Important: We do not store, sell or distribute your Instagram comments data. Comments are downloaded only in your browser using the Facebook API. Data should only be used for personal purposes. Be responsible for the privacy of your followers. We only support organic comments, not comments from a boost.

Instagram comments & users filters

You can use different kinds of filters to export only the data that you need. All filters are explained below.

Include comment replies

If you enable this option, comment replies will be included in the exported comments. By default, comment replies are excluded from the export of Instagram comments.

Filter duplicate users

If this filter is enabled, we will filter out multiple comments made by a single user. Only the first comment from that user will be included in the export. A user is defined by a unique user ID obtained from Instagram.

Filter comments by mentions / tagged friends

If you select this option, a single comment must have a minimum number of mentions / tagged friends before it is included in the export. You can choose to include up to 10 tagged friends in an Instagram comment.

Filter comments by a specific text

If you enable this filter, an additional text field will appear where you can enter specific text, hashtags, or answers. A comment must exactly match this entered text to be included in the export. If you have entered multiple words, they should all appear within a single comment made by the user.

Filter comments by date

When you enable this filter, two additional fields will appear, allowing you to input a start and end date. To be included in the export, comments must fall within the specified start and end date.

You can only export Instagram comments of your own Instagram business or creator account. We don't have permission to get Instagram comments from your personal account or a public business or creator account that you don't own.

Currently, our Instagram Export tool is able to support Instagram Collab Posts only for users who are the original creators of the post. This is primarily due to the restrictions imposed by the Instagram API, which allows only the creators to access Collab Post and retrieve the comments from it. If you are a collaborator and not the creator, our tool will be unable to fetch comments from Collab Posts.

The Instagram Export Comments tool needs read permissions to get posts and comments of your Instagram account. Without those permissions, we can't get your media and comments on your Instagram account. We don't have permission to publish anything on your behalf.

You need to log in with your Facebook profile that is admin of the Facebook page that is connected with the Instagram account. This is the only way Instagram is providing data to apps via their API.
