PyRecon

A small program that searches for existence of a given username in various websites.

More websites can and will be added upon request.

Do note that there may be false positives. There is nothing I can do to prevent this as this script/program just checks if an account by that username exists in said websites. Future updates may gear towards eliminating such false positives but this is not guaranteed.

This project is educational purposes ONLY.

Written with Python 3.7.

Known Issues

  • Doing a search can take anywhere from a minute to two and a half minutes; depending on your internet speed. Will try to optimize this in future updates.
  • If a website is blocked in your country, you will not be able to do a search for that website and that will cause the script to crash/halt. To prevent this I suggest you run the script with either a proxy or a VPN.
  • False positives will exist.
