If you are an Instagram user, then you are already familiar with the basics of how this social messaging App works, and how you can share images and videos with your family and friends in real time.
It’s no wonder that Instagram has become such a huge hit, so much so that it currently boasts of having 1 billion users. While Instagram is no social media giant, it was nevertheless acquired by Facebook for a cool $1 Billion in 2014 and since then, has continued its trajectory to grow even more.
Here are a few ways through which you can set up and enjoy multiple Instagram accounts with ease and without the need of logging out of one account in order to log into the other.
Ways to Manage Multiple Instagram Accounts
Setting up the right platform
There are a few Instagram platforms that you can use to set up multiple Instagram accounts. All you have to do is to set up a schedule for the posts and content for your multiple Instagram accounts, use the platform to schedule the lot in and upload the content which in turn should get posted to these multiple accounts.
Basically, you are letting a third party handle the cumbersome task of managing multiple accounts at the same time, which can be daunting at best. You can use these accounts for both curated content as well as created content.
With the former, you would be setting up for a client for whom you would curate content from various online sources and post it on Instagram. While with the later, you and your team would mainly be utilizing it as a part of your branding strategy and to create fresh content for your audience.
Managing multiple accounts with your mobile
There’s another easier way to get around this than to use external platforms, to manage your multiple Instagram accounts. The first thing that you need to do is to download and install the Instagram app on your phone.
Once you have downloaded and installed the same, you need to open it and login, after which you can head into your account and click on the three vertical dots to the top right of the App, which should open a drop-down menu.
From the list of options, choose settings, which should open another drop-down menu. Now, scroll all the way down and you should spot an option that says “add account”. Now click on the same, and you would be asked to enter the credentials of your other account. That’s it!
By doing this, you should be able to handle multiple Instagram accounts with the same phone, without having to log out of your account all the time.
Manage multiple accounts with third party Apps, for both Android and iOS
Of course, you can also use third party Apps that would permit you to handle multiple accounts at the same time. There are more than a few Apps in the market that would enable you to do so with ease.
The only catch is that most of the Apps that can permit you to operate multiple accounts are not available at the Play store. But, of course, you can download their SDK file, store the file in your phone, install and activate the same.
These Apps are more often than not, clones of the Instagram app and should help you maintain multiple accounts at the same time.
iOS comes with a better option; since iOS security is supposed to be more intensive than Android phones, it does not allow you to download and install third party Apps. But you can download and install a free App from the iTunes store which does just that.
Just check out for the FotogrameApp on the Store and download it. Once you have downloaded the file and saved it on your phone, you can then install and activate it with ease. You can then use this App to log into your Instagram account and then change it between multiple accounts at the same time, without any hassle.
It is that easy! And, what’s more! By installing this App on your phone, you would not have to download and install the official Instagram app and in the process, save more space on your phone.
These are the ways that you can set up and manage multiple accounts on Instagram, seamlessly without having to log out each time in order to log into the other account. If you are using Instagram for your personal use, then you do not need multiple accounts.
However, if you do have business clients and need you to curate content for them or if you own a business and are trying a branding strategy, then it makes sense to have more than one account.
Please remember that if you want to set up five accounts or more on Instagram, and use them at the same time, then you would require a third-party app to do it with ease and no hassle.
