How do I send a profile as a message using Instagram Direct?
This feature may be unavailable if you're located in Europe or messaging an account based in Europe to respect new messaging service rules. We're working to bring it back.
When you send a profile as a message, it will show the person's name, username and a preview of some of their photos. To send a profile as a message using Instagram Direct:
- Go to the profile you'd like to send as a message.
- Tap (iPhone) or (Android) in the top right, then select Share this Profile.
- Search for and select the person or group you'd like to send the profile to (up to 32 people).
- Tap Send.
Profiles sent using Instagram Direct are only visible to people who can already see them. If you send a private profile as a message, only people who follow the account will be able to see a preview of their photos.
