    I'd like to find some users but they changed their Instagram usernames.
    I still have their Instagram user ID numbers (something like 2394839401)
    Is there any way to find their usernames by their Instagram user ID numbers?
    I only have their user ID numbers and don't know their usernames.
    for example, @Instagram user ID is : 25025320 and if the username is changed, can I find it by user ID?

    What exactly do you mean? How are you getting that #?

    There is a website that you can search an user's ID number.

    it's pretty easy, there are different ways to do it, a simple one: login to iconosquare with an instagram account and insert the user ID after this: http://iconosquare.com/viewer.php#/user/

    i'm almost 100% sure and it would seem logical to me to be able to find a user by this ID even if he/she changed the username, because this number stays the same no matter what

    OP wants the direct opposite :)

    I already know the User Ids, I want to know their Instagram usernames.
    If I know their usernames, I can search their user ids.
    but when I only know their user ids, can i search their usernames?

    my bad, put a slash at the very end, so it should look exactly like this: http://iconosquare.com/viewer.php#/user/25025320/

    Why not just follow users by id, and insert list of id and go check your following list and see which accounts you followed.
