How to use multiple accounts with Instagram


Instagram users have long been wishing for a feature that would allow them to use multiple accounts in the app. If you have a personal Instagram account and one for your company or employer, managing both can be a real chore without the support of multiple accounts. Or perhaps you have more than one account, and you use them for different topics. To manage these using the official Instagram app on your phone, you’ll need to log out of one account and log in to another each time you want to use it. Thankfully, the company added support for this feature in a recent update on both Android and iPhone.

If you have more than one account and by now you are accessing them on different phones or maybe using both accounts simultaneously using a third party Instagram app, you can breathe easy Huh. The official app works fine. Here’s what you have to do.
