Do you want to move your Mastodon account, but you don't want to lose your followers?

✅ You can transfer your followers from one Mastodon instance to another by following these steps:

1️⃣ Log into the NEW account on the new instance you want to move to. Go to Edit Profile > Moving From A Different Account > Create An Account Alias

2️⃣ Log into the OLD account on the old instance. Go to Edit Profile > Moving To A Different Account > Configure It Here

As well as followers, you can also transfer your other data when changing instances.

✅ To transfer your Mastodon follows, mutes, blocks etc, use the Import/Export feature:

1️⃣ On your OLD Mastodon account go to Preferences > Import And Export > Data Export and download the relevant files for what you want to transfer.

2️⃣ On your NEW Mastodon account go to Preferences > Import And Export > Import and upload the files you just downloaded from the old account.

@feditips This needs to be better known, also an app where you can manage all of them from the same place would be ideal.


No, it won't do that.

(I don't know whether that's a technical difficulty, or whether there are issues about content moderation on an instance with different rules.)

@feditips That's a shame, but it's understandable. Thank you for answearing ^^
