Last year Instagram added some Snapchat-like nametags that could bring a friend to your profile just by pointing their Instagram app’s camera at the code. Now, after a short test period, it’s widely launching QR codes that work in a similar way but with one key difference.
Anyone that is trying to find your profile can look them up via any camera app capable of reading QR codes.
Whether you’re just trying to quickly exchange profiles with a new acquaintance or you’re a small business looking to add local followers, it’s a lot easier than hoping they spell your nickname correctly on the first couple of tries.
To find your QR code just look in your profile menu as shown above.
