We’re all about productivity hacks and we just discovered how to use the Instagram app to manage multiple accounts!

  4. After you sign in, the profile icon (bottom right of the main footer navigation) is replaced with your custom profile avatar
  5. To switch between Instagram accounts, tap and hold on your custom profile avatar (in the main footer nav) or tap your username (e.g. “COMNIO”) in the app header and an account menu appears
  6. To use Instagram as your other account, simply tap on the Instagram account you want to switch to and your Instagram view should refresh
