What is my Instagram URL? How to find it on desktop or mobile

Instagram is perhaps one of the most mobile-friendly social media platforms.

It was more or less designed to be used on mobile phones and devices, as evidenced by its superior mobile app capabilities and easier to navigate interface compared to the desktop version.

But because Instagram is so mobile-friendly, it doesn’t work like a traditional website, which sometimes makes it difficult to find your Instagram account URL.

Fortunately, the process isn’t as difficult as you might think.

How to find your Instagram URL on your computer

Finding your Instagram URL is quite easy if you use a traditional web browser to view Instagram.

1. Simply open your personal Instagram profile by clicking on your username in the top right corner of the page.

2. At the top of the page, in your browser’s address bar, is your profile URL. Hold “command” + “C” on your Mac or “Ctrl” + “C” on your PC keyboard to copy it to your computer. Hold “command” + “V” on your Mac or “Ctrl” + “V” on your PC keyboard to paste it somewhere.

How to find your Instagram URL on your mobile device

If you can’t open Instagram on a web browser and can only access it through the app, you can still find your URL by manually reconstructing it.

1. Open the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android and log in if needed.

2. Open your profile by tapping on your photo in the bottom right corner of the bottom menu bar.

3. Once you’ve opened your profile, note your Instagram username located at the top of the page.

4. Your Instagram URL is made up of two parts: the Instagram website address and your Instagram username, separated by slashes. For example, my Instagram username is @chrissysface, so the URL https://www.instagram.com/chrissysface/ would link to my profile.

It’s that simple. But note that some Instagram accounts are private and may not be visible even if you have their URL. Disabled Instagram accounts are also not visible.
