How to Use Multiple Accounts With Instagram

How to Use Multiple Accounts With Instagram

Instagram users have long wished for a feature that lets them use multiple accounts in the app. If you have a personal Instagram account and one for your company or employer, managing both can be a real chore without support for multiple accounts. Or perhaps you have more than one account, and you use these for different topics. To manage these using the official Instagram app on your phone, you would have had to log out of one account and log in to the other each time you wanted to use it. Thankfully the company added support for this feature in a recent update on both Android and iPhone.

If you have more than one account and so far have been accessing them on different phones or maybe even using a third-party Instagram app to use both accounts simultaneously, you can breathe easy. The official app does the job just fine. Here’s what you need to do.

How to add additional Instagram accounts
We’re going to assume that you have the official Instagram app on your smartphone and that you are signed in with one of your accounts. The steps below will help you sign in with all of your accounts.

On iPhone
