What happens if you click on an instagram url in bio?

  1. Straight to IG page in app

    So before I updated my iphone any url in the web field of the bio (e.g: instagram.com/main) would directly go to that IG account in app. (Just like when you click @Main in a comment or caption)

    NOW any link in bio goes into the instagram built in web browser which will show you the instagram account but as you're on their web browser you're not even logged in! There is an "open in app" button but it doesnt redirect you back to the app (which you're in already!) but takes you to the app store. : /

    Can people confirm if this is/isn't happening to them too please?

    This seriously effects cross account promotion via the bio link...

    Hey thanks for all your replies guys!

    This isn't a technical software/phone/network specific issue which only some can answer.

    Its about the official app EVERYONE uses.

    I even made a poll for you lazy typers!

    I genuinely need answers. Please advise...
