Do you want to repost an Instagram story? then this article is for you

This article explains how you can repost Instagram stories in simple short methods



The majority of Instagram posts from public accounts can be shared for your followers to see as part of your Instagram story. The popularity of this method, which is the only official option to share a post created by someone else on Instagram, can be attributed to both its ease of use and the way it relates back to the original author.

  1. Open the Instagram app on your iOS or Android device and locate the Instagram post you want to share.

  2. Tap the paper airplane icon > Add post to your story.

    Note: If you don’t see Add post to your story, either the account isn’t public or they’ve disabled post resharing.

  3. The post now appears embedded in a new Instagram story. You can now add the usual gifs, text, and music.

  4. Tap Your Story to publish as a new Instagram story.


While it’s possible to share some Instagram stories made by others to your followers, it must meet some requirements:

  • The account must be public. You can’t share a story from a private Instagram account.
  • It must have Instagram story sharing enabled.
  • You need to be tagged in the story.

When you’re tagged in an Instagram story, you’ll receive a DM via Instagram Direct notifying you. If the account tagging you is public and allows sharing of their content, you should see a link in the message; to repost this story within a new story on your account, tap Add This to Your Story, and then proceed with the instructions from above.

On Instagram, there isn’t a built-in feature for reposting images or videos. You must download a third-party program to get around this restriction. Fortunately, there are several of these apps available for both iOS and Android, and most of them can be downloaded and used for free.

Download Repost for Instagram from Google Play if you have an Android device, or get Repost for Instagram from the App Store if you have an iOS device. Both apps are free and don’t require you to log in with your Instagram or Facebook account information.

The following instructions are for the Regrammer iOS app, but each step is practically identical to how you would use the Repost for the Instagram app on Android.

  1. Open the Regrammer app on your iOS device.

  2. A message asks you to give the app permission to access your device’s photos. Tap OK.

  3. The app asks you if you want to receive notifications. This is optional. Tap either Don’t Allow or Allow.

  4. You’re shown a welcome screen with instructions. Tap Skip.

  5. Open the Instagram app on the same device and find the post you want to repost.

  6. Tap the ellipsis in the top-right corner of the Instagram post.

  7. Tap Copy Link. The link to this post is copied to your device’s clipboard.

  8. Open Regrammer. The copied link should automatically appear in the search field within the app. If it doesn’t, tap the field, perform a long press, and tap Paste.

  9. Tap Preview.

    Note: A short video ad may play. Ignore this and wait for your post to load.

  10. Your repost won’t show the name of the original Instagram account from where you got the video or photo by default. To add this account name, tap any of the four square icons.

    Note: Tap Dark to place a black outline around the original poster’s name.

  11. When you’re ready, tap the blue share icon.

  12. Tap Repost on Instagram.

  13. The app asks for permission to switch to the Instagram app. Tap Open.

  14. Tap Feed > Next.

  15. Edit the photo or video as you usually would by adding a filter and changing its settings.

    Note: Because you’re reposting someone else’s content, it’s usually best not to change the way it looks too much. This is especially true when it comes to artwork or professional photography.

  16. Tap Next.

  17. Add the post description, hashtags, people tags, and location data as you would when making a regular Instagram post.

    Note: Instagram allows up to 30 hashtags in a post description. They can help people discover your post, so it’s a good idea to use at least a few.

  18. When you’re ready, tap Share to publish your post. It should now appear in your main Instagram account feed.
