Instagram just released an update to their app that now allows users access to multiple Instagram accounts on one device. Here’s how to set it up.
Many social media apps these days come with support for multiple accounts. It’s usually not the official apps, but most third-party social apps will come with this feature, so it’s certainly a surprise to see Instagram officially supporting multiple accounts.
In any case, it’s undoubted that many Instagram users are excited about this feature, and while most users may only have one Instagram account, there also other users who might also manage a company Instagram account or another personal account of some kind.
With that said, Instagram has made it super easy to switch between Instagram accounts if you have more than one, and the steps to set it all up is fairly easy, although the feature is sort of hidden.
Here’s how to add multiple Instagram accounts on iPhone and easily switch between them whenever you want.
Adding Another Instagram Account
The process for adding another Instagram account within the app is fairly simple, but isn’t the easiest to find. Simply follow these steps to make it happen:
Within the Instagram app on your iPhone, tap on the Profile icon tab in the lower-right corner.
From there, tap on the gear icon in the top-right corner.
Scroll all the way down and tap on Add Account.
On the next screen, simply login like you normally would if you were logged out, only this time enter in the username and password of the account that you want to add. You can also sign up for a new account on this screen.
Once you login, your new account will be added and will automatically switch to that new account so that you can begin using it right away.
Switching Between Instagram Accounts
Once you add more than one account, you can then switch between them easily.
To do this, simply go to your profile page and tap on your username at the top. A drop-down menu will appear where you can then select the Instagram account that you want to switch to.
Switching back is just a matter of going back to the Profile page, tapping on the username at the top and then selecting the other Instagram account.
You can also add another account from this drop-down menu by tapping on Add Account.
Deleting an Instagram Account
If you added another Instagram account to the app, but want to delete it, here’s how to do it.
Start off by switching to the account that you want to delete. From there, go the Profile page and then tap on the gear icon in the top-right corner.
From there, scroll all the way down to the bottom. You’ll be able to log out of that account. You can also log out of all your accounts at the same time if you want to get a fresh start.
