Are you interested in following your friends on Instagram using their phone number? In this discussion, I will be explaining how you can find an Instagram account using a mobile number or email address.
Instagram is one of the social network platforms that help to connect businesses and friends. However, it is easier to get good connections on Instagram with friends.
Every new Instagram account by default will have no followers. Instagram on its end would suggest profiles to follow. Most of the times, most of these suggestions are people you don’t know, and if you follow them, they are likely not to follow back.

Finding Instagram Profiles
The most popular through which we find profiles on Instagram is by entering their username. If you try to find a friend using their real name, there might be a hundred of people with that same name and going through that list for every friend you want to add will be time-consuming. Also, funny enough, your friend is likely not using the name for their Instagram profile.
What if you don’t have your friend’s username? As long as you have their contact, you can still get connected to your friends on Instagram.
Certainly, to every new Instagram account, the followers you get at the early days are mostly from your friends. This is why it is very important that you follow this discussion thoroughly.
Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have several methods to search for people, but we will concentrate on Instagram in this tutorial. This site can be used to find people who share identical interests with you, so they can be added, or for you to follow their updates.
Now, let’s proceed to the day’s business.

Finally, from this list, you can then choose to view your friends’ profile or follow them.
On the other hand, if none of your contacts is associated with an account, Instagram will return the No contacts available message after the syncing process.
However, it is very important to let you know that if you can’t find your friends using their contact but you are sure they have an Instagram account, they are likely to either be using a different contact for Instagram or have blocked you from adding them.
