Linking two or more Instagram accounts allows us to log in to any of them with the same credentials. This feature lets us switch between two or more profiles in the application without having to remember several passwords, something very useful when we have both a professional and a personal profile.

But what if we want to unlink our accounts? The process is quite simple if we know how to do it. Below, you will find a step-by-step guide to unlinking Instagram accounts.

How to know if an Instagram account is linked to another one

To find out if we have an account linked to another, we only need to go to our profile and tap on the username. The pop-up menu will display the current profile and, if available, other linked profiles.

After doing this, we will only have one account in our profile. However, before you do this, you must know that Instagram no longer lets you link multiple accounts. If you unlink your profiles, the change will be permanent.
