Believe me, using multiple Facebook accounts on iPhone is not that tough.
Yes, you cannot use more than one Facebook account in the official Facebook app simultaneously. But there is a third-party app on the App Store that will let you do that. Even in the Facebook app, you can now switch between two or more accounts very easily by utilizing the One Tap Login feature.
If you’re looking for a good solution to manage all your Facebook account on your iPhone, then you’ve come to the right place. In this article, I will be sharing with you three ways to solve this issue, from worst to best.
Let’s get started!
1. One Tap Login
This is a feature in the official Facebook app. In case you don’t know about it, here’s how it works
When you first log in using the Facebook app, it’ll ask you to use the feature. Instead of typing your email/phone number and password again and again, you just have to tap on the avatar to log in your account. You can also add a 4-digit passcode to enhance the account’s security.
To add another account, tap on Log Into Another Account from the One Tap Login screen. And each time you want to switch to other accounts, log out the account currently in use first. So with this method, you can manage multiple Facebook account from one place but your accounts cannot be used simultaneously.
2. Using web browsers for extra accounts
Very simple, just log in your extra accounts using web browsers like Safari, Chrome, Opera Mini, Dolphin,… You can use as many accounts as the number of web browsers you have installed on the device.
Remember to bookmark Facebook to quickly access from the web browsers’ home screen. This method might work well for you if you just have two or three accounts. Another drawback of it is since you’re using Facebook from the mobile web interface, you’re unable to receive push notifications.
3. Friendly – Using multiple Facebook accounts on a single app
Friendly is a trusted and good app for multiple Facebook accounts management. You can download it for free from the App Store.
When you launch the app for the first time, you’ll find the app’s interface is very simple. To add a Facebook account, just tap on the outstanding Add Account button. Adding an account is easy, all you have to do is follow the instructions and turn off/on the app’s features for the account. You can log in your Instagram account using this app as well. Cool, right?
Once you’ve logged in your first account, tap on the Account button located at the bottom right of the screen, swipe left and select Add Account. Now just repeat the process that you’ve done with the first account to add the second one.
Want to know pros and cons of using this app? Well, here’s my short review:
- Easy to switch between accounts ✓
- Night Mode with the dark background ✓
- Passcode lock or Touch ID to protect your accounts ✓
- Hiding Posts by Keyword ✓
- Hiding the “People You May Know section” section ✓
- Order feed by Most Recent ✓
- It’s a free app, so you need to upgrade to Pro version ($1.99) to unlock advanced features ✗
- Since the app uses the mobile web-based interface, sometimes it does not work smoothly ✗
- Instagram does not let third-party app post pictures, so you cannot upload photos from your iPhone to Instagram using Friendly ✗
