How To Edit Your Instagram Profile

In my personal and business life, I use many social media platforms and one of the platforms I have started to use more often is Instagram. Many people use this platform to share what they or their business is up to. If you are new to this platform or never really did much with it before, then this article will teach you more about it. You can also learn more about this social site by checking out some other articles I have written about it.

The one thing I want to teach you in this article is how you can edit your profile information and picture on your account. It is always a good idea to know how to do this since we all want to make a good first impression. Time for you to pull out those devices and get this class started.

I will be showing you how to do this on your mobile app and on the website. We will be starting with the mobile app first.

Step 1: Find the App on your mobile device and tap it.


Step 2: Once you are on the app, look to the bottom right. Tap on your profile image.


Step 3: Here we are on your profile screen. From here you should see the Edit Profile button right under your bio. Tap it.

If you wish to change your profile image then from the edit screen, tap Change Profile Photo. This brings up a menu where you can add a New Profile Photo, Import from Facebook, or Remove Profile Photo altogether. This should get you all started on how to edit your profile. Remember, once you are all done editing, tap the checkmark at the top right of the screen to save.


That is how you do this on your app. Now it is time to show you how to do this on the website.
