Instagram doesn't allow you to link to websites from individual posts -- the app will display the URL in the caption, but it won't create a clickable hyperlink. However, you can still link to other pages, although in a limited way -- you can edit your personal information from your computer or mobile device to add a Web address to your bio.

  • While Instagram does not render hyperlinks in individual posts, some connected services do. For example, if you add a Web address to the caption, and then select the option to share your photo on Facebook, the post will appear on your Timeline with a clickable hyperlink.
