find someones instagram on snapchat

Do you want to find someone’s Instagram from Snapchat? Well, we’ve got you covered.

You may want to find someone’s Instagram so you can see more about them and the pictures they post because Snapchat stories only last 24 hours and then they expire.

We will explain multiple different ways you can do this in this guide.

Let’s get right into this!

Search the user’s Snapchat username on Instagram

The first way you can find someone’s Instagram from Snapchat is by searching for their Snapchat username on Instagram.

It’s common for people to use the same username on different social media platforms. Or, at least the username may be similar, so it may appear.

In order to find the user’s Snapchat username, you need to go to their profile on Snapchat.

The steps to get to a user’s Snap profile will vary depending upon which page you are currently viewing on Snapchat.

If you have got their account on the Chat page on Snapchat, then you need to hold your finger on the chat you have with them, and a list of options will appear.

Then, you need to tap on “View Friendship” and you will get taken to their profile.

Now, you will get taken to their profile.

You will see their Snapchat name, and below that, you will see their username.

Alternatively, you can view their Snapchat story and tap on their Bitmoji in the top left.

This will take you to their Snapchat profile as well, where you can then see their username.

Now, you can search for the Snapchat username on Instagram and see if their account appears.

You can identify if it’s their account by their profile picture. It should look like them, or they may have some information in their bio which makes it clear that it’s them.

Also, you may find our guide explaining if Snapchat friend requests will expire helpful as well.

Google their Snapchat username

The second way you can try and find someone’s Instagram account is by googling their Snapchat username.

This is a good method to try because if the person you are looking for has their Snapchat in their Instagram bio, then it may appear. It’s quite common for people to put their other social media platforms in their bios.

So, as we explained in the last method, you first need to find the person’s Snapchat username. There are multiple ways you can do this.

Then, once you have their username, you can type it into the search on a search engine of your choice, and add “Snapchat” before or after it to help the search engine give you more precise results.

It could look like this:

Hopefully, the user will have put their Snapchat username in their bio and Google will find it. It will say Instagram in the search results if Google or the search engine you use is successful.

If it doesn’t work, then try another method!

Ask a mutual friend on Snapchat

Another way of finding someone’s Instagram is to ask your other friends to see if they already know it.

Quite often your other friends will already follow them or at least will know their username on Instagram.

You could ask them in a message, a call, or in real life if they know the user’s Instagram.

However, we understand that you may find it awkward, so you could just search your friend’s following and follower list on Instagram for the user’s Snapchat name.

In order to search through someone’s follower and their following list, you first need to open Instagram.

Then, you need to go to their profile. Tap on the magnifying glass in the bottom row of Instagram.

Now, you can search for their account and tap on it.

Once you are on their profile, you can tap on “Followers” or “Following” in order to see who they follow and who follows them.

At the top of each list is a search box in which you can type in the person’s Snapchat name, make sure it’s their name, not their username.

It’s important to note that because you are searching for someone’s name, your friend may follow other people with the same name, so it may take some time to check each profile to see if it’s the person you are looking for.

You can identify if it’s the user you are looking for their by profile picture and any information in their bio. Also, you can check their posts, if their account is public and not private.

Now, you may need to repeat this with your other friends or people you follow on Instagram that may follow the user you are looking for.

Just ask them for their Instagram username

The last method is to just send them a message on Snapchat and ask them for their Instagram username.

You may think it’s awkward, but in reality it’s a compliment because you want to see more of their content.

If you’re not sure what you should say, it could be something along the lines of “Hey! I really enjoy your stories, do you have an Instagram I could follow?”.

That’s just an example. You should ask them in a way which you think is best, and sounds genuine.
