    "After testing the feature on both Android and iOS in recent weeks, Instagram today announced that it's officially launching multi-account support inside the photo sharing social app. Now, users can maintain more than one account on the same device. The process is pretty simple. Tap your username at the top of your profile to switch between Instagram accounts. Your profile photo will be placed more prominently throughout the app so you don't lose track of which account is active."
    The article says it all. I'm just curious about the limit.

    1 thing I notice is: one of my accounts, which has been running flawlessly with current setting for more than 1 month, suddenly fall into temp block in unfollowing, and some few errors occurred in FL. My FL setting is running well for the pasts 4-5 weeks. Now I just switch back to 1 phone 1 account :( and let the accounts rest for few days.

    So, I think the good point is when you have good accounts with organic follows, it it absolutely perfect to store all accounts on 1 device. When botting, nope :|

    do you use the same IP address for all your accounts (incl. bot for example PROXY) or multiply IP's?

    useful when doing things manually for sure or after botting, but wouldn't recommend using that feature during a botting period, seems a bit too catchy to get a ban on all accounts at once.

    so can different accounts share an email too?
    also this implies the number of accounts on per IP will be more flexible?

    IG can now monitor easily how many accounts you are using per device / IP :s I'm going to stay away from this option.

    This is of no use to people using proxies to run multiple accounts.
    For someone who has a brand account and personal account, it just makes that experience a lot better.

    I found a way to activate this feature. Just switch language on your phone (iOS) and restart the app :)

    I'm still not using it till I know how many (non-botting) accounts is considered safe to use.

    Perfect for me to run my big accounts instead of using different apps. These are my legit, big accounts so I'm very happy they've added in this feature.

    Yep. This feature is good as long as you limit your accounts size to 2 per ip. It's IG, who introduced this feature and I see no big threat of account suspension.

    This just allows them to monitor you more.
