Social account user name sharing

Buyer wanted to talk through Instagram. Should i give him my IG user name?

NO. You are not allowed to give offsite contact information.
Why does this person need to talk on IG? Why can’t they just use the message system here?



He wants to take advantage of you somehow. Read the terms of service. Only talk to buyers on fiverr messaging system.


No. Absolutely not. Completely against the Fiverr terms of service:

  • To protect our users’ privacy, user identities are kept anonymous. Requesting or providing Email addresses, ■■■■■/IM usernames, telephone numbers or any other personal contact details to communicate outside of Fiverr in order to circumvent or abuse the Fiverr messaging system or Fiverr platform is not permitted.

It’s too late for understanding about this matter. Almost i shared. What should i do right now?

You asked if you should share your details outside of Fiverr…

Several people then respond “no” and helpfully take the trouble to explain why - and then you tell us you have already shared your details!

I’m sorry but you have breached the Fiverr terms of service which you sign up to when becoming a part of the Fiverr community.


So what did he want to talk to you about?

He wanted to design for his Instagram posts. His topic is Instagram related.


Hi, it has often happened to me that buyers asked me for my instagram profile or even my phone number to talk on whatsapp. I have obviously always refused, I’m registered on Fiverr to offer my service on this platform and therefore no one should have extra information about me.


I’m joining the chorus. Do not share your IG info with him at all. All discussions must occur using the Fiverr platform. You’re taking a LOT of risks by moving the conversation off of Fiverr.


If you’ve already given your Instagram profile then try to avoid this client on Instagram, :pensive:
If client’s ask contact information outside of fiverr then it’s not a good sign, :neutral_face: this type of client’s has a motive for doing this, literally they want free or cheap rate services and that’s why they asked to contact outside of fiverr. I got request many times from client to contact outside of fiverr and usually i ignored them and blocked them when necessary, i can’t trust this kind of people who can’t talk directly about their project and budget here at fiverr. Stay away from this kind of people and i’ve noticed newbies buyer are doing this, i didn’t meet any top level buyer who want contact information. Fiverr is really a good platform to do work comfortably :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I agree completely ! I Was in the same situation


In short, don’t. It’s too risky, There is no way you can give your personal information to the buyer.

Fiverr ​​never gives permission to give personal information to buyer. Sharing personal information can result you might get an account warning or your account may be disabled.

Hopefully you don’t want to have a negative impact on your account. Go ahead with success in fiverr :heartpulse:

No way. Either the buyer is new or he is not a buyer actually. On both ways you are going to suffer.

So better work inside Fiverr. Don’t share any personal details what so ever.

I have been working for Web Design and Graphic Design Services, I sometime need the login details of their accounts, and that is allowed only through the order page of Fiverr.

So don’t provide any details except from the order page while you need the details to process your assigned task.

Hope this helps.
