As the Internet platform grows, hackers or scammers also upgrade their tricks. So more and more people are complaining that someone hacked their accounts on social networks. However, advertising agencies are also tracing the IP addresses of Instagram users to contact customers and advertise products.
Use IP Grabber
Sites like Grabify or IP logger are developed to trace the IP address of the target. You need to trick the person into accessing a photo, a video, or a post.
Step 1: Identify the link of the website you want the target to click on. It can be a video or an Instagram post.
Step 2: I will for example use Instagram, go to that post or video and copy the link.
Step 3: Go to the Grabify website.
Step 4: Paste the copied Instagram URL in.
Step 5: You will have two options: “Create URL” and “Tracking Code”. Click “Create URL”.
Step 6: Grabify IP logger will transform your URL and configure it to get user information URL.
Step 7: You can also customize your generated link, depending on what you want. Click on the ‘more link icon’ to choose various domains like goo.gl, 7.ly, 5.gp, tiny.cc and others. Or else you can click “custom link maker selection” and choose the domain as “grabify link”.
Step 8: Go back to your Instagram account and inbox the target.
Step 9: During the chat, send and trick the target to click on the embedded video or post with the generated Grabify link.
Step 10: When the target clicks the link, you will find the target’s IP address.
Besides knowing the target IP address, you can also use the following methods to determine other details such as location, area code, phone or computer, and residence.
- Return to the Grabify homepage and click on the IP Track code option.
- Paste the IP address you got from Grabify and press enter. If you’re lucky, you’ll find the target’s information.
Using Command Prompt
Use above to create IP tracking link. But you won’t get anything unless someone clicks on it. There is a better way, you just need to make sure you are chatting online with the target.
Step 1: Chat with the person you want to follow.
Step 2: Close other running programs to ensure that only the ones you want appear.
Step 3: Press ‘Win + R’ key to open Run.
Step 4: Type ‘cmd’ and press Enter.
Step 5: Type the command ‘netstat-an’ and then you will see the IP address.
Step 6: Use IPlocation.net for tracking and you will find detailed IP address information of the target.
