PhoneInfoga : Gather Identifying information from Phone Numbers


PhoneInfoga is an Advanced OSINT Reconnaissance Tool. Now you must be Wondering What is OSINT, Right ? OSINT or Open Source Intelligence refers to any Information That can Legally be Gathered from Free and Public Sources about an Individual or an Organization. To put it Simply you can obtain data about any individual or Organization which is publically available.

Intelligence agencies use OSINT to track events, equipment such as weapons systems, and people. These are the ‘targets of interest’ (ToIs). But hackers use OSINT to identify technical vulnerabilities as well as human targets for phishing and social engineering attacks.


While OSINT Techniques are often used by Malicious Hackers as Reconnaissance(Gathering Information) before they launch an illegal attack, for the most part the tools and techniques themselves are perfectly legal.
