Step 1: Choose Your Primary Account
Before merging, you need to choose which account you want to keep as your primary account. This account will be the one that you will merge your secondary account into. Make sure to choose the account that has more followers and engagement.
Step 2: Log Out of Both Accounts
To proceed with the merging process, you need to log out of both your primary and secondary accounts. This is to ensure that there are no active sessions that might interfere with the merging process.
Step 3: Log In to Your Primary Account
Once you have logged out of both accounts, log in to your primary account. This will be the account that you will be merging your secondary account into.
Step 4: Go to Settings
In your primary account, go to your profile and click on the three lines in the top right corner. From there, select “Settings”.
Step 5: Select “Add Account”
Under “Settings”, select “Add Account” and enter the login details for your secondary account. This will link your secondary account to your primary account.
Step 6: Request to Merge Accounts
Once your secondary account is linked to your primary account, go to “Settings” and select “Account”. From there, select “Request to Merge Accounts” and follow the on-screen instructions. Instagram will review your request and merge your accounts if it meets their requirements.
Step 7: Enjoy Your Merged Account!
Congratulations! You have successfully merged your two Instagram accounts. You can now manage both accounts from one account, making it easier to post and engage with your followers.
