Don't worry, I've got you covered. Here are four methods to remove saved login info from Instagram on Android and iPhone.

Method 1: From the Login Screen (Android)

Pro Tip: On Android, you can also clear the data of the Instagram app to log out of all the logged-in accounts on your Android smartphone. For that, go to Settings > Apps > Instagram > Storage. Clear data.

Method 2: By Removing Saved Login Info (iPhone and Android)

Sometimes, even if you remove the Instagram app from your phone and reinstall it, the account still stays there. In such cases, follow these steps to remove saved login info from the Instagram app:

  1. Go to your profile screen in the Instagram app on your Android or iPhone.

  2. Tap the three-bar icon and choose Settings and Privacy.

  3. Go to Accounts Centre followed by Password and Security.

  4. Tap on Saved login followed by your Instagram account.

  5. Turn off the toggle next to Saved login information. This disables the automatic password-saving feature and lets you remove the saved login info.

Now go back to Settings and log out of your account and remember to tap ‘Not Now' so that the app doesn't save your login info again.

Note: If you don't have the Accounts Centre option, go to Settings in the Instagram app. Select Security followed by Saved login information.

Method 3: By Logging Out (Android)

You can also simply log out of your Instagram app on Android and select the ‘don't save password' option to remove saved login info.

  1. In the Instagram app, go to your profile screen.

  2. Tap on the three-bar icon at the top and select Settings and privacy.

  3. Scroll down and tap on Log out [username]. A pop-up will show up. Tap on Not now.

Tip: Know what happens when you log out of the Instagram app.

Note: If you have multiple profiles added to the Instagram app, switch to the profile whose login information you want to remove before logging out.

Method 4: Remove Multiple Accounts' Saved Login Info (iPhone)

If you have multiple accounts logged in on the Instagram app, removing the accounts is also easy.

Simply go to the Login Page by logging out of your account. You'll see multiple accounts on the login page. Tap the tiny button that says Edit. Now, you'll see tiny X buttons next to the login button of every account. Tap the X button to remove remembered Instagram accounts on your iPhone. Tap Remove on the pop-up to delete the account's login info. Repeat for all the accounts you want to be removed.

The Last Resort: Remove the Facebook App

In case the above methods fail, check if the Facebook app is installed on your phone and Instagram is linked to your Facebook account. In such a situation, you need to unlink Facebook and Instagram or remove the Facebook app from your phone to remove all traces.

Tip: Learn what happens when you make your Instagram profile public or private.
