Instagram Log In for Your New Instagram Account
In order to use another Instagram account with your current one, you need to create a new Instagram account first. Follow these steps on how to create a new Instagram account that you can connect with your current one:

3. Scroll your way down until you see the Add Account option at the bottom of the screen. Tap on it.
4. Click on the Sign Up option at the bottom of the screen. You will see two options: sign up with phone number, or email address. You can create your account using Facebook provided that the Facebook account you want to use has a different email address from the one you used to create your primary Instagram account.
Note: If you choose to sign up with email, a link will be sent to your email that will require you to confirm your email address. If you choose to sign up with your phone number, then you will need to wait for a verification code to be sent to you and enter it later in order to complete your registration.
5. Once you have registered a new Instagram account, fill in your profile photo, name and password. You will also need to create a unique username for your new account.
6. By now you should already be logged into your new Instagram account. You can simply switch from secondary account to your primary account whenever you like.
When signing up for a new Instagram account via email or phone number, be sure that the email address or phone number you want to use is different from the one you are using for your primary Instagram account.
