Steps to follow:

Before this new update if you wanted to publish content with two or more Instagram profiles you needed to log out of your account and log in with the second one, which was really annoying for many. Noticing this urge, apps like "Instwogram" were born in order to allow users to manage more than one account simultaneously without disconnecting.

However, after a long waiting period, Instagram has moved forward to make our lives easier with an update that allows us to do this from the app and without any further complications. In the following steps you'll learn how to have two Instagram accounts with one email.


To begin this procedure you should have the latest Instagram update. To make sure you do, go to Android Play Store or Apple Store on iOS and make sure you have the latest Instagram version. Once you have checked it, log in to any of your accounts and go to your profile directly.

There, press on the three buttons at the top left of your screen and on the screw on iOS to find your account settings.


Once you are in settings, go down to the Information section and find the Add account option, this is the one that will allow you to add a new account. Remember that if you still don't have the latest update this option will not appear.


When you have selected 'add account' the app will take you to the log in page in which we usualy log in to Instagram, here's where you should add the username and password of the second account you want to add.

Type the information and press on Log in.


Now you'll notice that when you log in on Instagram, instead of the usual picture at the bottom right of your screen you'll see your Instagram profile picture, this image is used to show which of your accounts you are currently using.

To change accounts you'll simply have to press on the image and go to your profile on the top left part of your screen. There you'll find a fold-up arrow where both accounts will show, you'll be able to change them freely without having to log out. Moreover, you'll be able to add as many accounts as you like.

It's this simple! Now you know how to manage two Instagram accounts on iPhone and Android, you'll only need to take advantage of this new comfort.

Hi Alexandra,
Go to your account settings and make sure your new account isn't under private mode as this is the most probable explanation.
Hope this helps

I have iPhone 6. I'm trying to add a second IG ACCOUNT . I click on add account and it takes me to the log in page that I assume is to be for my new account name . When I enter a new account name it says it isn't recognized . But it's new . So it's not letting me add a new account name

The second account should already exists before you join them together. Log out and create a new one from scratch and then try to join them from your first account.
I got soooo fustrated reading this as I know EXACTLY whay you mean. I have created TWO instagram account both from different emails. I can easily log into each account on instagram online and I have followers so they both obviously exist. I checked my passwords and usernames to make sure all was correct. The 1st account I set up is fine.. I can log in via the app. The 2nd account I created will not allow me to log in. It tells me the username does not exist even though it does. I have received emails from instagram welcoming me to my new account. I am guessing that it blocks the IP if its detects use of more than one account??? Nothing else makes sense otherwise.... The exact same thing happened with facebook. I just created two facebook pages for both my businesses and it's blocked my IP. Everyone has be raving about instagram trying to get me on there... and now I cannot even use it! I am already hating it before I've evn started!!!!
Hi, I have an iPhone 6s. I have an instagram account, and want another. When I go to the Add Account section, it takes me to the log in page. However you said to enter new account details. However there is space for Username and Password (as if that account already exists, which it doesn't). I enter NEW username and password, and it doesn't recognize. The only other option says : don't have an account? Sign up here. Do I sign up for a new account?
OneHowTo Editor (OneHowto editor)
That's correct, the account should already exist in order to manage both. In this case, you should create the new account.

Hope this helps
I have two accounts using two different email addresses. I'm getting follow suggestions based on likes in my other one. I thought they weren't supposed to be connected??? Frustrating. There is no way the suggestions should be the same. Tried clearing cache. Also tried under dual accounts and just logging in/out with new account. Suggestions are still the same.
Following your advice, I was unable to make a second IG account. Not sure where to go from here. Any ideas?

If you tell us what problem you had more specifically we may be able to help a little bit more. Anyhow, you can also try using the Instwogram app as a last resource.
I used to have the 3 dot option at the top right corner on my iPhone and then after an instagram update it is no longer there??
I have an iPhone 6s with the latest update and I don't have this add account option or even a logout button! What can I do in this situation??

Are you sure you have the latest Instagram version? If so, then you can use other external apps such as Instwogram. Hope this helps
