Instagram on the Web
Discover Instagram on the Web
Click your username in the top-right corner and select Edit Profile to edit your public bio (your name, username, biography and website). You'll need to go to the Instagram app on your mobile phone to edit your profile picture.
Some profile information isn't visible to anyone but you. This includes your email address, phone number and sex.
When using Instagram on a web browser, tap Search at the top of the page and enter the name, hashtag or place you’re looking for. You’ll see a dropdown with the accounts, hashtags and places that best match your search.
Note: You can only search Instagram on the web when you’re logged in.
Privacy & Settings
If your posts are set to public, anyone will be able to see your profile by visiting instagram.com/[your username] on the web.
If your posts are set to private, your photos will be visible to people logged into Instagram who you've approved to follow you.
Learn more about adjusting your privacy settings. The privacy settings you set on mobile are the same as your privacy settings on the web.
If your posts are public, anyone can interact with them. If you want to block specific people from liking or commenting on your posts, you can block them.
If your posts are private, only the people you've approved as followers will be able to like or comment on your photos and videos.
If you're using Instagram on the web (ex: on a computer or web browser) and you see something that isn't following our Community Guidelines, you can either report the account of the person who posted it or report the post.
