Inthis article we are going to see how we can hack any social media account using a tool called ShellPhish from GitHub. So you want to hack an Instagram account or Facebook account or any other social media account…..??. Well you have come to the right place. So lets get started, shall we 🙂

Before we get into any technical stuff,

What is ShellPhish ?

ShellPhish is a phishing tool written in bash by thelinuxchoiceIt offers a total of 18 phishing websites and one custom website which you can send to the target and after they login, bingo you have the creds. The good thing about this tool is that you don’t have to go through the hassle of setting up a hosting service or port forwarding. Yes, you guessed it right it does everything by itself, awesome right…… ? :0

It uses Ngrok for port forwarding and PHP server to host all the phishing websites.

What is Ngrok ?

Ngrok exposes local servers behind NATs and firewalls to the public internet over secure tunnels.

How it works ?

You download and run a program on your machine and provide it the port of a network service, usually a web server.

It connects to the ngrok cloud service which accepts traffic on a public address and relays that traffic through to the ngrok process running on your machine and then on to the local address you specified.

Legal disclaimer:

Usage of Shellphish for attacking targets without prior mutual consent is illegal. It’s the end user’s responsibility to obey all applicable local, state, and federal laws. Developers assume no liability and are not responsible for any misuse or damage caused by this program. Now let’s see how we can install this awesome tool in your Linux system.


We will use git to download this tool directly from GitHub or you can download the zip and install. Git is installed by default on most of the Linux machines if it’s not installed follow any tutorial online to know-how.

git clone

Now we have ShellPhish downloaded.

root@kali:~# git clone
Cloning into 'shellphish'...

remote: Counting objects: 100% (521/521), done.

Receiving objects: 100% (521/521), 13.13 MiB | 1.87 MiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (188/188), done.

Now let’s see what is inside

root@kali:~/shellphish# ls

we are pretty much done here although I am going to walk you through the steps until we get the creds ;). All we need is to run the script and we are good to go.

Before we run the script lets check the file with ls -la

root@kali:~/shellphish# ls -latotal 72
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 May 3 12:03 .
drwxr-xr-x 14 root root 4096 May 3 12:03 ..
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 May 3 12:03 .git
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 35265 May 3 12:03 LICENSE
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1433 May 3 12:03
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15297 May 3 12:03
drwxr-xr-x 21 root root 4096 May 3 12:03 sites

Uh-oh we don’t have the execute permissions lets give the script those executable permissions by

chmod +x

Now we can run the script with any of the commands down below

# ./ bash

If you don’t have Ngrok installed don’t worry this will install it for you.

[*] Starting php server...
[*] Starting ngrok server...
[*] Send this link to the Target:[*] Or using tinyurl:[*] Waiting IPs and Credentials, Press Ctrl + C to exit...

Now this will give two links

1) The one generated from the Ngrok server and
2) the one shortened

All you have to do now is to send any one of the links to the target and wait for them to log in.

Login attempt with ngrok link

It doesn’t login you when you press the login rather it redirects to the authentic Instagram page which I think is helpful to fool the target.

[*] Waiting Credentials and Next IP, Press Ctrl + C to exit...[*] Credentials Found!
[*] Account: Pyroot
[*] Password: Password123
[*] Saved: sites/instagram/saved.usernames.txt

Hurrah……..!!!! we have successfully hacked the victim without him/her knowing.
