Search and Find Instagram Users by Bio [Free Tool]





Instagram bio search or finding users using keywords or text in their biography is not an option that’s available on the platform. But with our internal Instagram database of over 80 Million users, searching  Instagram using bio is just one simple query away.

As an Instagram data provider, our main product is emails from followers of specific Instagram accounts. Ecommerce businesses and marketing agencies would list brands, competitors, influencers, and we’d return with verified email lists from those fans.

Owning these targeted consumer & influencer email lists brings a lot of business opportunities. The most usual ones are creating custom audiences or sending cold emails…as long as you want.

And as our database grew, we noticed that we can be much more specific if we filter people based on keywords in their bio.


How to Use Our Instagram Bio Search Engine to Find Users

There are many Instagram bio search engines online, but they don’t offer anything that you cannot find yourself in the Google search results. On the other hand, we can filter based on the targeting you want, then extract and validate every email we find on those profiles. That’s kind of our specialty.

Our goal is to give brands a way to search Instagram users and influencers based on relevant keywords as part of a biography text. Using our Instagram bio search engine we can answer complex queries that brands have. One example would be: “List of soon-to-be moms, that live in the USA and has less than 1000 followers”. Fun fact, we have exactly 135 735 Instagram profiles (and emails) that match this description.



\Generally, people use their bio to describe the most important aspects of their lives in that limited space on every profile. Meaning bios are usually full of keywords!


Use the right keywords to search Instagram users by bios

Before adding keywords in our engine for bios search try to answer these questions that will help you better identify your ideal niche on Instagram.


1. Behavior and interest

What are some hobbies that would describe most of your customers? Maybe they like to jog, travel, swim, meditate, read, play chess or some instrument. Ask a couple of your loyal customers to list 3 hobbies and see the ones that recur the most.

If you own a violin store, you might want to email anyone with “violin-related” keywords in their social media biography.

Instagram bio search by keywords or text in their personal biography

Unlike popular advertising platforms such as Google and Facebook Ads, that only promise targeting by interest and behavior, we can actually deliver it!


2. Objects and surroundings

Another awesome way to find your potential customers is to think of specific objects and surroundings. Maybe you’re selling products that are complementary or connected to other objects.

For example, motorcyclists cannot drive without a helmet. If you’re selling motorcycle gear you might want to search for users with keywords like motorcyclistbikermotorcycles, or some specific model: Triumph Bonneville, Honda CB750, Kawasaki Z1.

Keywords in biography that lets you find relevant instagram users by their bio text.

One more thing, we can also filter based on the number of followers and easily provide Instagram influencer email lists (macro, micro, and nano) by keywords in bio.

Other Ways to Find Your Ideal Instagram Users

Other than getting emails from Instagram users based on keywords in their biography, there are two more ways for getting targeted emails from Instagram accounts.

1. Analyze Instagram Followers

We have the answer to the age-old question: How to Get Email Addresses From Your Instagram Followers

It’s the most popular option for our clients ie. getting emails from followers of specific Instagram accounts. Be it your competitors, some influencer, your own followers, or pretty much any Instagram account that your customers follow.

2. Analyze Instagram Hashtags

Another great way to search for your ideal audience on Instagram is by hashtags. Instagram allows you to search their platform based on keywords/hashtags, leaving you with a list of anyone that has ever used that hashtag. What we can do is scrape every profile that’s in the search results for that hashtag.

Here’s how the Instagram search results look when you search the hashtag #jewellery.

Other than finding users by bio, you can also get targeted instagram email lists by scraping hashtags.

As we can see from the image, there may be too many people under one hashtag. In this case, we further segment the audience extracted from a hashtag to only match your niche. We can do that by location, number of followers, Instagram category, gender, and even age.


How to Use Emails From Instagram Users

Here’s the tactic that many prominent marketers implement with their email lists scraped from Instagram for short and long term profits:

  • Add the email list in Facebook Business Manager (as custom audiences) and run ads only on people from that list.
  • Leave your ads until your audience is pre-warmed and you’re ready to start sending emails.
  • Start your cold email campaign to your warmed-up audience.
