Before starting, I would like to give you an overview of why this blog post came to my mind. Today, when we created TechUntold Instagram Account, I wanted to add it to my iPhone’s Instagram App where I have already added and use my personal Instagram Account. Adding professional and personal account to the same device is definitely more convenient and effective when it comes to managing them. Hence, I had to find a way to add multiple Instagram accounts to the app. It’s pretty simple and easy to setup. Let’s get started.

1. Open Instagram App on your smartphone.
2. Tap on Profile icon at the bottom right.
3. Under Profile, select Settings(Gear icon or 3 vertical dots) at top right corner.
4. Under Options Menu, scroll down and you will find Add Account. Select it.
5. Enter the credentials of your another Instagram account which you want to add and select Login.
There you go! You have added your second Instagram account to the same App on the same device. Convenient, Isn’t it?

When you add your second Instagram account that becomes active, what if you want to use your first account now. You can easily switch between multiple accounts. Follow the steps mentioned below.
1. Tap on the profile icon at the bottom right.
2. At top center, tap on Account Name.
3. Drop down with all your added Instagram accounts will appear. Select the one desired and it will switch to the same.
Delete or Remove Added Instagram accounts
If at some point, you wish to remove Instagram accounts added by you on your smartphone then you can definitely go ahead and get rid of them. Here’s how.
1. Tap on Profile icon and using the above method switch to the Instagram account you want to remove from your device.
2. Select Settings(Gear icon or 3 vertical dots)
