HOW TO ADD AN ADDITIONAL INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT(S)
Instagram has made the process of adding additional Instagram accounts to the app simple enough. Once you launch the app, go to your profile (the icon or picture on the far right along the bottom) and select the gear — or the three dots — in the upper-right corner of the next screen.
Then, scroll all the way down, select Add account, and enter the desired username and password for the account you would like to add. If you’ve created several Instagram accounts, you will be able to access notifications for each on the corresponding profile. You can change your notifications settings for each of them.
HOW TO SWITCH BETWEEN ACCOUNTS
At this point, you, your curmudgeonly cat, and your ill-fated terrarium each have their own Instagram account. Now you’ll need to know how to toggle between your various accounts. Go to your profile page and tap your username at the top of the screen. You’ll then have the option to select from a list of accounts associated with your specific app.
HOW TO REMOVE AN ACCOUNT YOU’VE ADDED
OK, so the novelty has worn off and that newly added account isn’t really panning out like you’d hoped. It happens to the best of us. Thankfully, it’s easy to erase that old account and move on with other prospects. Once you’ve loaded your Instagram profile, select the gear icon — or the three dots if you are on an Android device — in the upper-right of the screen. Scroll down and select the Log out of [username] option. If you wish to use the account again in the app, you’ll need to log back in.
If you’re over the Instagram game entirely and want to remove all of your accounts from your device, you can also select Log out of all accounts to do so. But don’t be too hasty, a quantum reality could easily be at stake. After all, if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to document it on Instagram, does it make a sound? It’s a good question. If you want to permanently delete your Instagram account, rather than just logging out of it, we have a guide for you as well so you can say goodbye and good riddance once and for all.
