How To Switch Between Multiple Accounts on Instagram

Finally! Instagram now lets you have more than one account linked on Instagram and we are going to show you how to switch between multiple accounts on Instagram.

I can hear the hallelujah chorus echoing all around. Just kidding. But seriously, how exciting is this! You can now get years of your life back because you do not have to log in and out of accounts every day.

To make things easy for you, I have put together a short video showing you exactly how it all works.

A common question that I have gotten, is, “How do I tell which account the notification are for?” This is a great question.

In the notification center, the account that got the notification will be shown at the front of the notification in square brackets as shown below. In this image, @ChelseyVeturis commented on one of @StewandSoph’s photos.
