How To Find Someone On Instagram Without Their Username

Your Quick Answer:

Instagram has a huge number of users worldwide who are actively using this app, and it is not so easy to find a person on Instagram whose Instagram username is not known to you.

3. From Instagram Discover

‘Discover people’ also helps you to find anyone’s account without knowing their username. The process of reaching the ‘Discover people’ option is similar to the previous part we have just discussed.

After reaching the ‘Discover people’ list, you can see the section is divided into three sections: ‘Top Suggestions’, ‘Most Mutual Connections’, ‘New to Instagram’. The Instagram algorithm is created so that the person with mutual connections comes to the top of the list.

Not only the people with mutual connections but also the new users are on the list, so you can access their profiles to check whether the person is the same as the one you are looking for. The ‘New to Instagram’ will be removed after 30 days of creating the account.

4. Check likes on Close Friend’s Posts

The last method but not the least is checking like on a close friend’s posts. If you know the targeted person’s close friends and if they are on your Instagram friends list, then by checking the likes on his post, you can find out the person.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: To do that, first, open the close friend’s profile and go to the posts section.

Step 2: Select any of the posts and tap on the likes that the post has.

Step 3: The entire list of the people who like posts opens on the screen there, you can search for the person’s name, or if he does not have linked his name with Instagram, then you can search by checking the profile pictures (if the person has). 

It is also very helpful to reach the targeted person’s profile.
