Some time last week Instagram announced account switching to its platform. The update included an option to add up five accounts that a user could use without logging out. This guide will help you add an account to your app if you’re on iOS without any real difference if you’re on Android.
(Note: you should also have a current version of Instagram to use this feature)
According to Instagram, the feature will be available as from version 7.15 on Android and iOS as from this week. You can read the whole announcement here. I hadn’t yet verified yet how many accounts you can add, but I’ll add an update in due course.
Starting this week, you can quickly and easily switch between multiple accounts on Instagram!
Go to your profile in the settings (as shown below). From there, tap your username at the top of your profile to switch between accounts. Once you have multiple accounts added, you’ll see your profile photo appear in places throughout the app so you can always tell which one you’re using at the moment.
So, if you are on iOS and you have version 7.15 or later, you can do the following to add that second Instagram account.
Rush to your profile.
Tap the Settings icon at the top of the page.
Scroll down and tap the Add Account option.
Thereafter you can then add your account, just as you usually sign in to your Instagram account. Remember you can add up to five accounts, meaning if you want to add the whole lot of your friends and family you can.
I hope this has been of help. I’m sure it will prove very helpful if you manage a lot pages or if you’re one of those Social Media managers working for a company and such.
