If you’re receiving the notification on Instagram “you reached the maximum number of business accounts,” you’ll need to either reconnect your Facebook business page, switch a business account to a personal account, or create Facebook pages to link to your Instagram.
What is the Limit of Instagram Business Accounts?
The limit on Instagram business accounts is 5 accounts.
If you’re looking to add more than 5, you’ll have to follow our fix below.
How Do You Fix “You Reached the Maximum Number of Business Accounts On Instagram?”
Relink Your Facebook Page to Your Instagram Account
If there’s a connection issue, it will ask if you want to reconnect your Instagram.
Reconnect and you’ll find your business account on Instagram has returned.
Not the fix?
Don’t worry, keep reading.
Switch One of the Previous Business Accounts to a Personal
Another easy way to fix this problem is to switch one account to a personal account if it does not need to be a business profile or professional profile.
If neither of these options works for you, follow the below workaround to get more than the 5 maximum pages.
Create a New Facebook Page
When you create a new Facebook business page, you can connect it with your personal Instagram, even if you’ve already hit your maximum number of professional profiles.
Here’s how to do it!
Open Facebook and travel to the Facebook menu.
Select “Your Pages.”
Then, select “Create.”
Follow the prompts to create your business page.
Once your page is complete, travel to the page and open “Settings.”
Select the Instagram tab and click “Connect Account.”
Now when you go back to Instagram and click the option to “switch to professional profile” you’ll have another business account and will not receive the “you reached the maximum number of business accounts” error message.
Repeat this process for however many business pages you need to create.
Get in Touch with Instagram Support
