When you can change your Instagram username to a name you've used before
In most cases, you can change an Instagram username back to a previously used name if:
  • The username hasn't been taken by a new person on Instagram.
  • The username hasn't been recently removed from an active Instagram account that you don't own.
Keep in mind
  • If your account reaches a lot of people, your username change may need to be reviewed. If so, you'll be notified when we've completed a review. If not, your username will change immediately if available.
  • Your followers may be notified of your username change.
