Find Instagram account by phone number using the Suggestions page

The only way you can find someone on Instagram by phone number is through the Suggestions page.

You need to make sure you have that person’s phone number saved on your smartphone, then connect your contacts list to Instagram.

The app will then give you a list of all the people who registered on it using a phone number that is on your contacts list.

1. Save the phone number of the person you want to find to your contact list on your smartphone.

2. Open the Instagram app on the device on which you saved the phone number.

3. Go to your profile page on the bottom right corner.

4. Tap on the hamburger icon (three dashes stacked) at the top right-hand corner of the screen.

6. Click on Connect contacts.

7. Choose the ALLOW option to let the Instagram app access your contacts.

8. Instagram users suggested from your contact list will be marked as Suggested for you. Scroll through the list and find the person you are looking for.

If you’ve used this method in the past, you skip steps 5 and 6. At this point, you will see a list of contacts in the All suggestions screen.

The users on this page either follow you, are new to Instagram, share a mutual friend with you, are friends with you on Facebook, or have their number in your phone’s contact list.

It’s up to you to scroll through the list and find the person you are looking for.

If the person didn’t verify their Instagram account using the specific phone number you have on your contact list, you may not find them in the suggestions.

You’ll also not find them if they blocked you on Instagram.
