Instagram Warrant Returns in Magnet AXIOM

AXIOM Cloud supports warrant returns from a variety of providers including Instagram. Instagram warrant returns can contain a wealth of data and are available in two formats; namely .pdf and .zip. AXIOM can process warrant returns from Instagram in the .zip format. According to Instagram, the content of the records in both the PDF file format and the .zip file are the same. If you would like to review the results in AXIOM, ensure you have the .zip file available.

So, what content will you find when you process an Instagram return? You will be able to see artifacts of Photos, Direct Shares, and Account Actions. Direct Shares includes chat history that can be viewed in a conversation that includes pictures shared inline.
