Instagram User ID Finder

We can no longer operate this service as it was originally conceived

Due to changes in Instagram's API Terms of Service, I am no longer able to offer the Instagram User ID Finder as a service. I honestly didn't appreciate how popular this service was, until I got eMails from users pointing out that the service was no longer operational.

Thank you and take care!
