How to Switch Instagram Accounts Without Logging Out

February 9, 2016

A couple months ago I saw an article circulating through Facebook about a brand new update that Instagram just rolled out to Android users. However, it was still in the beta phase for iPhone users and only a few select people had access to this update. I didn’t want to jump the gun and get too excited over this update. But I’ll admit I spent a lot of time checking my settings on my IG account to see if I was given the beta update. I wasn’t. 🙁

I waited a few months to share the progress on this because I wanted to be sure everyone would have this update before sharing about how you can take advantage of this on your own. Since the update was released this Monday, I am THRILLED and so, so excited to be showing you all how you can update your own IG account!! Now you can easily switch from one IG account to another without having to log out. AH!

Let’s dive in!

  • Click on the little gear icon in the top right of your Instagram accounts page.
  • Scroll all the way to the very bottom of your options page and locate the Add Account option. (YAY!)

  • Click Add Account and log in to your second IG account. This will link your first account and your second account together!
  • Once you’re logged in to your second account it will ask you to verify the security of your account through email. Just click Send Confirmation.
