How Many Instagram Accounts can I Login To At Once??

Posted by Sydney on November 20, 2018

Instagram is a great way to not only stay in touch with you family, but also to goof off with your friends, market your side business, or share your art. But those followers who love seeing your custom jewelry maybe don’t care about your dog’s latest antics. It makes sense to manage multiple accounts to cater to your multiple interests and multiple audiences.

That’s why in 2017 Instagram rolled out the option to connect up to five different accounts to your email address and access them quickly and easily from the same app. Now you can have an account for your baby, your cat, your job, and whatever or whoever else you want to share with the world.

 

How to Add a New Instagram Account

If you already have an Instagram account, then adding another should be easy. You already have the app installed. Now you just need to create a new login with a new username and connect it to the account you already have.

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap the options icon.                                                                                         
  3. Tap Settings.                                                                 
  4. Scroll down.
  5. Tap Add Account.                                                         
  6. Enter a username and password for the new account.

Note that you can’t create a new account this way. You need to create the account first. You can do this by going to Instagram.com and tap Sign Up. Make sure to associate the new account with the same phone number.

 

How to Switch Between Instagram Accounts

Now that you have more than one account, it’s time to figure out how you can access each of them with ease. The good news is you don’t have to constantly be logging out of one account and logging back in to another.

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap the username at the top of the screen.                             
  3. Tap the name of the account to which you want to switch. 

 

How to Remove an Account from the List

If you decide that you’re no longer interested in keeping up with your fashion account or you have a new account that you want to spend more time working on, then you can remove an account from the list. This will not delete the account entirely and you can still log back into it at any time. It simply won’t be available for quick access as described above.

  1. Go to the profile for the account you want to remove.
  2. Tap the options icon.
  3. Tap Settings.
  4. Scroll down.
  5. Tap Log out of [username].                                                   

You can always add this account back at a later time.

 

Tips for Managing Multiple Accounts

Having multiple accounts under your belt can be overwhelming, especially if you’re using all five slots. It’s important to keep a few things in mind while managing the accounts to avoid missing notifications and making potentially embarrassing mistakes.

  • Know what account you’re using. Especially if you’re in a hurry, it can be shockingly easy to post something to your account thinking you’re using a different one.

 

  • Your feed will only display accounts your current account is following. Each of your accounts is a different entity that follows different people. The feed you are looking at is only for your currently active account. Remember that.

 

  • Push notifications will only work for currently active account. Push notifications can be enabled or disabled for accounts on an individual basis. However, the notifications you see will only be for your currently active account. To see notifications for each account, go to your profile and tap on the username.

 

Can I Have More than Five Accounts?

Are five easily accessible accounts not enough for you? Unfortunately, Instagram caps you at five. However, there are some ways that people have tried to work around this issue.

For starters, you could try cloning the app. Normally, you’d only be able to have one copy of an app on your phone. If you clone that app, you can have more than one. Sometimes this will allow you to use twice the features, as in the case of Instagram accounts. There are several third party apps that makes this possible.

But honestly, isn’t five plenty?
