Profil3r | OSINT Tool To Search People And Their Email

There are lots of open-source information available for free on the internet. This information can be about anyone like a person or an organization. Scrapping that information and gather it for analysis is known as OSINT (Open-source intelligence). These type of information gathering are usually done by security researchers, hackers, pen-testers, etc.

Searching people also come under information gathering. For finding people a hacker starts searching social networks in order to find information. But it is not possible for anyone to manually check for usernames on all the social media.

The tool we are going to talk about is Profi3r by Rog3rSm1th.
