Good news Instagrammers!
Ever wake up from a really good dream and have that dream come true? That’s how I feel about this latest Instagram news! Instagram just announced that they have made an update to their app which will allow us to easily switch between accounts as early as this week! Which means if you have a personal Instagram account and one for your blog, you no longer have to log out of one and into the other.
According to an update on the Instagram blog:
You can now add up to 5 Instagram accounts and quickly switch between them without having to log out and log back in. This is included on version 7.15 for iOS and Android, available in the App Store and the Google Play Store.
How to switch between accounts on Instagram:
- Go to your profile page and click on the wheel icon or the three dots in the top right
- Scroll down until you see Add Account & click on it
- Enter the username and password of the account you’d like to add. You can add up to 5 accounts.
Once you’ve got your accounts added, in order to switch between accounts, all you have to do is tap the username at the top of the screen and select which account you’d like to use.
WARNING: This is both a blessing and a curse. Blessing, because YEAH no logging in and out, but a CURSE because it means there is much more room for error, as in accidentally posting a picture of your evening cocktail on the company’s Instagram page. You’ll definitely want to be more mindful before you post that you are posting on the right Instagram page.
