Finally – Switching between Instagram accounts is now possible

At last.  The moment has arrived.  It is now possible to switch between Instagram accounts without having to completely log off from one account and log in to another.

Instagram have this week announced, after testing on both Android and iOS in recent months, that you can maintain up to five accounts on the same device.

Here’s how …

Go to Settings in the to right hand corner of your Instagram account.



Scroll down until you see ‘Add Account’.


If you don’t see it you may well have to update the app.

If that is not an option then delete the app from your phone and reinstall it.

I had to delete and reinstall three times for it to work.

Then simply add in your other account details.


I have a feeling that Instagram may now gain even more leverage against its social media competitors.
