The popular photo sharing app Instagram is reportedly working a new ‘main account’ that would help advance users to manage multiple accounts using a single login. The users will have to make one account as their primary account and logging into that account will help them manage their other accounts as well. The feature, however, is still in developing stage and its traces were spotted in the alpha build of Instagram. There is no detail as to when this feature might end up with the stable version of the app.

TechCrunch, which received this tip and the code found within the alpha version of the app from a tipster Ishan Agarwal, explains  “Quickly and securely log in to all of your Instagram accounts with one ID and password. Make one of your accounts your main account and use it to log in to all of your other accounts at once . . . Your accounts will remain separate but logging in will be fast and simple . . . Anyone who has the password for your main account will have access to the accounts connected to it.”

TechCrunch further notes in their report that the main account feature will let users connect their accounts to one primary account that can be used to access all the other accounts. Logging into the primary account will automatically provide access to the rest of the linked accounts. This will also help users remember the password since they have to remember one email account and one password in order to access all of their Instagram accounts. Advanced users will find it easy to access and manage multiple accounts on Instagram with this new feature.

TechCrunch adds that the account linking feature on Instagram will help functionalities to expand in future by allowing users to register to third-party apps using Instagram like Facebook login.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had recently revealed that he plans to merge WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook into one platform by 2020.
