How to Customize Your Discord Profile Bio

You can now add a personal touch to your Discord profile by customizing your About Me section.

In the past, only Nitro users could access this feature, but now it's available to everyone. Here's a simple guide on how to add or change your Discord About Me Bio on both desktop and mobile.

How to Customize Your About Me Bio on Discord Web App

To customize your Discord profile on your desktop:

  2. Click on the cog icon in the bottom left corner next to your username to open the Discord User Settings.
  3. In the Settings menu, select the User Profile option on the left sidebar.
  4. Scroll down to find the About Me section. Here, you can add a brief description of yourself within the 190 character limit.
  5. Use the Emoji icon to add Discord emojis to your bio, including custom emojis.
  6. Additionally, you can use text formatting by adding two asterisks (*) before and after text to make it bold, or a single asterisk () before and after text to italicize it.
  7. Once you're done, click on the Save Changes button.

How to Customize Your About Me Bio on Discord Mobile App

To customize your Discord profile on the mobile app:

  1. Open the Discord mobile app and sign in to your account.
  2. Tap on the Profile icon on the bottom bar to access User Settings.
  3. Select the User Profile option on the User Settings page.

  7. Once you're finished, tap on the Save icon at the bottom right to save your changes.

Express Yourself on Discord

Adding a bio to your Discord profile allows you to provide more information about yourself and even promote your other social media accounts. Another way to express yourself is by using a custom status. Simply click on the profile icon at the bottom left and select the Custom status option. This allows you to type a message and set it as your status. The advantage of using a status is that you can choose to have it automatically removed after a set period of time.

Customizing your Discord profile bio is a great way to showcase your personality and connect with others on the platform. Whether you're a seasoned Discord user or new to the platform, take advantage of this feature to make your profile stand out.
