    Hey guys,

    I run a conservation IG account and I have a social influencer wanting to take over my IG's story for the day while they are in part of the world my account focuses on.
    1. How do I go about letting them have access to my account?
    2. Do I set rules for them?
    3. Do I need to ask for anything?
    This is completely new for me but any additional advice would be great!

    I wouldn't risk it. Just ask them to send you their pictures and captions.

    It's not like a Facebook Page where you can assign someone to be a page moderator or an editor. Just like what Conor said, just ask for the photos together with the caption and be the one to post them.

    Thanks for the comments guys. This might be a silly question, but what exactly could go wrong? Are we talking about stealing the account or posting crappy pics on the story?

    Just for some context, this influencer has 2mil in followers.

    The only person I let manage my accounts is my girlfriend, and never fully trusting because she can get mad at me and screw up the whole sh*t. You can lose your account in a blink if you let people have access to it.

    Yes, you can lose your account. Wish there was an option to add someone like an Editor or a Manager to help manage our accounts specially for Business Profiles.

    Oh fair call, I hadn't thought about that. Can you post pictures and videos to your story from your phone's library?

    Completely agree! Would be fantastic if that were an option!

    Id agree with everyone else here just have them send the pics/captions and handle from there - perhaps one day IG will have more options for doing this without having to hand over your logins.

    He probably got that idea from Gary Vaynerchuk, Gary Vee was the first person i heard suggesting Story take overs. There's a risk if youre dealing with a shit bag but a social influencer with 2m probably isn't going to steal your account lol.

    No. Don't give your Instagram account to a stranger even if she/he pays you $$$. What about you have his/her Instagram handle in your profile for a day? :p

    1. I would never give my account to someone I don't know personally.
    2. Someone with 2M followers probably won't scam you, too much to loose for him/her (reputation).
    3. As long you have the OG mail, it would be ok.

    This sounds way too risky, you never know what a stranger is up to. Not worth it in my opinion.
