If you have not been paying attention to being logged in in the past, you might have left your account logged in where you would not like to have it logged in.
You could have logged in on a stranger’s phone, a public library, etc. As you can imagine, this can cause a wide variety of issues.
To make sure this is not the case, we will use a log-out option which allows us to log out from multiple devices at the same time.
- To begin, tap on the Instagram app on your phone.
- Tap on the Profile icon that is located in the bottom right corner.
- In the top right corner, tap the three lines.
- Enter the Settings menu by selecting the gear icon and then enter the Security tab.
- Now you can access the Login Activity.
Login activity will contain login info about all the devices that have your Instagram account logged in. Tapping three dots on the right side of the listed devices will allow you to log out of each device individually.

Logging out of an Instagram account on a computer is straightforward and should be the same regardless of your browser.
To log out of Instagram, you simply need to press the icon in the top right corner. A pop-up menu will display, allowing you to select the log-out option.
Changing Instagram password
If you have not paid much attention to the logging-out process in the past, chances are your Instagram password might be compromised.
To ensure the security of your account, I would advise changing your current password.
If you are using mobile devices, you need to go to the security tab we opened earlier.
On the security page, tap the password section. It will ask you to enter your current password and a new one; after you are done, tap save (if using an iOS device) or the checkmark (if using an Android device).
Changing Instagram password on PC
To change your Instagram password on your PC, click on the profile icon in the top right corner and select profile from the menu.
This will open your profile page and enable you to click the “Edit profile” option.
In the “Edit profile” set of options, you can select “Change Password.” You will be asked to enter the old password and the new one. Clicking the blue background “Change Password” button will confirm the change.
In this article, I have covered how to log out of Instagram on Android and iPhone and how to log out of browser versions. I have also covered some security aspects, such as changing your password and logging out of all devices at once.
