The Instagram Profile Finder searches Instagram for whatever name you give it, and returns the first profile resulting in that search.

How to use the Instagram Profile Finder

Let’s say you find yourself with a huge list of names. Either from some form, game, event, anything. How do you use that list?

One way could be to look for these people on Instagram and auto-follow them, so that they follow you back. Instagram Profile finder will do that job for you, at scale. Feed it with 10s of thousands of names, and it’ll look for their profiles on Instagram.

It also works with company names, or nicknames, and can be used to reach out to someone on some other social network (twitch, GitHub, Reddit) and contact them on Instagram.

When you want to export multiple targets without having to change the #2 field every time, you can use a Google spreadsheet URL instead.

To do this, simply put every target URLs you want to target in the first column of the sheet like so:

Then make your Google sheet public. Without it, TexAu won’t be able to access it.
