How to Create & Manage Multiple Instagram accounts?

Do you have multiple Instagram accounts? Want to manage multiple Instagram accounts? There are lots of reasons you might want multiple Instagram accounts. Maybe you need one for your personal life and one for your business or maybe you and your partner share a device but want to post photos to your own accounts. It’s good to note that two is not the limit of Instagram accounts you can create or manage simultaneously. Instagram allows you to manage up to five accounts. But you’ll need separate emails for each one. Here’s how to do it.

You can create a new Instagram account while you’re logged into your current account. If you have already created multiple Instagram accounts, you can simply connect them.

We’ll go over both options in detail below, as well as how to switch between your Instagram accounts and how to remove an Instagram account, should you need to in the future.

How to Create Multiple Instagram Accounts

1. Create Instagram with Different Logins for different accounts

  • Open the Instagram app and login with your first account. Click on view profile option.
click on profile
  • When you click on the profile symbol you can see a menu with some options like Archive, Your Activity, Saved, etc. At the bottom of the screen, you can see settings options. Tap on Settings as shown in the below screenshot.
click on settings
  • Once you tap on Settings you will see all the settings related to your Instagram account. Scroll down the Upto Add Account, Log Out option as shown in the below screenshot. Click on Log out.
Click on log out
  • Once you click on the Log out then it shows a screen as shown in the below image. Here you have two options.
    • Login In with Existing account: If you already created another account on Instagram and you have remembered the username and password then click on the log in with Existing account.
    • Create New Account: If you don’t have multiple accounts on Instagram, then click it.
click on create new account

Here our requirement is to create multiple accounts. So click on the Create new account option.

  • Once you click on the Add account option, then you will see a screen with Signing up option. Choose Sign Up with Email Address or Phone number.

  • Once you click on the signup option as shown in the above image, you need to select the method of signup either using Phone number or Email account as shown in the below image.
    • If you want to create your account via phone number then select on the phone number, enter the number and then click on the Next option at the bottom Or
    • If you want to create account via Email then select Email Address, enter your Email address and then click on Next option at the bottom.

  • Once you enter Phone number/ Email address then you will get confirmation code for mentioned Phone number/ Email address. Enter that confirmation code in the mentioned place and then click on the Next option as shown in the below image.
enter confirmation code
  • Now a screen will appear to choose your username. Choose the username until you get green colored tick mark. (If the username that you entered is taken by other persons then you will get a red cross mark then you need to choose a new name which does not use up to now).
chose user name
  • Once you choose the username then give your full name and password as shown in the below image. If you want to sync contacts then click on the Continue and sync Contacts otherwise Continue without syncing contacts.
enter name and password
  • With this step, your second instagram account is created. Now you can complete full settings for your profiles like profile photo, bio, etc. If you want to add profile photo click on Add photo otherwise click on Skip and then use Instagram account.

This method is more secure if you want to maintain privacy with those two Instagram accounts. Because you need to enter your user name and password every time when you want to login into multiple accounts. If any other person knows one account password, they can only log in to that. They can’t access your second account.

2. Use same account login for different accounts

If you want to access two accounts without entering passwords again and again then you don’t need to click on log out option for first account while creating a second account. Just click on Add account.

click on add account
  • When you click on the Add account option instead of log Out it asks you to enter user name. Enter a user name which is not used by anyone that includes some special characters, symbol, numbers, etc until you get green cloured tick mark just beside the user name that you entered. And then click on Next option.
enter username
  • Now it ask you about your login details with below screen. Choose login via same account as shown below.
choose account for login
  • Now it shows a pop-up screen with a message that the user who can access first account can also access your second account as shown below. Just click Ok option.

  • With this your account creation is completed 90%. just you need to finish two steps for completing account creation. When you click on OK then the below screen will shown. Click on Complete Sign-up.

That’s it. With this multiple Instagram accounts were created on same device.

If you want to see you can two accounts click on down-arrow mark at the username. Then you can see two accounts and you can switch to anyone without entering passwords.

Just click on the account which you want to use. Everything is completed about creating multiple Instagram accounts.

But in first method (Create Instagram with Different LogIns for different accounts) you can’t see what accounts that you have on your device when you click on Down-arrow mark at the user name. You can see that account itself and Add account option. That’s it.
