How to switch between multiple accounts on Instagram

Instagram has finally released one of it’s most requested features – the ability to switch between multiple accounts without having to log in and out each time. A small feature but one that is sure to make a lot of people happy! The feature has been rolled out gradually to users this past week, if you haven’t seen this feature on your account yet my guess is that you should in the next couple of days.

There are two ways to switch between accounts, you can do so by tapping on your username on the top of the screen or holding the profile icon at the bottom of the screen and then selecting the account you wish to use. Choose a different profile photo on each account to help you distinguish which is which.
