Want to hack your Instagram account because you forgot your password or someone else has access to your account and you can’t get in? In this comprehensive tutorial you will learn the best methods to hack an Instagram account including free apps.


This tutorial is only intended to help you get your account back which has been unlawfully stolen or is inaccessible. This is not intended to be a guide to hack other users’ Instagram accounts. This is a criminal offense and can result in a fine or imprisonment. You should be aware of this before unlawfully hacking an Instagram account.


TOP 5 methods

On the Internet, the interesting methods how to hack an Instagram are circulating. However, most of them are outdated or refer to scam and spam websites that do not work. You should definitely stay away from that. We will show you the best methods how to really hack an Instagram or which possibilities you have for it.


Phishing is one of the oldest methods to steal passwords and credentials of various kinds. Specifically, it involves misleading the user and stealing the password or the complete credentials. This usually works with fake websites and messages that look like the real thing.

For example, you can create a login page that looks exactly like the real Instagram login page to trick the user and make him enter the login data himself. This also works with fake apps and the like.

Fake Instagram Phishing Page
One of the most popular providers for building such pages is Z Shadow. Since their domain changes regularly, you should just search for it yourself via Google. Above is a screenshot of how real these pages look using Instagram as an example. There are also other social networks that can be replicated.

Spy Apps

Currently there are dozens of spy apps on the market that can monitor activity on various devices. However, the primary concern is security. Mostly, such applications are used by parents to see what pages their children are on. From simple screen recording to keystrokes, many things can be recorded here.

Another possibility which has been used by hackers for years for various hacks is brute forcing. This is a special method where the login page is tested with millions of potential passwords until the password is found. This list is called a wordlist and you can find countless of them on the Internet.

Below is a video tutorial of a hacker who demonstrates in 2 minutes how easy it is to get access to an Instagram account by bruteforcing. All you need is Kali Linux (security & penetration software), a word list and some script you can get from Github.

It is also possible to custom code it yourself with python.

Password Forgetting

An easy but usually not very practical way to get an Instagram user’s password is to simply click on the “Forgot password” button and try to recover the password via SMS. Within a few seconds, the recovery link is sent to the mobile device via SMS. So if you have access to your mobile device you can change your password within 1 minute.

Saved passwords

If you don’t have access to a smartphone, but to a notebook and PC, you will have an easier time. This is because most people have their passwords saved in the corresponding browser. So when you go to the Instagram login page you will immediately have the option to log in. Before you log in, click on Show Password and you will immediately see your password.



In our experience, few people really pay attention to security on the Internet and are careless with confidential data. Therefore, it is always made very easy for hackers to hack these accounts. In a few minutes, you could theoretically get access to different social media accounts.

Tool –  Autogramer

For all those who want to grow faster and more efficiently on Instagram should use an Instagram automation tool with proxy. For this, we recommend Autogramer. This is currently by far the best Instagram bot on the market. Sometimes you get the following functions:

  • Auto Like / Comment /
  • Follow / Unfollow
  • Auto DM / Respond
  • Post / Feed / Story
  • Planning (Scheduling)
  • Hashtag Generator
  • Advanced Analytics
    and much more.

It is therefore a complete AllinOne Instagram marketing and automation tool. Meanwhile, there’s even the option to add your own proxy at the click of a button, making the whole process incredibly secure. Comparatively, it is also one of the cheapest tools on the market with free trial.


In the end, there are many ways on how to get where you want to go. Hacking Instagram accounts is relatively easy if you know how to do it. Accordingly, very large accounts have often been hacked. Generally common hacking methods like phishing, bruteforcing etc. still work very well today. Therefore, you should try as much as possible to keep your own security as high as possible.
