The link to the Instagram profile is a URL that, when accessed by a browser, leads the user to the social network profile. The Instagram application does not show the link in the profile, but it can be copied to be shared anywhere.

The URL or link of an Instagram profile has the same format: the link to the social network on the internet followed by the username (@) gives the account. Not case of @The USA Print, the link for the profile is instagram.com/tecnoblog.

No. When you create an Instagram account, you generate a URL link that can be accessed by anyone inside or outside the social network. For this reason, it is not possible to prevent anyone from copying the link to your profile.

You cannot prevent access to your Instagram profile through the link. A suggestion is to set your Instagram private so that only your approved followers view your content. The followers who access your page on the social network will only see your name, your profile photo and your biography.

Sim. You can change your Instagram username and also alter the link to your profile. Note that a new symbol (@) needs to be available for use to make this change.

Once you change your username, your symbol will be automatically changed within your social network. However, old links for your profile that are outside the platform will not be redirected to the new URL.
