    As many of you know, there is now an option for those in the U.S. to switch their Instagram account to a business profile.

    It allows you to link your Facebook profile, display your page type on your Instagram profile (e.g. Public Figure, Restaurant...), display a Contact button, view post analytics etc.

    I am outside of the U.S. so I do not have this option yet. I have tried to get around it by accessing Instagram using a VPN. It brings up the option to Switch to a Business Profile, but after linking my Facebook account, it does not display any of my Facebook pages to link.

    Has anyone had better luck than me?

    Thank you for sharing!

    I was just able to switch mine to a business profile by using a different VPN and uninstalling the Cydia tweak InstaBetter. It may have just been the tweak being incompatible with the business profile settings page, not my previous VPN that was causing the problem. Either way, I hope this helps someone here. And the business profile feature will be rolled out for everyone eventually, so there won't be much worry about setting it up later on!

    Opera VPN worked fine for me, no Jailbreak required, switched 3 accounts without problem.
