I can't locate my account or don't know my username on Instagram.

If you aren't able to locate your account after entering your username:

  • Make sure that you're entering your username correctly, especially if it contains repeated characters.
  • Don't include the @ symbol when entering your username.

If you think your username was changed as a result of your account being compromised:

  • Check if you've received an email from Instagram notifying you that your account information was changed.
  • Ask a friend to visit your profile and take a screenshot of your current username.
