I know that there is not in the course, but I have had this question for months and I cannot find an answer.
is there any way to bruteforce attack on instagram account?

Basically you can try it but Instagram implements a protection by blocking the account after some failed attempts, so you can only try it like 5 times (I think) as a maximum and you’ll need to wait 24 hours to try it again. So the attack will be very very slow as you can only test 5 passwords per day.
You can make a disposable account and try it out.

thank you very much, since I am interested in the topic of bruteforce attacks, could you send me links or videos that better explain this type of attack?
Thank you goodbyeFebruary 16, 2021 at 6:03 pm #52111
As ethical hackers we need to develop researching skills, so maybe it’s a good chance to start improving such skills. Here is a link that ecplains about brute forcing attacks, but do your own research, don’t misunderstand me but it will help you a lot sharping your google-fu.
