There are many reasons why you might want to get the URL for your Instagram page. Perhaps you’d like to link to a particular Instagram post on your website but aren’t sure how to do this.
You can easily access your Instagram profile URL and specific posts no matter what you need them for.
Here’s how to get your Instagram URL
However, you are not limited to just getting the Instagram account URL for your own account on social media, but you can also get it for any Instagram account – even if it is private. Those who own a private Instagram might not be surprised by this because just because you get the URL for a private profile does not mean you can access their posts. After all, that’s the whole point of a private Instagram.
Aside from that, you can also get an Instagram URL for an Instagram post – whether it’s your own or someone else’s.
In order to get the Instagram URL from a post, you need to access the post first. So, if an Instagram account is private, you cannot grab the URL from a post, since you cannot access the account. However, if you follow a private account, you’d expect to be able to access their posts and get the URLs found in posts shared by private accounts. However, if this were possible, then the whole point of having a private account would be defeated, so it’s not possible.
There are three options for URLs on Instagram:
- URL for an Instagram page
- URL for Instagram photo
- URL for Instagram video
Keep in mind: You won’t be able to get a URL for a photo or video if the account is private.
How to get someone’s Instagram URL
- Go to the profile you want the URL for. Tap the icon in the top-right corner of their profile.
- On Android and iPhone, the icon in the top-right corner has a different appearance. By tapping the icon, another menu will appear. There are six options. They are:
- Block User
- Report Inappropriate
- Copy Profile URL
- Turn On Post Notifications
- Share this profile
Click “Copy Profile URL”. The URL of the Instagram profile you are visiting will be copied to the clipboard.
How to get an Instagram URL from your desktop
It’s even easier to get an Instagram URL from the desktop than it is from the app since the URL is clearly visible in the search bar.
Go to the profile and then click on the URL that appears in your search bar to get the Instagram URL of the profile, whether it is public or private. Select “copy” when you are done.
Copy the Instagram URL of an Instagram account by going to the post for which you wish to get the URL, clicking the URL in the search bar, then pasting. In addition to posts shared by public accounts, you can also find the Instagram URL of private posts through the desktop. If you give the URL to an Instagram account that isn’t following the private account, they won’t be able to see it.
How can I copy my Instagram URL?
The link will be copied if you tap “Copy link”, whether it is the URL of an Instagram post or the URL of an Instagram profile.
You now have the Instagram URL copied, so you can paste it wherever you like.
Final words: As a Creator or a Business entity, you can also use your Instagram profile as a business card. As a website link, you can include a clickable link in your Instagram bio. Your profile will become more effective. The link created on the linktree site can be used to promote your blog or marketer profile page. If you copy the URL of your profile, you can share it as a business card.
