How do I add pronouns to my Instagram profile?
If you're not seeing the options below, make sure your app is updated to the latest version by visiting the Google Play Store or App Store. Please note that this feature isn't currently available to everyone.
When having a conversation, people use pronouns to refer to someone without using their name. You can add up to four pronouns to your Instagram profile to help others refer to you.
Pronouns you add will be displayed on your profile and won’t be used to refer to you elsewhere on Instagram.
To add pronouns to your profile
From the Instagram app for Android and iPhone:
  1. Tap profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap Edit profile below your profile information, then tap Pronouns.
  3. Start typing your pronouns and select them from the results below.
  4. Tap switch off or switch on next to Show to followers only to turn this setting on or off.
  5. Tap Done in the top right, then tap Done again to save your profile information.
If your pronoun doesn’t appear as an option, add it to your bio or let us know.
You can choose to make your pronouns visible only to people who follow you by turning on the Show to followers only setting. This setting will be on by default for accounts belonging to people who are under 18 based on the birthday listed on their profile. You can edit or remove your pronouns at any time.
If you experience harassment or bullying on Instagram, you can report abusive content. Keep in mind that your report is anonymous, except if you’re reporting an intellectual property infringement. The account you reported won’t see who reported them.
