Is there anyway to view Instagram photos without the API?

I believe that Instagram tracks what do you do through their API if I am not mistaken.

Is there any way you can view photos without use of the API/Javascript?

Do you mean you just want to see someone's public IG photos? If so, https://www.pixwox.com/ is your friend.

PixWox is just another IG web viewer that uses IG API/Javascript

I wanna find a way to view IG posts from a profile without APi/Javascript... if it's even possible lol.

https://instaloader.github.io/

that is a command line tool written in python that doesn't require api authentication. not sure if it uses api or not, but you dont need to have an account for something as simple as scraping photos.

Its worth a shot.

If anyone knows of any other ways, feel free to post them here. Thanks!

I think they shut down alot of those 3rd party viewing sites for insta, thanks to all the creeps.

Yeah they did, not that it’s any different than viewing IG itself other than you don’t need to log in, since all those web viewers use the IG API.

Looking more for programs that allow you to download the profiles pictures without using the IG API since it tracks you.

APIs are a great starting point, or if u can get a vulnerable vector to work on, but i would really stress u to think about working on the APIs that will make u understand the internal systems and checkpoints. Focus on metadata, they really have a lots of info.
