Instagram introduced the ability earlier this week for users to add profile links and hashtags to their bios. Our guide will show you how this feature works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the profile button in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap “Edit Profile.”

Step 3: Tap the “Bio” field.

Adding a Profile Link

Step 1: Type the “@” symbol, followed by the name of the profile you’d like to link.

Step 2: Tap the correct profile in the list of search results that appears. Note: This step is only necessary if you’ve only typed a portion of the username and you want the app to fill in the rest. Also note, you can add multiple profile links to your bio.

Step 3: When you’re done editing your bio, tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen to save your changes.

Adding a Hashtag

Step 1: Type the “#” symbol, followed by the hashtag you wish to include in your bio. Note: A list of suggested hashtags will appear as you type, but you don’t have to select one.

Step 2: When you’re done editing your bio, tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen to save your changes.
