Are you trying to connect with someone on Instagram but only have their Snapchat handle? Look no further, because in this blog post we will be discussing the ins and outs of how to find someone’s Instagram from Snapchat.
First and foremost, let’s address the elephant in the room: why would you want to do this? Well, as we all know, Instagram and Snapchat are both wildly popular social media platforms that offer unique features and capabilities.
By connecting with someone on both platforms, you can get a well-rounded look at their online presence and potentially deepen your connection with them. Plus, who doesn’t love the thrill of the digital hunt?
Finding someone’s Instagram from Snapchat can be a tricky task. It’s not always obvious how to connect with someone on Instagram if you only have their Snapchat username.
But fear not, dear reader, for I am here to guide you through the process of tracking down that elusive Instagram profile.
Here are some proven ways to find someone’s Instagram from Snapchat:
1. Check their Snapchat Bio
First, let’s address the obvious: check their Snapchat bio. Many users will include a link to their Instagram account in their Snapchat bio for easy access, so this is a great place to start.
Visit their Snapchat profile, then scroll down to the bio area. If you’re fortunate, their Instagram username will be clearly visible. Tap on any links that contain the Instagram logo or the words “Instagram” to be taken directly to the user’s Instagram profile.
The user might not necessarily include a link but just a text to show their Instagram username. In this case, take note of the Instagram username, open your Instagram app and look it up in the search area.
The question is: “how sure can I be that I will find the specific person I’m looking for?” To be certain that you find the actual person, it is recommended that you enter their “username” since usernames are unique to each Instagram account.
This will usually show in the top results of the search page.
From there, you can open their IG profile, view their content and follow them, if you want to.
There are some, however, Snapchat accounts that have added a direct link to their Instagram, making it relatively easier to follow through by simply tapping on the link.
If the person you’re looking for doesn’t have a link to their Instagram account or does not mention it in their bio, don’t worry. There are still a few other ways you can find their Instagram account profile.
2. Search by their Snapchat Name or Username
This method is particularly useful if you already follow the person on Snapchat and want to find them on Instagram without having to ask for their IG username directly.
It can also be useful if you come across an Instagram post from someone who you think would be interesting to follow on Instagram, but you don’t have their Instagram username.
While this method is relatively straightforward, it’s important to keep in mind that not everyone who has an Instagram account also has an Instagram account. In these cases, searching for the person’s Snapchat username on Instagram will not yield any results.
Additionally, it’s worth noting that this method only works if the person uses the same username on both Snapchat and Instagram. If they use a different username on Instagram, searching for their Snapchat username on Instagram will not lead you to their Snapchat profile.
- First, start by finding the person’s Snapchat username. This can typically be found by visiting their profile on Snapchat and looking for the username in the URL or in the profile’s bio.
- Once you have taken note of the username, open up the Instagram app and use the search bar to search for the same username. If the person has an Instagram account, their profile should appear in the search results.
- From the results that appear, tap on the username that corresponds to the one you entered in the search bar. From here, you can explore their profile and see their Instagram posts, IG reels, photos and videos.
3. Use Google Search to Find their Instagram Handle
One of the easiest ways to find someone’s Instagram is to use a search engine like Google or Bing. Simply type in the person’s name (or username, if you know it) followed by “Instagram” and see what comes up.
You can use Google’s “site” search function to search and ensure that the results are coming from Instagram.
To do that, simply enter site:instagram.com “[name of Instagram account]” and search for it. Alternatively, you can [name of Instagram account] followed by site:instagram.com.
You may be able to find their profile, videos, or other information this way.
Click on the user’s Instagram profile link to access it. You can now subscribe to the account owner’s feed to see their material and any future posts. In fact, with this method, you can view someone’s Instagram profile without them knowing.
It’s a simple and effective way to connect with people on both platforms and discover new creators and content.
4. Find their Instagram Content on Snapchat
There are several Instagram content creators who add watermarks to their content, such as Instagram reels. In doing so, they often add their IG usernames as a watermark to prevent others from unauthorised usage of their content.
If the one whose Instagram you want to find has incorporated their username into these videos and uploaded them to Snapchat, you will evidently see them while watching their content on Snapchat.
By this, you can easily discover their Instagram username while on Snapchat.
Upon discovering their Instagram username, simply open your Instagram app and search for them. You’ll be able to find their profile on Instagram and follow them.
5. Ask for their Instagram Handle
One of the ways to find someone’s Instagram from Snapchat is to ask the person for their Instagram username.
First, open up your Snapchat app and go to the person’s profile by swiping left on their name in your friends list or by searching for them in the search bar.
Once you’re on their profile, tap on the “Add” button in the top right corner. This will bring up a menu with options to add them as a friend or to send them a message.
Next, tap on the “Send Message” option. This will open up a chat window where you can type out your message. In this case, you’ll want to ask the person for their Instagram username.
You can simply type something like, “Hey, what’s your Instagram username?” or “Do you have an Instagram account? Can I follow you?”
Once you’ve sent the message, all you need to do is wait for the person to respond with their Instagram username. Once they’ve given it to you, go to the Instagram app and search for their username in the search bar at the top of the screen. This will bring up their profile, and you can then tap on the “Follow” button to start following them on Instagram.
It’s important to note that not everyone will be willing to give out their Instagram username, so it’s always best to be polite and respectful when asking for it. Additionally, some people may have their Instagram account set to private, which means you’ll need to send them a follow request before they can accept it and you can see their posts.
