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, we’re going to show you how you can switch to a different account without logging out.

Switching to Another Instagram Account on a Mobile Phone

Before this year, switching to another Instagram account required logging out of your current account and logging into another account. Thankfully, this is not the case anymore. Instagram now allows you to manage up to five different accounts on your mobile phone. To add a new account, you go your profile and click on your username at the top as shown in the following screenshot:

Tap that link, and you’ll be taken to an Instagram login screen. Enter the account’s login credentials, and you can now switch back and forth between Instagram accounts without having to log out and log back in. Instagram allows you to add up to five profiles on a mobile device.

You can’t switch to another Instagram account from a desktop computer, but if you use Hootsuite, you can see multiple Instagram streams at the same time.
