User Profile API

The User Profile API allows you to use a IG Scoped ID (IGSID) to retrieve user profile information that can be used to personalize the experience of people interacting with your business.

The following profile fields can be requested:

Field Name Description


The user's name


URL to the Profile picture. The URL will expire in a few days.

curl -X GET "<IGSID>?fields=name,profile_pic&access_token=<PAGE_ACCESS_TOKEN>"

If you are allowed to view the person's profile, the User Profile API will return a JSON response with the requested fields from the person's profile.
