Connecting multiple Instagram account to Facebook is by the same procedure you used in connecting the first one.
Will All Linked Accounts And Facebook Be Lost If One Is Hacked?
I once had this problem but thanks to goodness that l using two-factor authentication on both Facebook and Instagram.
The answer is, by default, your Instagram credentials will be the same as Facebook but with different databases. Just as you changed your username after logging in with Facebook, it is advisable to change your email and password too. Use the forget password button on your Instagram account and enter a separate mail id and password to avoid compromising both accounts on the day of Robin Hood.
This is why when you are asked to enter your Instagram password and you enter that of Facebook after connecting your account with Facebook, it is always rejected – they have different databases. If you do this or not, when your Instagram account is hacked, the hacker can’t access your Facebook without going through another layer of security challenge on your Facebook account.
