API, CLI & Web App for analyzing & finding a person's profile across 300+ social media websites (Detections are updated regularly)

Project description

Social-Analyzer - API, CLI & Web App for analyzing & finding a person’s profile across social media websites. It includes different string analysis and detection modules, you can choose which combination of modules to use during the investigation process.

The detection modules utilize a rating mechanism based on different detection techniques, which produces a rate value that starts from 0 to 100 (No-Maybe-Yes). This module intended to have less false positive, and it’s documented in this Wiki link

The analysis and public extracted information from this OSINT tool could help in investigating profiles related to suspicious or malicious activities such as cyberbullying, cybergrooming, cyberstalking, and spreading misinformation.

This project is “currently used by some law enforcement agencies in countries where resources are limited”.

Social Analyzer is in a league of its own and is a very impressive tool that I thoroughly recommend for Digital Investigators and OSINT practitioners - by Joseph Jones, Founder of Strategy Nord, Unita Insight and OS2INT.

Find Profile CLI (Fast)


  • String & name analysis (Permutations and Combinations)

  • Find profile using multiple techniques (HTTPS library & Webdriver)

  • Multi layers detections (OCR, normal, advanced & special)

  • Visualized profile information using Ixora (Metadata & Patterns)

  • Metadata & Patterns extraction (Added from Qeeqbox osint project)

  • Force-directed Graph for Metadata (Needs ExtractPatterns)

  • Search by top ranking, or by country (Alexa Ranking)

  • Profiles stats and static info (Category country)

  • Auto-flirtation to unnecessary output

  • Search engine lookup (Google API - optional)

  • Custom search queries (Google API & DuckDuckGo API - optional)

  • Profile screenshot, title, info and website description

  • Find name origins, name similarity & common words by language

  • Custom user-agent, proxy, timeout & implicit wait

  • Python CLI & NodeJS CLI (limited to FindUserProfilesFast option)

  • Grid option for faster checking (limited to docker-compose)

  • Dump logs to folder or terminal (prettified)

  • Adjust findinggetting profile workers (default 15)

  • Re-checking option for failed profiles

  • Filter profiles by good, maybe, and bad

  • Save the analysis as JSON file

  • Simplified web interface and CLI

Running Example (Simple)

pip3 install social-analyzer
python3 -m social-analyzer --username "johndoe" --metadata --top 100

Running Example (Custom)

#install social-analyzer
pip3 install social-analyzer

#specific websites
python3 -m social-analyzer --username "johndoe" --websites "youtube pinterest tumblr"

#specific websites with metadata and extraction
python3 -m social-analyzer --username "johndoe" --websites "youtube pinterest tumblr" --metadata --extract --trim

#all websites with metadata, extraction, filter all profiles with all status
python3 -m social-analyzer --username "johndoe" --websites "all" --metadata --extract --trim --filter "all" --profile "all"

#Screenshot detected profiles
python3 -m social-analyzer --username "johndoe" --websites "cart" --logs --screenshots

Running Example (as object)

from importlib import import_module
SocialAnalyzer = import_module("social-analyzer").SocialAnalyzer()
results = SocialAnalyzer.run_as_object(username="johndoe",silent=True)

Running Example (as object with specific websites, metadata and extraction)

from importlib import import_module
SocialAnalyzer = import_module("social-analyzer").SocialAnalyzer()
results = SocialAnalyzer.run_as_object(username="johndoe", websites="youtube pinterest tumblr", metadata=True, extract=True, silent=True)

Help (python3 -m social-analyzer –h)

Special Detections

Running Issues

  • Remember that existing profiles show status:good or rate:%100

  • Some websites return blocked or invalid <- this is the intended behavior

  • Use Proxy, VPN, TOR or anything similar for periodic suspicious-profiles checking

  • Do not mix FindUserProfilesFast, with FindUserProfilesSlow and ShowUserProfilesSlow

  • Change the user-agent to most updated one or increase the random time between requests

  • Use the slow mode (Not available in the CLIs) to avoid running into blockingresults issue


  • DuckDuckGo API, Google API, NodeJS, bootstrap, selectize, jQuery, Wikipedia, font-awesome, selenium-webdriver & tesseract.js

  • Let me know if I missed a reference or resource!


  • Make sure to download this tool from GitHub

  • This is a security project (Treat it as a security project)

  • If you want your website to be excluded from this project list, please reach out to me

  • This tool meant to be used locally not as a service (It does not have any type of Access Control)

  • For issues related to modules that end with -private or under the private group, reach out directly to me (do not open an issue on GitHub)
