Manage Multiple Instagram Accounts

For those who’re a social media professional or entrepreneur, you’ve likely wondered, “Can I have multiple Instagram accounts?”

Rest assured, you can. And managing them is simpler than you may assume. In this article, we’ll explain exactly the way to do it.

Can I manage multiple Instagram accounts?

The easy answer is yes. One consumer can manage up to five Instagram accounts instantly within the Instagram app. A third-party app like Hootsuite lets you handle even more Instagram accounts and share the management responsibilities with other group members.

Is there an app to handle multiple Instagram accounts?

The simplest strategy to handle many Instagram accounts is to use a social media management app like Hootsuite. This allows you to manage multiple Instagram accounts out of your mobile device or your computer.

Using an app like Hootsuite also makes it simpler to work with multiple Instagram accounts by allowing you to schedule posts in advance for each account.

Now you can post to any of the accounts you have added to the Instagram app. Simply choose the account you need to use by following the steps above, then start posting as usual.

You may always tell which account you’re using by looking at the profile picture. The profile picture could be quite small in some views, so select distinct pictures to ensure you always post to the correct account.

How you can remove one of your Instagram accounts from the app

At some point, you might need to remove one of your multiple Instagram accounts from the app.

Why? Since you may manage a maximum of five accounts from the Instagram app, you may need to remove an account to make room to add a new one. Or, maybe you’re no longer working on a particular account and simply need to ensure you don’t post to it accidentally.

Here’s how you can remove an individual Instagram account from the app.

Notice: In case you’ve set up Multi-Account Login, you’ll need to disable it before you may remove individual accounts. In case you haven’t enabled Multi-Account Login, skip ahead to step 4.

Step 1: From your profile, tap the hamburger icon, then Settings, then Multi-Account Login.

Step 2: Deselect the account you need to remove, then tap Remove in the pop-up box.

Although it could look like you’re completed, you haven’t removed the account from your app yet—you’ve just eliminated it from the Multi-Account Login. There are a few more steps to remove it from the app:

Step 3: Return to your profile, and change to the account you need to remove.

Step 4: Tap the hamburger icon, then Settings.

Step 5: Tap Log Out [username], then tap Log Out in the pop-up box.

Once you return to your profile and tap on your username, you will notice the removed account is no longer included in the drop-down.

Notice that removing your account from the app does not delete your account. In case you need to delete your account (forever), follow the steps provided by Instagram.
