Instagram: Here’s How to Send a Profile to Another User

The recipient will receive a direct message within the app

Have you ever found an Instagram profile you think a friend would like and wanted to share it with them? Our guide will show you how to do just that.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: Go to the profile you’d like to share. You can go to a user’s profile by tapping their username on one of their posts in your feed or by searching for them on the Explore tab.

Step 2: Tap the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “Share this Profile.”

Step 4: A list of your contacts will appear. Either scroll through the list and tap the circle next to a user’s name to select them as a recipient, or tap the Search bar to search for one or more recipients manually. Note: You can share a profile with up to 15 people at once. You can also share a profile with a user group you’ve previously created.

Step 5 (optional): Tap “Write a message…” to add a comment to your message.

Step 6: Tap “Send” to share the profile with the selected recipient(s). Each recipient will receive a link to the profile in an Instagram Direct message, along with your personal message, if you added one.
