Upload Your Instagram Data
Request your data directly from Instagram for faster reporting speeds and more consistent updates!
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!
Note: Request your Instagram Data Download from your Desktop Browser to obtain the correct file and format: followers.json (or connections.json)
Step 1: From your desktop browser, navigate to your "Settings" and select "Privacy and Security"
Step 2: Scroll to click on Data Download and enter your login details to open the request page.
Step 3: Enter your email address and the account password to Request Download.
Note: Make sure to select the JSON Format
Step 4: Instagram will email you in 1-48hrs. Follow the link in your email to download the .zip file
Note: Open the zip folder and locate the followers.json file, then simply drag and drop onto the platform!
You're done! Your handle will begin refreshing in the background while you get on with other work.
*Please note: Despite our best efforts, Surf Analytics will no longer be able to update Instagram data outside of uploaded reports. Recently, Instagram changed its API significantly, incapacitating our ability to capture data. Since then, we've been working to document and modify our processes. Our developers have reached the conclusion that this is no longer feasible.
