Although searching for people with their name and username is the most common method but not the most efficient one.

Finding Instagram accounts with usernames isn’t the most efficient as multiple people share the same name and related username. Therefore, finding someone through a username on Instagram becomes more time-consuming.

But don’t worry anymore.

Recently Instagram introduces the “Find People” feature that allows users to find people using phone numbers that most users are not aware of.

Now, if you forgot your friend’s Instagram Username, you might also search for them by their phone number. But keep in mind this feature will only work if your friends have linked their phone numbers to their profile.
