How can I add or edit my birthday to my Instagram account?

If you’ve connected your Facebook account and you want to update your birthday, you can edit it on Facebook to change it on Instagram. If you haven’t connected your Facebook account, you can add or edit your birthday directly on your Instagram profile.

To add or edit your birthday on your Instagram:

  1. Tap instagram-user-profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap Edit Profile.
  3. Tap Personal Information Settings.
  4. Tap Birthday and enter your date of birth or tap Update on Facebook.
Note that once you add your birthday to your profile, it can’t be removed. Also, your birthday won’t be shared with other people on Instagram.
