Instagram Introduces #Nametag Feature to Attract Visitors

Instagram has introduced a new feature called, Nametag, to its mobile app. Nametag, allows people to find your Instagram profile when it’s scanned. Your nametag is uniquely yours and makes it quick and fun to add people and accounts you discover in person.

The Nametag option is under the menu on the top right of the screen on your Profile. From here you can customize your name tag.

To scan someone else’s tag, just go to the same menu and you will see the option to scan a name tag at the bottom. Just point the phone’s camera at a nametag and their account will show up on your phone.

Admittedly, this is only slightly easier than manually typing someone’s username on your phone to follow them but if you don’t want to do that or if someone has a particularly long and complicated handle, you could just now use the Nametag feature to add them.

How to create Nametag?

  1. Go to your profile, tap the button with three lines at the top, and select “Nametag.”
  2. You can personalize your nametag by touching anywhere on the screen or by tapping the button at the top to try other designs, such as colors, emojis and selfies with different stickers.
  3. To scan someone’s nametag, you can either swipe right into the camera, hover over the nametag and hold down on your screen, or enter the camera by tapping “Scan a nametag” when viewing your own.
  4. You can also share your nametag with friends through text messages and over other platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp. Just press the arrow at the top right of your nametag.
