Instagram Finally Lets You Log Into Multiple Accounts


If you have two or more Instagram accounts — perhaps one for personal and one for business — Instagram has some great news for you this week: the company is finally rolling out multi-account support, which lets you log into multiple accounts in one app and quickly switch between them. This official announcement comes just weeks after some Android and iOS users began seeing the feature in their apps.

Once you download the latest version of the app with the feature enabled, you’ll be able to add additional accounts and switch between them with a couple simple taps.

“Go to your profile settings to add an additional account,” Instagram says. “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.”

There are step-by-step instructions over on the Instagram Help page. Here’s a short video that shows how easy it is to switch between accounts:

If you don’t see the update yet, just sit tight: the feature is a part of Instagram version 7.15, which is being pushed out to iOS and Android users this week.
