Instagram has become one of the most popular social platforms since its origins, and it has even become a source of income for many people and therefore a target of multiple threat actors.

Many users may already know, but it is possible to compromise a user account on this platform using Termux, the terminal emulator for Android system, as mentioned in the cybersecurity course of the International Institute of Cyber Security (IICS).

Below we will show you the appropriate way to use this hacking method.

To get started, you need to make sure you have installed a compatible version of Termux on your smartphone, as well as install stable packages. Then run the following commands.

apt-get update -y apt-get upgrade -y pkg install python -y pkg install python2 -y pkg install git -y pip install lolcat

To install the Instagram hacking tool, run the following commands:

git clone ls cd ighack ls bash setup bash

More information on how this tool works will be available in the IICS cybersecurity course. For the next step we will need an Internet connection. You can select any option by clicking on your keyboard. IMPORTANT: Do not delete any of the scripts included in the main files.

Now open a new session and type tor into it and then go back to the previous session and start the ig hack tool and start attacking the target user’s account. There is also a custom pass list option in the tool, so use the appropriate location to use the password list in the tool, for example, /sdcard/Download/pass.txt.

As in the previous example, you must use the location in a custom access list attack.
