For use Flipside on Instagram you must have been selected as part of this application testing phase. If this has been the case and you don't know it, I'll share with you the access route to try this new function of the social network:

  • Open the Instagram app on your mobile device.
  • Enter your profile by tapping the photo located in the lower right corner of the screen.
  • Touch the upper right corner, the button with the three vertical lines and enter the menu.
  • Press the “settings and privacy” option.
  • Look for the “account” section.
  • Select the “Flipside” option and follow the instructions to create your alternate profile.

If it does not appear using this route, it is because you have not been selected by Instagram as "close friends" to be part of this beta version. However, remember well how to do it, in case they officially release it to all users, that is where you will find it. You should know that it is not active by default, in that sense it must be you – if you wish – who must enable the function.
