How do I update Instagram profile information like my name, username and email?

You may need to log into your account before you're able to update your profile information. Learn what you can do if you forgot your password, can't log into your account, or lost access to the email or phone number you signed up with. If you think your account has been hacked, learn more about what you should do.

To update your profile information, including your username and email address associated with your account:

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap Edit Profile.
  3. Type in your information and tap Done (iPhone), (Android) or Submit (computer and mobile browser).

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