Who can see your Instagram profile?

Your name, bio and posts are visible to everyone by default as your profile is set to Public. If you want your posts (including those with hashtags) and profile information to only be available to your followers, you can set your profile to Private via Settings on the app or the web. Also, if you’re looking to expand your profile’s capabilities beyond that of a personal one, Instagram offers Creator and Business profiles. Read more about them in the article linked below.
