Here’s our quick guide on how to share a profile with another person on Instagram from Android or iOS app.

The steps and screenshots used for this tutorial are from iPhone but there’s hardly any difference on Android. So, let’s jump to the procedure.

Share A Profile With Another Person On Instagram

1. Open the Instagram app and go the desired profile you wish to send. You can do so by tapping on their username that appears on top of their posts in your news feed.

Alternatively, tap on the search icon(Explore) at the bottom and type their name/username. When their name shows up in the drop-down list, tap on it to visit their profile.

2. After getting to the profile of that particular user tap on the 3 dots at the top right corner of the screen and select Share this Profile(iOS)/Send Profile as Message(Android).

3. Next, search the username of the person to whom you want to send the profile or directly select from the list by tapping on the circle or the username of the friend. It is possible to select multiple users.

4. After selecting the desired people, tap on Send at the bottom.

With this, the profile will be sent as a direct message to the selected users. The push notification, if enabled on the recipient’s phone will read: [yourusername] sent you a profile: [sent_profile_username]

In their message folder, they can open your conversation and tap on the message to directly visit the profile you sent above.

Similarly, you can share other profiles if desired with individual or multiple users.
