    Hey Guys,

    I couldn't find it. So can you only scrape users by the name?

    Is it possible to scrape the ID for example "1638511986"

    Thanks!

    you don't have a unique number for each user. you have unique username.

    You're absolutely wrong here. User PKs are unique and stay the same during lifetime of an account. Usernames are temporary and are often changed. I see renames daily in huge quantities.

    OP, don't know about FL, but custom bots (at least mine) can do such things.

    The account 1638511986 is "_luxury_living". Average follower increase per day: 680.

    yeah right.
    I want to scrape from followliker and follow them with my private bot, because I had some problems on my 3rd account with followliker following. Never had a ban in 7 months and now I already got 2 within 1 week

    You need to post the request to '/api/v1/users/search/?npq=1&q=username' and parse a reply.
    If it is not working, make a request to 'instagram.com/username' and parse the HTML.

    Too many requests will get you banned. That's why I cache all requests to the DB not to abuse the service. Also I spread actions among the multitude of accounts.

    do it through a 3rd party and you will not get banned because you never even need to login.

    Post a complete HTTP(S) request/reply here. My bot works like a charm, as "instagram.com" domain is obviously still there.
