Instagram is one of the best social media platforms to stay updated on what your friends and favorite celebrities are up to. And if you are a regular user of the platform, you must have come across captions, comments or a bio which you would have wanted to copy to share somewhere else or to save for yourself but because of the way app works, it does not let you copy anything. The developers of the app have disabled the native copying functionality in the app which would have left you disappointed.
This is the reason we will tell you how you can copy Instagram captions, comments and bios directly from your smartphone with ease. There are two methods and you can use any of them based on your preference. So, let's get started.
Using web browser:
The first method to copy any Instagram caption, comment or bio is to open the same in the web browser of your smartphone. To open any post in a web browser, you simply need to visit that particular post and tap the three dot icon. Now, tap Copy Link option to copy the post URL which you will need to paste into the web browser (we are using Google Chrome for this tutorial). Once you will do that, you will be able to copy the post, caption, and any of the comments like you copy any other thing on your smartphone. As for copying bios, all you need to do is to open that particular Instagram profile in the web browser and start copying.
Using a dedicated app:
The second method is to make use of a dedicated Android app which will make it possible for you to copy anything from any app including Instagram. We will talk about it step by step which you can read in detail below.
Step 1: Download and install Universal Copy on your Android device. Launch the app and tap the first option to enable the app. It will ask you for some accessibility settings permission which you need to grant to proceed.
Step 2: Open the Instagram app and visit the post/comment/bio you would like to copy. Tap Universal Copy notification from the notification bar to enter the Universal Copy mode on your device.
Step 3: Tap the text you are interested in and select Copy option at the top right corner to copy all the text. In case, you want to select only a particular portion, tap the edit icon at the top before tapping the copy icon.
This way, you can copy any Instagram caption, comment or bio from your smartphone within a matter of few seconds (or minutes depending on your internet connection). If you have any questions or doubts, feel free to ask them in the comments section below.
