Copy Instagram Post URL

To copy the URL of an Instagram post, you need to go through these steps:

  • First, open the Instagram app.
  • Next, open the Instagram post whose URL you want to copy and save.
  • After the post is opened, you need to tap on the three dots icon. This will open a new menu from which you need to tap on the ‘copy link’ option.
  • The URL to this post will be copied to the clipboard.
  • To save the copied URL, go to a note-taking app you use and paste it there, or share it with a friend.


It is not always possible to copy and save the URLs by the steps mentioned above. To be able to copy and save the URLs for the Instagram posts, the account that posted the Instagram post should not be private, or you should be following that Instagram account. If these conditions are not met, you will not be able to copy and save the Instagram post URL using the Instagram app.
