If you use Instagram for your business or for professional endeavours, but also manage your own personal account with updates for friends and family, then this may be a shortcut that you already know about!

But bear with us, because knowing how to switch accounts on Instagram is a useful tool that all account holders should know about and use.

3 Steps to Switch to Another Instagram Account

  1. Head to your profile page
  2. Click on your username at the top of the profile screen
  3. This will open all of the accounts that you are currently logged into on that device and Instagram app. Simply click on the one that you want to switch to, and your Instagram profile will transform to that account.

Do you have an Instagram account that you can’t see listed? Then follow these next steps to link a new account to your log in.

How to Add More Accounts to Your Login

Switching accounts means that more than one account is connected to the Instagram app on a single device.

To add a new account, follow the steps above but click on the option to ‘Add Account’ at the bottom of your accounts list. This will invite you to either log into an existing account or create a new account.

Following the steps will allow you to continue growing that accounts list, making it easy to flick between them from your profile page.

Did You Know…

If you have ever noticed a red dot next to your username at the top of your profile page, then don’t ignore it – because it’s telling you something important!

This red dot is a quick and easy way of telling whether you have any notifications on your other accounts, before you even click to access them.

Once you open the account switching screen as explored in part one of this article, you will see exactly where those notifications are.

Once again, Instagram hits it out of the park by combining user convenience with a simple process to follow!
