Creepy v1.0 - Codename "diskbråck"

Long-awaited and long-overdue creepy v1.0 is finally here.


Creepy is a geolocation OSINT tool. Gathers geolocation related information from online sources, and allows for presentation on map, search filtering based on exact location and/or date, export in csv format or kml for further analysis in Google Maps.

What's new in this release ?

  • Creepy now uses Qt 4, via it's PyQt4 bindings for the user interface.
  • Analysis in based on projects, you can work with multiple targets simultaneously without having to re-analyze them.
  • Creepy is extensible via plugins for online services that might hold geolocation information. See :
  • Plugins for twitter, instagram and flickr are included in this release
  • Easy plugin configuration with wizards, where applicable
  • After analysis, the retrieved locations can be filtered based on the date that they were created or the proximity to a certain location
  • Google maps is used as a maps provider ( Street view included within Creepy ! )

What's fixed in this release ?

  • Twitter API v1.1 support
  • The user interface is more intuitive and allows for handling multiple targets simultaneously
  • Various minor bugs that were present in earlier versions

Creepy is tested on Windows 7 and installers are provided for both x86 and x86-64 systems
Creepy should run on Windows 8 too ( yet untested - unsupported )
YMMV on Windows XP and Vista


.deb files for debian based distributions will be shortly available. Great work by the maintainer of the debian package, go say thanks to Daniel ( @epsilon77 on twitter )
