Creating a Bio Site

A Bio Site is a hub where you can share all the links that define your online presence in a beautiful layout to match your style. Bio Sites work like a kind of online business card. You can create your Bio Site through the Unfold app.

We’re releasing this feature in waves. If you don’t see this option, the experience isn’t available for your account yet. To learn more, visit Unfold.com.

Get started on your Bio Site

To get started on your Bio Site:

  1. Tap Bio Sites on the Unfold home screen, then tap Start Creating.
  2. Tap the pencil icon to change your background color.
  3. Tap the eye icon to preview your Bio Site.
  4. Tap Edit Bio Site to customize your profile and add sections. By default, your Bio Site already has Socials and Links sections. Continue reading this guide for more details.

Each account can create one Bio Site. It’s not possible to create multiple Bio Sites on the same account.

Change the background color

To change the background color of your Bio Site, navigate to the Bio Sites tab and tap the pencil icon. Select from the available colors, then tap the back icon to save your changes.

On Android, you can choose from a preset selection of solid colors. If you're using an iOS device, you'll have three background color options:

  • Colors - Choose a preset solid or gradient color.
  • Picker (Unfold+ and Unfold for Brands only) - Click the slider to select a color, then tap a shade in the square above. Alternately, if you know the Hex value for the color you want, tap the value field to edit it.
  • Eyedrop (Unfold+ and Unfold for Brands only) - Pull a background color from an image or element on your screen.

Add your profile information

To add images and personal information to your Bio Site:

  1. While editing your Bio Site, tap the Profiles tab.
  2. Tap Profile photo to upload a profile picture from your device or Instagram, select an image from the Unsplash library, or take a new photo with your device’s camera.
  3. Tap Cover photo to upload a cover photo from your device or Instagram, select an image from the Unsplash library, or take a new photo with your device’s camera. We recommend resizing images to a minimum of 1200 px × 674px, as the selected image will be cropped to fit an aspect ratio of 16:9.
  4. Tap Your name to enter your name, then tap .
  5. Tap Add a description to enter a short biography or description of your work, then tap .

Add your social accounts

By default, your Bio Site contains a Socials section beneath your profile information. Use this section to display a row of icons linking to your social accounts. You can move or delete this section at any time.

To add a row of social icons:

  1. While editing your Bio Site, tap the Socials tab.
  2. Tap the icon for the social account you want to add to this section.
  3. Enter your username beside the icon, then tap .
  4. Repeat these steps for each social account you want to add, up to eight.
  5. To rearrange your social accounts, tap the pencil icon, then tap and hold = next to the social account you want to move to slide it up or down the list.
  6. To delete a social account, tap the pencil icon, then tap the trash can icon next to the social account you want to delete.

If you don’t see the icon for the social account you want to add or you want to add multiple accounts for a single social platform, add links to those accounts manually.

Add your links

Links you add in the Links section display as a vertical list in the body of your Bio Site. This is a great place to add links to your websites or direct links to social media profiles that don’t have a built-in icon in the Socials tab. This section appears beneath the Socials section by default, but you can move or delete it at any time.

To add links:

  1. While editing your Bio Site, tap the Links tab.
  2. In the Link name field, add the name you want to appear for the link, then tap .
  3. In the URL field, add the URL for the website you want to link to. The URL won’t be visible on your Bio Site.
  4. Tap the picture icon. Tap Camera roll to upload a thumbnail image from your device, select an image from the Unsplash library, or take a new photo with your device’s camera. If you're adding a link to a social account, tap Icon library instead to add a branded icon image. Tap .
  5. Repeat these steps for every link you want to add.
  6. To rearrange your links, tap the pencil icon, then tap and hold = next to the link you want to move to slide it up or down the list.
  7. To delete a link, tap the pencil icon, then tap the trash can icon next to the link you want to delete.

Add more sections to your Bio Site

You can further customize your Bio Site by adding more content sections:

  1. While editing your Bio Site, tap the + tab.
  2. Scroll down to reveal the Add Section header.
  3. Tap the section type you want to add.
  4. The new section automatically appears at the bottom of your Sections list.
  5. A new tab with the name of your added section appears at the top of the Bio Site editor. To edit the section, tap the associated tab. Tap .

Text Box sections

Add more written content to your Bio Site with a Text Box section. After you add a Text Box to your Bio Site:

  1. Tap the Text Box tab.
  2. Enter a Title and Description, then tap .

Support Me sections

Use a Support Me section to create a list of links to payment platforms where your audience can pay for your content, products, or services. After you add a Support Me section to your Bio Site:

  1. Tap the Support tab.
  2. Tap the icon for the payment platform you want to add to this section.
  3. Enter your account information, then tap ✓. Depending on the platform you selected, this could be a URL or your username.
  4. Repeat these steps for each payment platform you want to add.
  5. While editing the section, tap and hold = next to a payment platform icon to move it up or down the list, or tap the trash can icon to delete it.

If you don’t see the icon for the payment platform you want to add or you want to add multiple accounts for a single platform, add links to those accounts manually.

Rearrange and delete sections

To rearrange the sections in your Bio Site, tap the + tab, then tap and hold = next to the section you want to move. When you move a section, its associated tab in the Bio Site editor also moves to match the new section order.

You can delete a section by tapping the X next to the section name. If you delete a section, you can add it back at any time. Doing so only restores the section type, however, not the content in it. For example, if you delete the Socials section from your Bio Site, you delete all the social link information saved to that section. If you add the Socials section back, you'll need to complete all the steps under Add your social accounts again.

Publish your Bio Site

When you’ve finished your Bio Site, publish it and link to it from your website, social media platforms, or other places around the internet so your audience can find everything they need to know about you and your brand.

You need a Squarespace account to publish your Bio Site, but you can create and preview one without an account.

To publish your Bio Site:

  1. Tap Publish in the top-right corner.
  2. If you already have a Squarespace account, tap Log In. To create a Squarespace account, tap Sign Up.
  3. If you’re an Unfold+ or Unfold for Brands subscriber, enter a custom URL for your Bio Site (for example, bio.site/yourname). If you’re not a subscriber, your Bio Site URL will be randomly generated.
  4. Tap Publish.
  5. Your Bio Site is now live. Tap Copy Link to copy your Bio Site URL so you can share it or link to it elsewhere.

To make changes to your Bio Site after publishing, tap Edit Bio Site in the Bio Site tab.

Bio Site visibility

After publishing your Bio Site, you can tap the link icon to copy your Bio Site URL at any time. Below your URL, tap Visibility to change who can view your Bio Site:

  • Public - Make your Bio Site visible and searchable to anyone on the internet
  • Private - Make your Bio Site visible only to you
  • Delete - Delete your Bio Site. It’s not possible to undo this action, but you can always create another Bio Site from scratch.
