- Launch the Instagram app
- Click on the Instagram search icon at the bottom of the first interface
- A new interface will appear, tap on the search icon
- Enter the name of the user you’re looking for
- Users with the name and related names will appear. Tap on the user you’re looking for.
When you search for users or hashtags your searches are automatically saved, giving quick and easy access to search for them again without entering the name of the user or the hashtag.
