How to link multiple Instagram accounts: Guide for 2022

How to link multiple Instagram accounts: Guide for 2022

. 8 min read

You may be wondering why we need to link Instagram accounts, right? Let me explain.

Even managing one social media account means a lot of effort, time, and energy if you want some impressions and engagements. It becomes a nightmare if you have two or more.

Instagram requires special attention. Because it is design-oriented, you need to spend respectable time on a single image for its colors, filters, effects, hashtags, captions, etc. So managing more than one Instagram account is undoubtedly not for everyone.

On the other hand, you can’t ignore the power of social media. Marketing on different platforms with multiple accounts could be a magical key to success for your business. Among them, Instagram has a special place. Many professional and personal brands prefer Instagram for commerce, thanks to its excellent features.

Speaking of Instagram and business, if you are looking for ways to trade online, open a store but don’t know how to set up a website or other staff regarding e-commerce, you can come closer here.

Instagram provides entrepreneurs worldwide with great tools and opportunities, so you can make money from your services on Instagram without a website. For more information, you can find our detailed guide here:

First of all, do not confuse concepts. Linking Instagram accounts is not the same as merging them. We need to say this because people are asking this question and they get responses. Here is an example from Quora:

Although it says YES, we can surely say that it is not possible to merge multiple Instagram accounts into one. But, you can still link them. Let’s see how.

Before getting into the details of linking multiple Instagram accounts, you need to know that marketing on other social platforms can also help your business grow. For example Google Business Profile. You can read our detailed guide here to learn how to use Google posts to boost your sales online:

That’s it. You can link up to 5 accounts. If you need more information, you can visit the Instagram help page.

Linking Instagram accounts is not helpful by itself. You also need to learn how to switch from one account to another.

How to switch between your linked Instagram accounts

You need to follow these steps to switch between your Instagram accounts after you’ve linked them:

Step #1: You need to go to your profile page. Tap on your profile picture at the bottom right.

Step #2: At the top left, click on your username.

Step #3: There select the account you want to switch to.

For more information, you can visit the Instagram help page.

At one point, you may decide to remove one of your accounts. Then, you have to know how to unlink your Instagram accounts.

As we said above, merging multiple Instagram accounts is not possible. However, you can merge multiple LinkedIn accounts into one! If you are curious to know how, please check our blog article here:

Having more than one LinkedIn account is not a sin in the professional world. Why do we have them? Reasons can change, but the outcome doesn’t. In the end, you will end up finding it hard to manage your LinkedIn accounts and trying to figure out how to merge multiple LinkedIn accounts.

Here are the steps that you need to follow to unlink Instagram accounts.

Step #1: Open your Instagram app and click on your profile picture. This will take you to your profile page.

Step #2: On the top right, you’ll see three lines. Click on it and then select “Settings” from the menu.
