Instagram Profile Scraper API

Instagram Scraper API lets you gather public data of an account from Instagram as structured JSON via our solid infrastructure. It is extremely easy to use and integrate into your own solution.

API Access Key & Authentication

After signing up for an account, each user will be assigned a unique API Access Key. This key will be used to authenticate with the API via REST and access any of the available endpoints.
If you are a current user of AvesAPI, obtain the API Key from your account page to access our API. If you are not a member of AvesAPI you can create your account to benefit from our service.
To authenticate with the API, simply append your API key to the API's base URL using the apikey parameter shown below.
https://api.avesapi.com/instagram/view-profile?apikey=YOUR_API_KEY
