It is a web-based tool that won’t require you to download and install before you can start using it.

It also comes with useful filters that you can use to make your targeting narrower. Some of those useful features include the following:

  • private or public Instagram accounts
  • should the users have a profile picture or not
  • business or personal accounts
  • based on the number of followers
  • the engagement on the user’s posts among others

The only downside to this tool is that it’s in a foreign language and you will need to use Google Chrome with the translator enabled. I haven’t had an issue with as since I started using it.

Let’s walk through a simple example so that you can see how it works. For our example, we’re going to extract 10,000 followers from Nike’s official Instagram account.

  1. Head over to iParser.Net, quickly register, login and select the option I’ve highlighted in orange: extract followers from account iparser
  2. Paste in Nike’s Instagram address (1) and then select the options you need (if any). I picked followers (2), not followings or posts, and settled on only usernames (3) and not user IDs. I also decided I’m going to scrape only accounts that NOT private (4) and have profile pictures (5). I’m also going to scrape only business accounts (6). See the image below iparser filters
  3. Now let’s scroll down and hit ‘Run‘ and see what happens. refresh scrape page

The filters I picked might make it take a few minutes to complete. When the process is completed you will be able to download a list of scrapped Instagram followers.
