About this bot

In short: This bot scrapes Instagram followings' names and URLs of a specified account.

⚠️ The Instagram following checker can only extract information from publicly open Instagram profiles. If you paste a private profile, the Instagram following list won't load. ⚠️

Have a look at the example output data file to get a better understanding of how the Instagram followings list export works.

How to export Instagram following list online?

  • Sign up on Botster
  • Head to the bot's start page
  • Chose any Instagram account which is publicly open
  • Copy the username (e.g. jaredleto, no @ symbol needed)
  • Paste the username into the bot's input form
  • Select the number of followings you'd like to scrape
  • Click the "Start this bot" button

You are done! The Instagram following list viewer and downloader is now working and will notify once it’s done.

Returned data

  • Input
  • Username
  • Following URL
  • PK
  • Full name
  • Is private (true / false)
  • Profile pic URL
  • Profile pic ID
  • Is verified (true / false)
  • Has anonymous profile picture (true / false)
  • Latest reel media

You can extract Instagram following list to Excel, JSON, or CSV formats.


Private profiles

Due to obvious reasons, Instagram does not allow scraping followings lists of private profiles. If you set the bot to extract somebody’s Instagram following list, private accounts will be out of reach.

Duplicate or incomplete data

When viewing your results you may notice that a number of accounts are missing. Unfortunately in many cases, Instagram's frontend returns duplicate data which we automatically remove. After a series of investigations, we can conclude that there's nothing we can do about it (sadly). So, in a nutshell:

  • Instagram returns duplicates
  • We remove those duplicates, hence the total number of scraped profiles decreases
  • There's nothing we can do about it
