What can I do if I forgot my password?

If you can't remember your password, you can reset it using your email address, phone number or Facebook account. If you're not able to reset your password this way, you should be able to reset your password from the login screen:

On Android:

  1. Open the Instagram app.
  2. On the login screen, tap Get help signing in below Log In.
  3. Enter your information and follow the on-screen instructions.

On iPhone:

  1. Open the Instagram app.
  2. On the login screen, tap Forgot password?.
  3. Tap Username or Phone.
  4. Enter your email address, username or phone number, then tap Send Login Link.

On a mobile browser:

  1. From the mobile browser on your phone, go to www.instagram.com.
  2. Tap Forgot password? on the login screen.
  3. Enter your username or email.
  4. Tap Send Login Link.
