How to Check Your Instagram Profile Type

Depending on which profile type you have, you may be limited to certain features through Planoly. If you're not sure, you can take the steps below to see which profile type you are.


Planoly Pro Tip: While Planoly does not support auto-posting to Personal Instagram accounts, we recommend linking an Instagram Business or Creator account. Both Business and Creator accounts are eligible for auto-posting. 

In order to activate auto-posting, you'll need to link with an Instagram Business or Creator account that is connected to a Facebook Business page and authenticate through Facebook.
