Instagram QR Codes

Instagram is a photo sharing application launched in October 2010 that allows users to share images and videos publicly or privately with their followers.

Due its simplicity and ease of use Instagram is now one of the most popular social media platforms with many businesses now using it as an integral part of marketing their products and services to current and potential customers.

Displaying a QR code linked to your Instagram profile page in your printed marketing materials is a quick and easy way to gain more followers and engage with customers.

How To Create Instagram QR Codes

Fully functional non-expiring Instagram QR codes can be created for free, along with 23 other QR code data types, with no sign-up or registration required.

  1. First, go to https://www.qrstuff.com/?type=instagram and have the “Instagram” data type pre-selected from the Data Type section.                   
  2. In the Content Section, enter the Instagram username of the account you want displayed when your QR code is scanned. To find the username, go to your Instagram profile and click “Edit Profile” above the photo gallery. On the Edit Profile page, the username is shown below the account name (don’t include the @ symbol).                                
  3. At this point, you can now click the “Download QR Code” button from the QR Code Preview section.

Make It A Bit Fancy

While free users can generate QR codes for website URLs, paid subscribers can enjoy more privileges other than being able to generate QR codes. They have the option to customize their QR code by changing the colors of their QR code’s dots and corners. They can even insert a relevant image in the center. Aside from that, they can modify the size & resolution, file type, and error correction.

It’s just easy to customize the QR codes once you’re a paid subscriber. Just follow the steps discussed above and click the “Style” section before downloading the QR code. From that section, you can turn your plain QR code to an appealing and distinctive one just like the one above.

Scanning Your Instagram QR Code

As a special built-in feature, when one of our Instagram QR codes is scanned on an Android device, it will automatically attempt to identify whether the Instagram app has been installed on the device and, if installed, the Instagram link will be opened in the Instagram app.

For iPhones, the user is asked whether they wish to open Instagram in the browser on their phone, or in the Instagram app (if the app is installed on their phone).
