How to Find Your Instagram Profile and Post URLs

Ever want to share your amazing Instagram profile or a specific post with someone but weren’t sure how to grab the link? You’re not alone! While Instagram makes finding links for posts super easy, there’s a bit of a trick to getting your profile link directly in the app. This blog post will walk you through how to find both your Instagram profile link and the link to a specific post.

Finding Your Profile Link

There are two ways to find your Instagram profile link, depending on whether you’re on a desktop computer or using the mobile app.

1. Desktop: Head to and log in to your account. Click on your profile picture in the top right corner. You can then right-click on your username and choose “copy link address” (depending on your web browser) to copy the link to your clipboard.

2. Mobile App: Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t allow you to directly copy your profile link within the app. However, there’s a handy workaround! Here’s how to do it:

a. Open the Instagram app and tap on your profile picture in the bottom right corner.

b. Look at your username at the top of your profile page.

c. Your profile link follows the format “” followed by your username. For example, if your username is “foodlover,” your profile link would be “[invalid URL removed]”.

Finding a Post Link

Sharing a specific Instagram post is simple! Here’s how to find the link:

i. Open the Instagram app and navigate to the post you want to share.

ii. Tap the three dots (…) in the top right corner of the post.

iii. A menu will appear. Select “Copy Link“.

The link to the post is now copied to your clipboard and can be pasted wherever you’d like to share it!

Bonus Tip: Did you know you can also share your Instagram profile or post through a QR code? This can be a fun and easy way to share your content offline. To find your QR code, follow steps 1 and 2 for finding your profile link, then tap “QR Code” instead of “Copy Link“.

Now you’re all set to share your amazing Instagram content with the world!

Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) you might have:

3. Q: How can I share my Instagram post to Facebook or Twitter?

A: Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t allow direct sharing of posts to other social media platforms within the app. However, you can easily copy the link and paste it into a new post on Facebook or Twitter.

4. Q: My QR code isn’t working! What can I do?

A: If you’re having trouble with your QR code, try these steps:

  1. Restart the Instagram app.
  2. Make sure your device has a good internet connection.
  3. If you’re trying to scan the QR code with another device, ensure the other device’s camera is working properly.

If none of these solutions work, you may want to report the issue to Instagram through their Help Center.
