Instagram has globally rolled out a new way to quickly follow people you’ve met in real life, called Nametag. The feature works by showing your username on your phone in a format that allows it to be scanned by your just-to-join follower. This tag can also be customized with additional designs, colors, and stickers.

Nametag is an innovative customizable ID card that allows users to find your Instagram profile when it’s scanned. Your nametag is uniquely yours and makes it easier to add people and accounts you discover in person.
