How do I share someone's post from feed to my Instagram story?

You can only share someone's post from Feed to your story if their account is public and they've allowed resharing of their posts.

To share someone's post from Feed to your story:

  1. Tap below the photo or video in Feed.
  2. Tap Add post to your story.
  3. Tap Send To.
  4. Tap Share next to Your Story, then tap Done.

Keep in mind that when you share someone's post to your story, anyone who views it can see who originally posted it and can view the original account.

If you have a public account, you can turn off the ability for others to re-share your posts:

  1. Tap instagram-user-profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap in the top right, then tap instagram-settingsSettings.
  3. Tap Privacy, then tap Story.
  4. Tap next to Allow Resharing to Stories.
