To allow people to find your profile and follow you on Instagram, you will have to share your profile’s web link with them. It’s easy to get your Instagram profile link on both desktop and mobile, and we’ll show you how.
Your Instagram URL (web link) is Instagram’s domain name, a forward-slash, and then your username. So, for example, if your handle on the platform is “david,” your profile URL will be:
In Instagram on desktop, you can copy the link that takes you to your profile page. On mobile, though, you will have to note your username and manually add that username to the Instagram link.
If you are on a desktop, you are basically just a few clicks away from getting your Instagram profile link.
To start, open your web browser and launch the Instagram site. Sign in to your account on the site.
In Instagram’s top-right corner, click your profile icon. You will now copy the link of the “Profile” menu item.
If you are on Chrome, right-click “Profile” and choose “Copy Link Address.” If you are on Firefox or Edge, right-click the “Profile” link and choose “Copy Link.”
You have successfully copied the link to your Instagram profile. To use this link, put your cursor in any text field on your computer, right-click there, and choose “Paste” from the menu.
And that’s it. Share this link with whomever you want, and they can use the link to get to your profile on Instagram.
