Instagram has added a name tag feature as an identification card that allows people to find your profile when it is scanned. Every user’s name tag is unique and can be fully customised.
To check out the feature, you will have to go to your Instagram profile and hamburger menu button at the top.
Further, select ‘name tag’. You also share your name tag with friends through text messages and over other platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp.
For this, you will have to tap on the arrow at the top right of your name tag.
You can personalise your name tag by touching anywhere on the screen or tapping the button at the top to try other designs.
You can choose from different colours, emojis, or selfies with various stickers.
In order to scan another user’s name tag, you will either have to swipe right into the camera and hover over the name tag and hold down on your screen, or you can enter the camera by tapping ‘Scan a name tag’ when viewing your own.
