Table of Contents

Automatically like the pictures of people you're interested in.

Get noticed by the people you're interested in by liking their pictures.

Our Solution

You want to like specific Profiles' latest pictures:
Give us their instagram handles and how many of their latest pictures you want to like (up to 12).

You want to directly like Pictures:
Specify those pictures' URLs and we will like those for you.

It also works with a mix of both.

Once your input file has been completely liked, the tool will restart from zero and like the specified profiles' new pictures.

Before you start

Automation works better when done responsibly. For that purpose, it's better to follow those simple rules:

  • Rather than liking 100's of pics at once, prefer spacing those throughout the day.
  • 3 profiles or 5 posts per launch is a good pace.
  • Wait for 20 minutes between launches.

What will you need? ⚙️

  • Session cookie: Your session cookie from Instagram.
  • Spreadsheet URL: The link of a Google Spreadsheet with Instagram profile URLs or post URLs in it.
  • Number of lines per launch: The number of profiles or posts to process per launch.

(You already have all that? Click straight away on "Use this API")

Which steps to follow?

1. Create an account on Phantombuster.com 💻

If you haven't already, create a FREE account on Phantombuster. Our service will browse the web for you. It’s a website automator which runs in the cloud. Once done we'll follow up.

2. Use this API on your account.👌

Now that you're connected to Phantombuster, Click on the following button (it will open a new tab).

3. Click on Configure me!

You'll now see the 3 configuration dots blinking. Click on them.

4. Instagram authentication 🔑

Because the script will manipulate Instagram for you, it needs to be logged on your Instagram account. For that you just need to copy paste your session cookie in the script argument:

  • Using Chrome, go to your Instagram homepage and open the inspector
    → Right click anywhere on the page and select “Inspect”
    CMD+OPT+i on macOS
    or
    F12 or CTRL+MAJ+i on Windows

  • Locate the “Application” tab

  • Select “Cookies” > “http://www.instagram.com” on the left menu.

  • Locate the “sessionid” cookie.

  • Copy what’s under “Value” (Double click on it then Ctrl+C) and paste it into your API Configuration

// How to access your cookies with Firefox and Safari //

5. Add a Google Spreadsheet 📑

Below your session cookie you’ll find Spreadsheet URL.

Enter in the text field a link of a Google Spreadsheet with this same format (only column A is mandatory):

Your spreadsheet should contain a list of Instagram Profile URLs or Post URLs (one link per row).
You can specify the name of the column that contains the links. Simply enter the column name in the next text field.

Please make sure your file is publicly accessible!

You can also enter a single Instagram profile or post URL directly in the field.

Click on Launch & Enjoy!

It’s done! All that is left to do is to click on "launch" to try your script!

This will launch the bot and, if you didn't already change the spreadsheet URL, will collect the information of the Phantombuster team.

⚙️️Repetition setup ⚙️

Now that your API is ready, you should set up repetitive launches. That way, your scraping will be spread over days, weeks or even months. You can also specify the number of profiles to process per launch, or leave that field blank to process every profile from your list.

To do so, simply hit the “Settings” button to define when your API is launched:

Then, select a frequency:

Don't forget to click 💾 Save at the bottom of the page!

This API will output CSV and/or JSON containing the following fields:

  • profileUrl (Instagram profile URL)
  • postUrl (URL of the liked post)
