I can't remember my password.

If you can't remember your password, you can reset it through email or Facebook.

Password reset

To send a password reset email:

  1. Tap Forgot your password? on the login screen.
  2. Tap Username or Email and enter your username or the email address you used to create your account.
  3. Tap Search in the top-right corner.
  4. Tap Send a Password Reset Email.
  5. Tap the link in the password reset email sent to you from Instagram to create a new password.

Reset through Facebook

This option is only available if you've previously linked your Instagram account to Facebook:

  1. Tap Forgot your password? on the login screen.
  2. Tap Username or Email and enter your username or the email address you used to create your account.
  3. Tap Search in the top-right corner.
  4. Tap Reset using Facebook.
  5. If you aren't already logged into Facebook, you'll be prompted to. Instagram will bring up the account most recently linked to your Facebook account and give you the option of creating a new password.

If you can't access the email you registered with, and you didn't link your Instagram account to Facebook, we're not able to give you access to this account.
