How to center-align text in your profile bio on Instagram

Check out this simple little trick that lets you center your Instagram profile bio text and make it stand out from everyone else.

Instagram bio text aligned in center

Instagram users can add a short bio to their profile to tell the world a little bit about them, but all text put into the bio text field gets left-aligned in the Instagram app by default.

If you’re like many others frantically attempting to find a way to center your Instagram Bio, then we have you covered.

How to center your bio text in the Instagram app

1) Launch the Instagram app on your iPhone and tap the Profile tab from the bottom right.

2) Tap the Edit profile button from the top.

3) Tap inside the Bio text field to expose your keyboard and enter text-editing mode.

4) Copy all the spaces contained within the brackets below (excluding the brackets themselves):


5) Begin pasting the spaces you just copied in front of every line of text in your bio, as seen in the screenshots below, and tap Done.

6) By now, the text starts to look organized in the editor. Go back to your profile page, and it should look centered.

But if it looks like a disaster, you must add or remove additional spaces as necessary. The spacing adjustment needed varies from person to person, depending on the text you’ve put in your bio.

If you added adequate spacing before each line, then your Instagram profile should display a centered bio. If you think it needs adjustment, just go back in and play with the spacing in your bio some more; it comes down to trial and error.

Note: Although the spacing might look wonky in the bio’s text field, try your best not to let your O.C.D. get to you. It’s what appears on your profile that counts.

It’s all about aesthetics!

Centering your bio is solely a cosmetic effect that can make your Instagram profile seem spiffier, but it’s entirely optional to do so. While it can be tricky to get the spacing just right, it only takes about 5 minutes of your time to get the result you see above.

Notably, the effect may or may not look good across all of your devices because of the way Instagram formats its app for different screen sizes. Unfortunately, it is what it is, but you can still enjoy the centered Bio on your own device after taking these steps.
