How to Add Special Characters to Your Instagram Bio

As Instagram users, we see a lot of posts and stories. Sometimes our Story Feed never ends. Yet especially when browsing through the Explore section we come across very exciting profiles. Not only we see profiles on the Explore section, but we can also find lots of interesting profiles on the Recommended section as well. By knowing how to add special characters to your Instagram Bio, you will make your profile look more noticeable.

Some of these profiles have a higher potential to be seen. This is mostly because of their text format if not the profile picture. Many of these profiles attract our attention because they use special characters in their bio. And we wonder how it is even possible to do that.

Here, we give you some tips for giving your Instagram Bio a more attractive look. To add special characters to your Instagram Bio there are some tips and tricks.

Add Special Characters to Your Instagram Bio

There are several ways to add special characters to your Instagram Bio. Again like before, you need to do it outside Instagram. Adding special characters allows your profile to be more recognizable.

You can add special characters in several ways. One way to do it is by using Word. Open a Word page and write your bio. Then click on ‘Insert’ and click on ‘Advanced Symbol.’ This way you can rove around the symbols that Word offers such as arrows or zodiac signs.

If you do not want to be limited by the special characters on Word you can use other websites such as Lingojam ( or Sprezz Keyboard. These websites will allow you to write with different fonts and icons that you cannot find on Instagram or Word.

You can add special characters to your ‘Name’ section to make it look interesting especially if you’re on the ‘Recommended’ section of others. However, keep in mind that the ‘Name’ section only allows you to enter 30 characters.

Adding Line Breaks to Your Bio

Normally, it is not possible to add line breaks to Instagram Bio because even if you click on return, Instagram does not let you change the line in the bio section. But you can do it outside Instagram.

All you have to do is writing your bio on another writing app such as Word. Write your bio on another app with line breaks and then copy the text. Paste the text on Instagram Bio, click on ‘Done’ and then you can have a bio with line breaks.

Using the Name Section

The name section in Instagram Bio is a place that can be used as keywords. When searching from the Explore section or searching via hashtags, results might come by the names of the profiles.

If you write a title on your Name section, you will be seen in the results when users search by that title. For example, if you write ‘nutritionist’ or ‘fit life’ your profile will come out in the results according to that. This might be uncommon to know but it is indeed very useful.
