Instagram will now users add their pronouns to their profiles. The app will now let you add up to four pronouns that will appear next to your username. Before now, users could only put pronouns in their profile bios.

Instagram users can choose to have their pronouns appear publicly on their profile or only to their followers and this feature will be on by default for users under the age of 18,

There’s a range of different pronouns that users can choose to add to their Instagram profile. There’s also an option to fill a form to add pronouns that are not available in the list of options that Instagram provides.

  1. Click ‘Edit Profile’
  2. Locate the Pronoun’s tab and type out the pronouns you want and Instagram will suggest pronouns from the list of options available. You can choose up to four pronouns.
  3. Toggle the option to show your pronouns only to your followers.
