Instagram allows you to link up to 5 accounts on one Android device. If you are an Instagram account manager with more than five accounts, you will be limited to using a second device to access the other accounts or log out from one of the five accounts each time you need to access an extra account.
Sounds very hectic, right? Well, app cloning will offer a solution to your problems and help you link more than 5 Instagram accounts on one device. App cloning involves duplicating an app (in this case Instagram) so that it appears as two apps working independently.
Some devices like Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei have an in-built “Twin App” feature that supports app cloning. Other devices that do not have the feature need to use a third-party application that clones apps.
App cloner is an easy-to-use tool that allows you to create and install multiple copies of the existing apps on your Android device. The cloned apps will operate independently from the original apps and will not ask for updates.
To use App Cloner to clone Instagram:
- Download App cloner and install it in your Android device
- Open the app by tapping on its icon
- On the home screen, scroll down through the list of apps to find Instagram
- Tap on Instagram’s icon
- On the page that appears, edit the clone details including the number of clones you want, name of the clone, and icon color among others
- When done editing, tap on the tick button on the right side of the screen
- Tap OK on the pop-up screen that appears and CONTINUE on the next pop-up that will appear
- The cloning process will begin and will take a few minutes to complete.
- When the process reaches 100%, tap INSTALL APP
- Follow the installation procedure and when the process is completed, you will have a cloned copy of your Instagram account in your phone’s menu.
