Instagram now supports multiple accounts

I finally got the latest Instagram update that supports multiple accounts! No more logging in and out between my accounts! After testing countless third party apps, trying different work-arounds, and even using two phones, Instagram has finally rolled out the feature I’ve been wanting for years! I’ve been managing @msjayemm and @rtwfoodie for a while now and this is going to make my social media life a whole lot easier!

I just updated Instagram tonight so I thought I’d write a few little how tos for iPhone users.

How to add one or more accounts to your Instagram app

  1. Go to your profile by tapping the Profile icon located in the bottom right corner of Instagram.
    Your profile displays.
  2. Tap the Options icon located in the top right corner of Instagram.
    The Options menu displays.
  3. Scroll to the end of the options and tap Add Account.
    The Instagram login page displays.
  4. Complete the Username and Password fields for the account you wish to add.
  5. Tap Log In.

Your account has now been added to your Instagram app. You can add up to 5 accounts.

First impressions

Notifications! Now I’m getting a lot more push notifications so will revisit my settings as soon I finish posting this :)

I like how Instagram has made it clear which account you are posting from. Still, it’s best to double check before tapping that Share button!

I hope this post has helped the multi-Instagrammers out there! Have you installed the new update yet? What do you think of it?
