FAQ

Can I scrape both Instagram and Threads profiles?

Yes. You can scrape both Threads users and Instagram profiles since they share the usernames. By using scraping techniques, you can extract data from Meta platforms simultaneously and get insights into user profiles and their activities on both Meta platforms. You may want to check out our Instagram scrapers as well.

Our Threads scrapers are ethical and do not extract any private user data, such as email addresses, gender, or location. They only extract what the user has chosen to share publicly. However, you should be aware that your results could contain personal data. You should not scrape personal data unless you have a legitimate reason to do so.

If you're unsure whether your reason is legitimate, consult your lawyers. You can also read our blog post on the legality of web scraping and ethical scraping.

Do I need proxies to scrape Meta Threads Profiles?

If you run the scraper on the Apify platform, for successful Instagram scraping you will need residential proxies which are included in Apify's monthly Starter plan ($49).
