Manually Find Contact Email Address by Username

Most of you will find the Instagram email address you were after but we cannot guarantee a 100% success rate. For that purpose, we want to give you an alternative way on how to find someone’s email address on Instagram with only their username. 

  • Open Instagram’s application
  • Click the top search bar and enter the username 
  • Check the Instagram bio for any emails
  • Or, look for an “Email” button (and click it)
  • If there is no email then the user is not sharing it publicly

Where you can find emails on Instagram.
Email address button on a business Instagram account

As you can see from the image above, there’s an email button on the profile. This means that the user has a so-called business Instagram account. Regular people opt-in for this type to access additional information about follower engagement. 

However, what they (probably) don’t know is that they also agree to make their contact information publicly available i.e. up for grabs. 

P.S. more than 200 million Instagram users have a business account. 

Find Instagram Email Address by Guessing

If there’s no publicly available email on an Instagram account try guessing the email. 

  1. Visit this free email validation tool
  2. Try adding IG username + Gmail “username@gmail.com
  3. If the email is not valid try the same with Yahoo, Outlook, Hotmail
  4. Once the email is “Deliverable” you can use that email on Instagram

How to Find Thousands of Emails by a List of Usernames?

Over the last 3 years, we’ve been scraping emails from Instagram (and pretty much any other public data) and have created the largest Instagram user database. 

Other than user emails we have 25 other data points on each contact (see free sample data here). So if you have a list of Instagram usernames we can easily check whether we have that contact in our database and give back their email address. 

How we check if we have email from a specific username or a list.

Using our API you get 1500 free credits i.e. 1500 free searches.

Want to find Instagram usernames from a customer email list?

Our API is primarily used for finding usernames based on a list of email addresses. 

Businesses (particularly eCommerce brands) have a large number of subscribers or customer lists and there is one very important reason they use the API:

Finding influencers among customers

Ecommerce brands have only two ways of advertising, one is Facebook Ads and the other is influencer marketing. The main problem with influencer marketing is finding the right influencer, with the right audience, and passion for your brand. 

So a lot of time and money is wasted on researching and contacting influencers. We wanted to cut down the process and help businesses instantly find their best influencers. 

By finding your customers on Instagram (and having their contact information) you can easily reach out to them and ask for a collaboration of any kind. 

  • Send them free products that they’ll share on social media
  • Offer discounts
  • Send them affiliate links
  • Or, negotiate a fixed price for promotion

Additionally, after you enrich your email list you can filter based on number of followers and find the most popular customers that can best spread the word for your brand.
