    Is there a way to redirect out of instagram to mobile browser automatically?

    When you click on a link, the IG internal browser opens. Unless you have an exploit I doubt it is possible.

    No, instagram uses a so-called "WebView" component. It's an isolated web environment in iOS and Android any app can use to add their own data to (i.e. cookies).
    You can compare it to it's own browser. Classify it as "Instagram browser"

    is there a way you could add

    if browser = instagram web view then display an error message

    forcing the user to copy the link to a web-browser?

    Most people probably wouldn't even bother though,

    Yeah I'm kind of doing that now but my CTR is terrible.

    Why do you need to have a different browser?

    Instagram internal browser doesn't redirect to the AppStore on iOS devices.
