As of this week, Instagram has begun to allow users to switch between multiple accounts using one mobile app. According to social media services Los Angeles, this new feature has been greatly anticipated by the public.
One of its key benefits is it will allow those who use Instagram as a marketing tool to utilize the app to its highest potential. Now bloggers and marketers everywhere can switch between various accounts without having to sign out. The new feature will be unveiled through app version 7.15 on iOS and Android. Users can use up to 6 total accounts and control them with one single device. Before now, users had to repeatedly sign in and out in order to review their separate accounts. To maintain separate personal and business accounts became a challenge, as users constantly had to keep track of which devise they were on.
Before this innovation, many people resorted to using multiple phones just to manage their various Instagram accounts simultaneously.
The new app is actually quite easy to use.
- Visit ‘profile settings’ and ‘add additional account’
- The profile setting is the ‘head and shoulders’ icon. The ‘add account’ feature is indicated by the triple dots icon.
- At that point, you can simply touch your username on your profile, at the top, and you can switch between the multiple accounts.
- At that point, you have multiple accounts and Instagram has added a profile photo throughout the page, so you are always aware of what app you are using.
- You can also enter an individual username and password for each individual account you add, similar to the way you sign up for an account the first time. At this point, the new account is now in the app.
- To switch between accounts, return to ‘profile’ and select ‘username’. A drop-down of your accounts will appear and simply select the one you want to use.
