How to Find an Instagram Email Address

Are you looking to find an Instagram email address?

Maybe you want to contact an influencer or a creator.

Or maybe you want to promote your product or service.

Either way, you can either send a direct message to the person or send them an email.

Instagram has a feature where you can add your email address and display it on your profile.

If you do this, others will be able to email you.

However, not many people have enabled it, so you’ll need to find other ways to contact them.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to find your or someone else’s Instagram email address.

How to find an Instagram email address

To find an Instagram email address, you need to look for an “Email” button on the person’s profile.

If their profile does not have an “Email” button, you need to Google the person to find their email address.

Alternatively, you can send them a direct message by tapping on “Message”.

If the person’s Instagram profile is set to private, tap on the three dots followed by “Send Message” to send them a message.

Some Instagram users have their personal blog or website in their bio.

If so, you need to visit the link(s) and check if there’s an email address.

You can also try finding the person’s LinkedIn profile on Google.

Some people will add their email address to their LinkedIn profile via “Contact info”.

Here are two ways to find an Instagram email address:

Method 1: Tap on “Email”

Find an Instagram Email Address

To find someone’s Instagram email address, you need to look for an “Email” button.

The “Email” button will be located next to the “Message” button.

However, it’ll only appear if the person added it to their profile.

After you’ve tapped on the “Email” button, you’ll see the person’s email address.

Instagram has a feature where you can add your contact information to your profile.

To do this, you need to have a business account.

When you have a business account, you’ll be able to add your contact information by navigating to your profile > edit profile > contact options > business email address.

Lastly, edit your profile again, tap on “Profile display”, and enable “Display contact info”.

As adding an “Email” button is difficult, not many people have done it.

If the person does not have an “Email” button on their profile, you need to check if they included their personal website in their bio.

If they did, visit their website and try finding their contact information there.

Method 2: Google the person

The second method is to Google the person and try to find their email address from one or more of the search results.

To do this, you need to use some of Google’s advanced search techniques (especially if the person is not that popular).

The first technique that you should try is using quotation marks.

Putting a word or a phrase inside quotation marks will tell Google to search for an exact match of it.

An example of what you should search for is “full name” + contact.

For example, if you want to find Gary Vee’s email address, search for “Gary Vee” + contact on Google.

If the person has a personal website with their contact information, it will be shown on the search results.

Another way is to search for the person’s LinkedIn profile.

To do so, search for “Gary Vee” + LinkedIn on Google.

Some people include their email addresses on their LinkedIn profiles.

You can check if someone included their email address by clicking on “Contact info” on their LinkedIn profile.

If they didn’t, you can send them a message on LinkedIn by clicking on “Message”.

How to find your Instagram email address

Find your Instagram email address
  1. Open the Instagram app.
  2. Tap on your profile picture on the bottom navigation bar to go to your Instagram profile.
  3. Tap on the menu icon on the top navigation bar.
  4. Select “Settings”.
  5. Select “Account”.
  6. Tap on “Personal information”.

After you’ve tapped on “Personal information”, you’ll be able to see your personal information.

This includes your email address, phone number, gender, and date of birth.

Your personal information will not be part of your public profile.

If you want to add your email address to your profile, you need to do it manually.


Finding someone’s Instagram email can be challenging especially if they didn’t add an “Email” button on their profile.

If you can’t find it, you can send a direct message instead.

To do so, visit the person’s Instagram profile and tap on “Message”.

If it’s a private account, tap on the three dots followed by “Message”.

You can also try sending a message or tagging the person on Twitter to get their attention.
