Problem: How to add second Instagram account on iPhone XS Max

Hi! Just read your article on how to add a second account on Instagram. I have also read and watched other tutorials on the subject concerning a second or multiple accounts up to five. So, I had the impression I could scroll down to “add  an account”, put in the new username & password, and login. It says I am using the “incorrect username”. I did not want to try to log in via FB because I was already connected on my first account which is always connected to FB. I only have one other email address which is different than the one on my 1st instagram account but, if I would like to create up to 5 different accounts I would need to have 5 different email address? I really had the impression I could keep the same email address for all. So, I am obviously not understanding how to set up a 2nd or several more accounts. Not as easy as everyone says… I would appreciate any advice and easy explanation to solve this issue.  Best Regards.

Solution: If you’ve already checked the article How to create second account and add it to your iPhone 8 Instagram app, then these are the specific steps to add a new account to your Instagram app:

  1. Open Instagram app.
  2. View your Instagram profile.
  3. Tap the Menu (gear icon) at the upper right hand side.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom and tap Add Account.
  5. Sign in to your account by tapping on Login button.

Whenever you create an Instagram account, that said account must be associated to a unique email address, phone number or Facebook account. So, yes, you must have one email address registered for each Instagram account. Each account will let you use a unique username as well so you can easily identify the said account.

To create an Instagram account, kindly visit this official Instagram guide.

Once you’ve created a new account using a different email, phone number, or Facebook account, then you can go ahead and add it in your Instagram app.
