Why do Facebook and Instagram share information?

Sharing insights and information with Facebook helps us connect you with others and build a better day-to-day experience for the Instagram community. For example, if you forget your Instagram password, you can log in with Facebook to recover your Instagram account. We can also let you know when a Facebook friend joins Instagram or suggest some of your Instagram contacts as People You May Know on Facebook.

These are only a few of the ways we work together, to learn more read our Privacy Policy. You can also find out more about how Instagram and Facebook share data for advertising purposes.
