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.


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 ^^
