Instagram has a feature to remember your Login details. It allows you to log in to your account with just a single tap without entering your account details. However, it is an optional feature and the app needs your permission to remember your login info.
The ability to login into your account without filling in the details is quite useful, but it can also cause problems. For example, anyone can access your Instagram account by simply tapping your profile picture on your phone. So, under certain conditions, this feature can also endanger your privacy.
Read along if you have a remembered Instagram account and you want to remove it from your device.
How to Remove Remembered Accounts On Instagram?
To remove a remembered account, you first need to turn off Save Login Info and then log out of your account. Here’s how to do it.
Step 1: Launch the Instagram app on your device.
Step 2: Tap your profile icon to head to your Instagram profile page. The profile icon will appear in the bottom-right corner of your screen.
Step 3: Tap the three horizontal line menu in the top-right corner of the screen.
Step 4: Select Settings.
Step 5: Tap Security.
Step 6: Now, under the Login Security section, tap Saved login info.
Step 7: Press the toggle icon beside Saved login to turn it off.
Step 8: A confirmation box will then pop up. Tap Remove.
Step 9: Now, return back to the Settings page.
Step 10: Scroll down to the bottom and tap Log Out ‘your-username’.
Step 11: A pop-up will appear. Untick Remember my login info and tap Log Out.
Congratulations, your account is now successfully logged out and if you have other accounts you will be automatically switched to one of them.
Next time when you try to log in to the same account, you’ll need to enter your login credentials. Although you have logged out of your account, the profile will still appear on the login screen (without your login info).

Step 1: Tap the dropdown icon at the top and select Add account.
Step 2: Tap ‘Log into existing account‘.
