Does Instagram free up usernames from inactive accounts?

This does happen, but the exact circumstances around when it happens are a bit of a mystery. Sometimes referred to as a 'name purge', Instagram does these at random periods and it's not exactly clear how inactive an account needs to be before the name becomes available. It's also not clear if the availability of account names is instant or rolled out over a period of several hours or days. SocialPlug has engaged in some research regarding this process, but at the moment, we're keeping what we know a secret to give our team an edge when acquiring usernames for our clients.

Instagram has never publicly explained what an 'inactive' account actually is, but if you yourself have a valuable username and you want to protect it, ensure that you log in frequently and engage with at least some pieces of content on the platform. It's likely that they utilize a combination of factors when deciding whether or not a name is suitable for release. If you're hoping to acquire an inactive name, fingers crossed that the owner never bothers to log in anymore!

Are there any 4 letter Instagram usernames available?

Four letter account names on Instagram are highly valuable – even those that don't make a specific word or acronym. SocialPlug has created a special program to check every single four-letter account name combination and there are none available. As with all usernames, it's possible that some may eventually be freed up in the future, but as things currently stand, it'll be almost impossible to find any genuine 4-letter account names on Instagram if you try to manually search for them.

Is there a particular four letter Instagram username that you'd like? SocialPlug has a bespoke service available where we will work hard to get you the handle of your dreams. Reach out to us for more information and a quote.

Can I get usernames that are already taken?

Under very specific circumstances, it's possible for you to acquire usernames on Instagram that have already been registered. For incredibly large and notable brands, Instagram may make your name available to you – especially if the original owner of the username isn't using the handle. However, this is an incredibly rare service, and more often than not, Instagram won't assist.

It's also possible for usernames to become available over the course of months and years. Instagram periodically releases names that you might want to own, so check back frequently for whatever it is that you want and you might one day find that it's on offer. Just remember: highly coveted names are checked regularly, so if you're serious about getting a name, be proactive!

SocialPlug offers a bespoke username acquisition service: in most instances, we're the best shot you have at getting the specific name that you desire. Reach out to our friendly team and we'll do whatever we can to assist with your Instagram username needs.
