How Do You Copy Your Instagram Link on iPhone?

The Instagram profile link isn't visible anywhere on the iPhone app. You will not find it anywhere in the app's settings as well. But as you know your account name (or anyone else's), the Instagram profile link is easy to put together.

  1. Open the Instagram app on your iPhone and log in with your username and password if required.

  2. Tap on the Profile icon in the lower-right corner of the menu bar at the bottom.

  3. The username is prominently displayed above the profile photo on the profile page.

  4. The Instagram profile link is a simple combination of the Instagram site URL and the username. For instance, from the screenshot, the Instagram username is @indiescribe. So, the complete profile link will be https://www.instagram.com/indiescribe which would link to the profile from anywhere. 

Use the Instagram profile link in blog posts, email signatures, or anywhere else to expand your content's reach. Alternatively, you can generate QR codes from the Instagram app and allow it to be scannable from any third-party camera app. Scanning the unique QR code will open the Instagram account linked to it.
