Instagram (iOS): how to prevent additional accounts from showing up in the dropdown menu??

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I could use some help with the following for Instagram on iPhone:

 

I have multiple accounts, some of which I use more than others.

Now I would like to prevent my not-so-active accounts from showing up in the dropdown menu...

(with dropdown menu I mean the menu that shows up, when you click 'profile' in the lower right corner, and than go to the centre in the upper section)

 

- So I do NOT want to delete these actual accounts, but I only want them erased from the dropdown menu.

Could anyone please help me with this?

Simply not possible. 

 

You can try adding Instagram PWA or some instagram management app for the other accounts or something, and use the proper app only with your main account.

I already found the solution... by coincidence!
There are some small things during log-out that can cure this issue.

Although it's "simply not possible", I'm happy it IS for me!;)

Just logging out is not enough, you have to tick certain options before doing so...
It's just not that clear from within the app itself, having to play around first.

But luckily "simply not possible" seemed possible after all...

Either way, you logged out of those accounts. You framed your question as if you just wanted the other accounts to disappear from just that one menu, while still being there in the app. Which is, in fact, impossible.
