2 ways to give access to your Instagram account

There are basically two ways to add someone to the Instagram account:

  1. Share your Instagram account login details with the person
  2. Add the user to your Facebook (Meta) Business Suite and add access to your Instagram account

The first option is the easiest one but we would strongly discourage you from sharing your login details with anyone.

It is not a safe solution and you can never know if you can trust this person and they will not share the login data with another malicious third party.

The second solution is a little bit trickier, as you also have to have a Meta Business Suite account but it is still the preferred option.

It is more secure, you can clearly control what kind of access the user has and you can also easily remove the person from your Instagram account if you no longer work with him.

How to add users to Instagram account?

So before you would be able to go through this process, you have to have a working Meta Business Suite account (used to be called Facebook Business Manager) and you have to add the Instagram account to this Facebook Business Suite account.

If you haven’t done these, here you can find tutorials on how to do these:

Once you have added the Instagram account to the Meta Business Suite, you can also add people to these Instagram account

Here is how to add users to the Instagram account:

  1. Open the Facebook Business Suite.
  2. Navigate to the ‘Business Settings’ section, or open this link:
  3. Under ‘Users, click ‘People’
  4. Click on the ‘Add’ button
  5. Add the email address of the personinvite user to Instagram account in Meta Business SUite
  6. Select Employee access and click on ‘Next’
  7. Click on ‘Instagram accounts’ in the left columnhow to add user to Instagram account
  8. Select the Instagram account you want to give access to.
  9. Select the access level you want the person to have.
  10. Click on ‘Invite’

The person that you invited no will receive an email where she can either accept the invitation or decline it. Once she accepted it, she will be able to manage the Instagram account.

As you can see you can customize the access level this user will have in the Instagram account. You can turn on or off any of the access levels below:

  • Create, manage or delete posts, stories and more as the Instagram account.
  • Send and respond to direct messages as the Instagram account.
  • Review and respond to comments, remove unwanted content and report activity.
  • Create, manage and delete ads for the Instagram account.
  • See how the Instagram account, content and ads perform.
