How to add Instagram accounts on Postcron?

It’s very easy! It’s only two steps and you can start scheduling and managing your Instagram posts. Click on the Instagram icon under “Add Accounts” and then on “Profile.”

Add account

Name your account in a way that will be easy for you to identify to which account your posts belongs to when you post them (you don’t have to log into Instagram or give us your username and password).

When you get the notification on your mobile device, it will show the account’s name as chosen on Postcron; so we recommend that the name you choose is your Instagram handle (or a name that helps you easily identify which Instagram account the post belongs to), so you can know if you need to switch accounts on the Instagram app before posting (if you only have one account, disregard this).


Frequently asked questions:

A. I’m not receiving the notifications

Check some frequent notification issues to make sure your Instagram posts arrive on time! If you created the posts from Postcron’s web version, make sure you are logged into the same Postcron account on the app! Go to the Notification Settings on your mobile phone and make sure you enable Postcron notifications. We recommend that you check more information on how to manage notifications on your mobile device:

  • How to manage notifications on Android
  • How to manage notifications on iOS


B. How many Instagram accounts can I link to my device?

Instagram limits the number of account per device to 5. Within that limit you can quickly switch between them without having to login again. For more information, visit Instagram’s support page or make sure that you have the latest version of the app and your operating system.


C. How are the push notifications?

You will see them as notifications on the mobile device with the Postcron app installed and that’s logged into your Postcron account. On them you will see which Instagram account your post belongs to. We recommend checking if you are logged into the correct account before opening the notification.


D. How many posts can I post per day?

With this new dynamic you can now post up to 140 posts (Feed or Story) to each Instagram account per day
