Therefore, I have listed dedicated solutions on how to share an Instagram profile/story/video link on WhatsApp for beginners.
Part 1: How to Share an Instagram Profile on WhatsApp Directly?
You might already know that Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms with millions of accounts out there. There are times when you might wish to share someone’s Instagram profile with your WhatsApp contacts. Though, as of now, we can only share public Instagram profiles. If they have kept their profile private, then you can’t share it with anyone on WhatsApp.
To learn how to share an Instagram profile on WhatsApp, you can follow this basic drill.
Step 1. Firstly, you can just launch the Instagram app on your smartphone and find any profile you wish to share.
Step 2. Once you find the Instagram profile, tap on the three-dot icon from the top-right corner to get more options.
Step 3. Instagram will now display different options to report, block, and share the profile. From all the listed options, just tap on the “Copy Profile URL” button.
Step 4. Great! Once you have copied the Instagram link on the clipboard, you can launch WhatsApp and open any chat. You can long-tap on the typing space to get the “Paste” option.
Step 5. That’s it! This will just paste the profile link of Instagram on WhatsApp and generate its thumbnail. You can now send it to your WhatsApp contact easily.
In this way, you can easily learn how to share an Instagram account on WhatsApp contacts and groups.
Part 2: How to Share an Instagram Story on WhatsApp?

Let’s suppose you have posted something as your Instagram story. You can now directly share the Instagram story as your WhatsApp status.
Here are some basic steps that you can take to learn how to share an Instagram story on WhatsApp.
