Navigate to the profile that you want to download.
Step 2: Viewing Page Source

Type in "profilePage_" and hit Enter. This will help you locate the JSON data containing the profile information.
Step 4: Saving the JSON Data
Copy the entire section of the JSON data starting from "profilePage_" until you see the closing brace "}".
Open a text editor (like Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on Mac) and paste the copied JSON data.
Save the file with a ".json" extension, such as "profile.json".
Step 5: Extracting the Profile Info
Now, you can open the JSON file with a text editor or JSON viewer.
Inside the JSON data, you'll find information about the user, posts, followers, and more.
