Social Analyzer - API, CLI & Web App for analyzing & finding a person's profile across +800 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


  • I have been getting many public & private requests to add static websites' info to the detection db, this is being implemented and +400 detections should have that. If you have any -private module, and you are not able to see the static websites' info, download the latest version or email me for details

Standard localhost WEB APP url:



  • String & name analysis (Permutations and Combinations)
  • Find profile using multiple techniques (HTTPS library & Webdriver)
  • Multi layers detections (OCR, normal, advanced & special)
  • Metadata & Patterns extraction (Added from Qeeqbox osint project)
  • Force-directed Graph for Metadata (Needs ExtractPatterns)
  • 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 finding\getting 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

git clone
cd social-analyzer
pip3 install –r requirements.txt
python3 social-analyzer --username "johndoe" --metadata

Importing as object (python)

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

Linux, Windows, MacOS, Raspberry pi..

  • check this wiki for all possible installation methods
  • check this wiki for integrating social-analyzer with your OSINT tools, feeds, etc..

social-analyzer --h

Required Arguments:
  --username   E.g. johndoe, john_doe or johndoe9999

Optional Arguments:
  --websites   Website or websites separated by space E.g. youtube, tiktok or tumblr
  --mode       Analysis mode -> FindUserProfilesFast, slow -> FindUserProfilesSlow or special -> FindUserProfilesSpecial
  --output     Show the output in the following format: json -> json output for integration or pretty -> prettify the output
  --options    Show the following when a profile is found: link, rate, title or text
  --method     find -> show detected profiles, get -> show all profiles regardless detected or not, both -> combine find & get
  --filter     Filter detected profiles by good, maybe or bad, you can do combine them with comma (good,bad) or use all
  --profiles   Filter profiles by detected, unknown or failed, you can do combine them with comma (detected,failed) or use all
  --extract    Extract profiles, urls & patterns if possible
  --metadata   Extract metadata if possible (pypi QeeqBox OSINT)
  --trim       Trim long strings

Listing websites & detections:
  --list       List all available websites

  --headers    Headers as dict
  --logs_dir   Change logs directory
  --timeout    Change timeout between each request
  --silent     Disable output to screen

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 blocking\results issue


  • Adding the generic websites detections (These need some reviewing, but I will try to add them in 2021)


  • 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!
