If you have more than one Instagram account, you can now easily switch back and forth between them. Now, you won’t have to log out of one account and log in to another to switch. 

In this blog post, we’ll explain the easy way to switch between your Instagram accounts if you don’t already know how to. 

 

How to Switch Between Instagram Accounts

It isn’t unusual for users to have more than one account. A lot of times you’ll find out that people will have an Instagram for their personal use, then maybe one for their business, or another for their specified niche. Whether you fit into all of these or more, the process to switch from one account to another is easy. 

You’ll want to keep in mind that Instagram only allows you to add up to five accounts when you’re creating them.

You’ll need to take a few steps before you’re able to switch back and forth. The first thing you want to do is make sure you’re logged into your first account (obviously) before you add another. After you’re logged into the first, you can add a second. Here’s how:

  • Open the Instagram app. 
  • Go to your profile in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. 
  • Click on your username in the top left-hand corner of the screen where you’ll see a drop-down appear.
  • Click on “Log in or create new account.”
  • Select “Log into existing account” if you already have your account made or “Create new account” if you want to get one started.

Now that you have your accounts added, you’ll be able to switch back and forth between them. You can switch between them in two different ways. 

The first way is simple and follows the same process as you would for adding an account. Here’s how:

  • Open the Instagram app. 
  • Go to your profile in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. 
  • Click on your username in the top left-hand corner of the screen where you’ll see a drop-down appear.

Here is where the list of your accounts that you added will appear. To switch to a different account, just tap on the one you want to go into. Instagram will automatically direct you to that profile. 

If you want to change back to the account you were on before, just repeat that process again.

 

The second way is easier, but a little different. Here’s how to do it:

  • Open the Instagram app. 
  • Press and hold onto your profile icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

The same list of your accounts will appear. To switch to a different account, just tap on the one you want to go into. Instagram will automatically direct you to that profile. 

If you want to change back to the account you were on before, just repeat that process again.

 

How to Switch Between Instagram Accounts on Desktop

Again, if you want to switch between Instagram accounts, you’ll first have to make sure you’re logged into the ones you want to switch between. 

Switching between accounts on a desktop is pretty simple and almost follows the same process. Here’s how:

  • Open Instagram.com in your browser. 
  • Click your profile icon in the top right-hand corner and press “Log out.” 
  • Press “Sign up” to create a new account. 

Now that you have your account added in, you’ll be able to switch back and forth. 

 

When you want to switch to a different account, follow these steps:

  • Open Instagram.com in your browser. 
  • Log in if you aren’t already.
  • Click on your profile icon in the top right-hand corner. 
  • Click “Switch Accounts” and choose the account you want to switch to.

How to Remove Instagram Account

If you don’t want to have an account listed on your Instagram anymore, then you can just delete it so it won’t show up.
