Gathering student information by name!
Hello guys, Hope everyone doing well. In this blog, I want to discuss gathering student information by name.
This blog is only for educational purposes. Please do not misuse this information. I’m not responsible if anything goes wrong.
I got this idea, because of one person that I met on telegram. She needs some information from me so, I asked for her email ID. She sent her official college email ID, which contains her PIN number.
Now, let's start, before starting we need to choose a target. In my case, my target is myself(Bhanuprathap Reddy) think like I don’t know any information about the target.
I just googled with my name, see the result below.
Now I went to all pages that were interesting to me. I only know his name and by his name I can say that, he’s from Andhra Pradesh or Telangana. So that I filtered based on that.
- Jnanabhumi is related to student scholarships, so I felt it’s an interesting one. Then I searched the keyword.
- Then I found a Github profile, I thought I might find some information.
- Then I opened, buymeacoffee website, that’s actually mine but anyway for strangers, it’s difficult to predict.
- Inside that website, I found the medium link.
- Then I went through his profile, then I found his LinkedIn. The very 1st link in google search and the link that I found here both are the same.
- So I went through his profile and previous companies that he’s worked on. based on my personal experience, gathering information from your main profile will cause problems. Instead of using the main profile, create a fake profile for these types of things.
- Then I found a very interesting one which is signalhire. It’s very useful for others but not for me🙄 It’s collected all of my information🤐
- Then I confirmed my target.
- Another interesting thing, I found the university or college pin number of the target.
- Now I know the name of the college and the pin number. Now I need to know only the password. The easy thing is many colleges keep default passwords and usernames.
- I found their college website, then I searched for the student login portal.
- Then I entered the username as pin number and password also same.
This information I can find from the by only name. Many people think it’s hard but you need to have patience.
Before doing this blog, I really don’t know that this much of my information is in public😪
Based on your response I’ll write my next blog on finding information by picture.
I’m repeating again, this blog is only for educational purposes. Please do not misuse this information.
