Add pronouns to your Instagram profile
Please note that this feature isn't currently available to everyone.
Using pronouns on your profile
People use pronouns as a way to refer to someone without using their name. When you add pronouns to your Instagram profile, it allows people to know which pronouns to use when they communicate with you.
You can add up to four pronouns to your 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.
Adding prounouns to your profile
To add, edit or remove pronouns on your Instagram profile:
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, then tap Pronouns.
  3. Enter your pronouns and select them from the results below. Note that you can remove any pronouns you've selected by tapping beside each pronoun chosen.
  4. Tap (Android) or Done (iPhone) in the top right.
  5. Tap Done (Android) or Done (iPhone) again to save your profile information.
If your pronouns don’t appear as an option, add them to your bio or let us know.
