Multi-account support comes to Instagram

Instagram has added one of the most-requested features to their app — the ability to log in using multiple accounts. Before the update, if a user had a personal and brand account, they would have to log off one account and then log in with the other. Now account switching can take place in the Settings section of the app.

An official statement was released on the Instagram blog. They also included instructions on how to access the new features.

Go to your profile settings to add an additional account. From there, tap your username at the top of your profile to switch between accounts. Once you have multiple accounts added, you’ll see your profile photo appear in places throughout the app so you can always tell which one you’re using at the moment.

Instagram is a mobile photo-and-video sharing program. It allows users to choose from a variety of different filters for an image. The photos and videos can then share them publicly through social media or privately among friends.

Account switching is important for users who run multiple accounts. An example is someone who has a brand account along with a personal account.

9to5Mac points out receiving notifications will be different if you’re using multiple accounts on an Apple device. Part of this could be to conserve battery life.

They indicate that the notifications “depends on when you last logged in and the number of devices that are logged in to an account”.

The new update is available for version 7.15 of Instagram on iOS and Android devices.
