You can now manage multiple Instagram accounts from your phone.


Instagram is the eighth most popular photo sharing app with over 400 million active users. (Source)  It's one of the most effective platforms for building an audience and they've finally added this long anticipated feature.

Personally I've been waiting forever for this and I hope the feature sticks.

Here's how to get it set up...

Click on the settings icon inside of your account.  It's located on the bottom right where you see my profile photo in the example.

In the options screen scroll to the bottom and select 'add account.'

This takes you a login screen where you would simply input your additional IG user name and password.  As you can see you also have the option of logging in with your Facebook account.

Once logged in you the app will return you back to your profile screen.   On your main screen you will notice two things:

  • On the bottom right you see the profile icon of the account you are logged in as. This helps because you are less likely to mistakenly post to the wrong account.
  • You will now find an arrow next to your username at the top. By tapping this, you can quickly switch back and forth between accounts.

Now, when you get a notification, the username that is being liked or mentioned will show up in [brackets] so you know exactly who it's for.

And there you've set up another account inside of your app.  You can repeat the process with any additional accounts that you need to manage.  There is no limit to amount of accounts you can manage, as long as they all have different email accounts.


Soon videos in your Instagram feed will show the amount of views.

Happy posting and go ahead and follow me on Instagram @IamDonSuave.
