By now you will have noticed that the button on your profile has changed to the thumbnail of the account you are currently logged into. Want to switch accounts? Easy- simple view your profile as explained earlier, and click your username on the top-left of the screen. You’ll see how easy it to to navigate to each account!

5. If you get tired of one of your accounts – get rid of it

Have you found that you’re not using one of your accounts? No problem, it can easily be removed.

Note that this doesn’t delete the account, but simply removes it from your current Instagram session.
