it sounds cool however making apps for phones is extremely difficult. If you are the victim is using iPhone then it is extremely difficult.
In the backend, it forwards me his username & password. To create a fake either you can spend 2-3 months in app development or hire an app developer from Fiverr.
How to Protect yourself
- Apply step-2 verification on your account
