We all love Instagram! It is easy to use and gives us awesome images and videos that we sometimes want to share with our followers. And that’s the downside: they do not make it easy to regram.  If you want to repost someone’s else content it is going to take some effort.

Please note: According to Instagram’s Terms of Use you need to obtain permission from the relevant Instagram user before you may repost their content.

So, here are a few ways to repost on Instagram.

Use a Reposting App

1.  Download Repost for Instagram from your App or Play Store.

2.  Open your Instagram account and find the post you want to regram. Click on the three dots at the top right-hand side and select Copy Link.
