How do I switch between Instagram accounts on PC?

These days, Instagram allows you to view stories, send direct message search and explore tags and locations, and follow (and unfollow, let’s be real) accounts from your desktop computer.

But there is no option to switch between Instagram accounts on PC.

You can log in to your various accounts with different browsers, with one browser this is not possible unfortunately.

If I create a second account, the first account’s followers will find out that I got a new account?

If a phone number is used for both accounts and users are able to search for you through your phone, your new account may be offered in the suggested pages section for your followers.
