GHunt is an OSINT suite to extract information from any Google Account using an email.

It also helps to Investigate Google Accounts to find their real name, photos, location, Youtube channel.

It can currently extract:

  • Activated Google services (YouTube, Photos, Maps, News360, Hangouts, etc.)
  • Possible YouTube channel

  • Public photos
  • Phone models
  • Phone firmwares

Latest update by developer

  • 02/10/2020 : Since few days ago, Google return a 404 when we try to access someone’s Google Photos public albums, we can only access it if we have a link of one of his albums.
    Either this is a bug and this will be fixed, either it’s a protection that we need to find how to bypass.
  • 03/10/2020 : Successfully bypassed.  (commit 01dc016)
    It requires the “Profile photos” album to be public (it is by default)


  • Docker

You can build the Docker image with:

docker build --build-arg UID=$(id -u ${USER}) --build-arg GID=$(id -g ${USER}) -t ghunt .

Any of the scripts can be invoked through:

docker run -v $(pwd)/resources:/usr/src/app/resources -ti ghunt
docker run -v $(pwd)/resources:/usr/src/app/resources -ti ghunt <email_address>

Manual installation

  • Make sure you have Python 3.6.1+ installed. (I developed it with Python 3.8.1)
  • These Python modules are required (we’ll install them later):

1. Chromedriver and Google Chrome

This project uses Selenium, so you’ll need to download chromedriver.

After you do that, put it in the GHunt folder. Make sure it’s called “chromedriver.exe” or “chromedriver”.
Be sure to have Google Chrome installed, and that Google Chrome and chromedriver have the same version.

2. Requirements

In the GHunt folder, run:

python -m pip install -r requirements.txt

Adapt the command to your operating system if needed.


For the first run and sometimes after, you’ll need to check the validity of your cookies.
To do this, run

If you don’t have cookies stored (ex: first launch), you will be asked for the 4 required cookies. If they are valid, it will generate the Authentication token and the Google Docs & Hangouts tokens.

Then, you can run the tool like this:

python [email protected]

I suggest you make an empty account just for this or use an account where you never login because depending on your browser/location, re-logging in into the Google Account used for the cookies can deauthorize them.

Where I find these 4 cookies ?

  1. Log in to
  2. After that, open the Dev Tools window and navigate to the Storage tab (Shift + F9 on Firefox) (It’s called “Application” on Chrome)
  3. If you don’t know how to open it, just right-click anywhere and click “Inspect Element”.
  4. Then you’ll find every cookie you need, including the 4 ones.

According to developer, this software is based on Sector’s research on Google IDs.
