How to Manage Multiple Instagram Accounts With One Powerful Tool Are you running several Instagram accounts? Whether it be for clients or a business, managing more than one Instagram account can be a challenge, but it doesn't have to be, at least not when you have CoSchedule by your side. Let's take a look at how you can develop a process to keep track of more than one Instagram account.

How To Add Multiple Instagram Accounts

A year ago, running multiple Instagram accounts would have been a real pain. Newly released Instagram features now let you access up to five different handles so you can manage multiple Instagram accounts on a single device. Instagram has made the process simple enough. To add another account:
  1. Launch the Instagram app and go to your profile.
  2. Select the gear or dotted icon in the upper-right hand corner.
Select the gear or dotted icon 3. Scroll down, select Add Account and enter the desired username and password for the account you would like to add. Click Add Account 4. Repeat the process if you want to add another account.

Once you've added each Instagram account, you are able to switch between accounts with a few clicks. To switch between accounts you've added:

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap your username at the top of the screen.
  3. Tap the account you'd like to switch to.
Tap to switch accounts If you’ve created several Instagram accounts, you will now receive push notifications from all accounts that have notifications activated. To see the notifications for each individual account, go to your profile page and select the username from the list. The easily interchangeable feature allows you to hop back and forth from each account without needing to login.
