Upload Your Instagram Data
Request your data directly from Instagram for faster reporting speeds and more consistent updates!
Note: To obtain your json files you must request your IG data from your desktop browser. You must upload all the following files to generate your report:
- followers.json (or connections.json)
Request your owned data from Instagram and upload it onto our platform- from there we'll enrich it, giving you the same sorting and filtering capabilities as before. The end result? A report that's generated up to 10x faster than before, with just as much accuracy!
Step 1: From your desktop browser, navigate to your "Settings"...
...and then "Privacy and Security".
Step 2: Scroll to click on Data Download and enter your login details to open the request page.
Step 3: Enter the email address where you want your data sent, enter the account password and then Request Download.
Step 4: Wait 1-48hrs for Instagram to email your data to the address you selected in a .zip file (check your junk!)
Step 5: Follow the link in your email to download the .zip file.
Note: Open the zip folder and locate the following files:
"followers.json (or) connections.json"
"profile_changes.json (or) personal_information.json"
Step 6: On the Trufan platform, find your handle, click "Refresh", then "upload your new data here" for the option to drag and drop the "connections" or "followers" file.
You're done! Your handle will begin refreshing in the background while you get on with other work. Have questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or click "Need More Help" at the top of the page!
