Having multiple Instagram accounts might be exactly what you and your brand are missing. You just might not know it yet. Did you know that with Shift, you can also login to Instagram on your desktop?

When Instagram first came to be, it was difficult to navigate in browsers. And while there's still no way to actually upload your photographs to it while at your computer, you can do pretty much everything else.

These days, Instagram allows you to view stories, search and explore tags and locations, and follow (and unfollow, let's be real) accounts from your desktop. Furthermore, you can also manage multiple accounts directly from Shift.

Sick and tired of having to log in and out of your brand profile? Boy, do we have a solution for you!
