Instagram is one of the top 20 most visited sites in the world (source: Alexa). The photo sharing social media channel was acquired in 2012 by Facebook, the social media giant, for 1 billion dollars. Instagram is one of the channels that we use in our Social Media Marketing Services. If you have multiple Instagram accounts that you would like to manage, I’m going to show you how you can switch to a different account without logging out.

Adding Another Instagram Account on a Phone

Instagram allows you to manage up to five different accounts on your mobile phone. To add a new account, you tap the settings icon on the top left of your screen.

Instagram Profile Settings Button

Next, you scroll down to the bottom of the menu that shows up and tap the “Log Out of All Accounts” link.

Tap that link, and you’ll be taken to a screen with all of your Instagram accounts that you are managing. To add another account, tap the Switch Accounts link.

Instagram Account Management Screen

You will be taken a blank login screen where you can login with another Instagram account. Once you log in with the new account, you can switch to another profile that you manage without logging out. You can switch back and forth between Instagram accounts by tapping your Instagram handle at the top of your screen. In the screen recording below, you can see how I switch to another Instagram account.
