Click your username in the top-right corner and select Edit Profile to edit your public bio (your name, username, biography and website). You'll need to go to the Instagram app on your mobile phone to edit your profile picture.

Some profile information isn't visible to anyone but you. This includes your email address, phone number and sex.

If your posts are public, anyone can interact with them. If you want to block specific people from liking or commenting on your posts, you can block them.

If your posts are private, only the people you've approved as followers will be able to like or comment on your photos and videos.
