How to place a link in your Instagram Bio

Instagram logo

To help your Instagram followers find you on other platforms and websites, you can put a link in your Instagram cinema. This can be any link of your choice and we’ll show you how to add it to your account.

The link you add to your Instagram profile appears just below your bio. Unlike URLs in your posts, this will be a clickable click. Unfortunately, you can only have one link at a time in your bio.
