Signing in to your Instagram account on the iPhone 13 app is no different than signing in to most of the other apps that you use on your device.
But many people have more than one Instagram account so that they can keep their interests separate, or so that family members or work colleagues can’t see some of their activity in the app.
Managing these multiple apps in the iPhone app might seem difficult, however, because the way that you sign out of an Instagram account on the iPhone is not immediately obvious.
You can sign out of Instagram on an iPhone 13 by opening the Instagram app, tapping your profile icon, touching the three lines, choosing Settings, then tapping the Log Out button.
This will sign you out of the app and return you to the log in screen so that you can sign in to a different account.
Our tutorial continues below with additional information on switching Instagram accounts on an iPhone in the Instagram app on the device.
How to Sign out of the Instagram iPhone App

More Information on Logging Out of an iPhone Instagram App Account
Signing out of your Instagram account won’t affect your login to your Facebook account in the Facebook app. You can be signed into different accounts in both of those apps.
You can add additional Instagram accounts to the iPhone app if you would like to be able to switch between them in the future. The option to add an account to the iPhone Instagram app is found at the bottom of the Settings menu, near where you had to go to sign out of the account in the steps above.
You will need to know the password for your Instagram account (or it will need to be saved on your phone) if you want to sign in again in the future. Additionally, you might need to complete some additional security steps depending on the security level of your account settings.
