If you’re looking to add or change your phone number on Instagram, the process is actually quite simple. Here’s how to do it:

First, navigate to your Instagram profile page. If you don’t have a phone number set up, you’ll see a pop-up at the bottom of the screen prompting you to add your phone number. Simply click on the pop-up and it will take you to the page where you can enter your phone number.

If the pop-up doesn’t show up for you, you can also click on the “Edit Profile” button on your profile page. This will take you to the same page where you can enter your phone number.

Once you’re on the page where you can enter your phone number, simply type in your number and you’re done! Instagram may verify your number by calling or texting you, but once that’s done, your phone number will be updated on your profile.

It’s worth noting that although your phone number will be visible to Instagram for verification purposes, it won’t be visible to other users. They may be able to search for you using your phone number, but they won’t be able to see it on your profile.

That’s all there is to it! If you have any questions or thoughts, feel free to leave them in the comments below. And if you found this helpful, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up.
