It doesn’t matter how well you know someone or how long you have known them for… sometimes, guessing their Instagram username is impossible.

Not least because a user might be managing an account that is completely unrelated to their name, focusing instead on a business that they run or a hobby that they indulge through Instagram.

If this is the case, then you might find yourself seeking alternative ways of finding their profile – for example, using their phone number.

Here’s how to do it.

5 Steps To Find An Account Via Phone Number

  1. Make sure that the person whose account you are searching for is saved in your device under the number that you want to search.
  2. On your profile page on Instagram, click on the menu button in the top right hand corner of the screen.
  3. Click on ‘Settings and Privacy’ then scroll down to ‘Follow and Invite Friends’
  4. At the bottom of the list, click on ‘Follow Contacts’
  5. Instagram will ask for permission to find your contacts. Approve the connection, and voila!

Instagram will now be able to follow any accounts that it finds which are linked with numbers saved in your device.

NOTE: In these same settings, you can invite friends to follow you via text or WhatsApp, making it super easy to share your own profile and accounts with friends outside of Instagram.

What better way to build your online community, using real life friendships and connections!
