    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?

    Hi!
    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 goodbye

    Hi!

    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.
