Curious how an Instagram reverse image search works? If you’re like many web users, you want to find out more details about someone you met on a social media site or a profile you saw on Instagram. Maybe you suspect your online crush is a catfish with a fake identity trying to trick you.
Or, you might want to investigate a user your significant other is following on Instagram. Whatever your reasons, if you’re going to conduct a reverse image search of an Instagram photo, we can help!
Instagram is one of the most popular photo-sharing and social media websites in the world. According to Hootsuite, 1 billion people use Instagram every month, which breaks down to millions of people every single day!
The great thing about a reverse image search is that all you need is a photograph. Thanks to a specialized proprietary algorithm, a Social Catfish reverse image search can scan all and any matches of a picture across the web.
How to Reverse Image Search an Instagram Image
If you want to find someone through a photograph, take a screenshot of the user’s Instagram picture or bio photo (if you have no other choice).
How to take a screenshot:
Edit the photograph (if necessary).
Use your phone or computer’s crop/editing abilities to eliminate any excess images captured in the background of the screenshot. All you want to search with is the original photograph. You should crop out any screen backgrounds, etc.
Go to SocialCatfish.com and navigate toward the search field in the center of the page and select “image” or use the search bar below:
Browse or upload the image(s) you want to search. Social Catfish will process the image and search for matches on other social media sites, public databases, websites, and across the web. Be patient, as the algorithm-based search is scouring millions upon millions of results and finding exact and similar matches to your image.
You will be shown results which are similar or identical to your Instagram search photo. You will find out who else is using the same photographs online and their details like name and links to other images, social media sites, or features. After you review the results, you can determine if you are satisfied or should try a username, name, email, or phone number search, all for the price of a cup of coffee!
People spend years being tricked by online catfish and lied to. Most of the time, they are fooled by people they thought they could trust. If someone on Instagram is giving you red flags, don’t wait, search now and stop wondering the truth.
