Phantom itself does not expose any account-switching specific API on their window object.

For that, you have to continuously check the poll for the currently connected account and set the publicKey to variable or cookies. When the publicKey changes to current then you can trigger your event or functions.

Here are detailed answers for all the wallets.

let currentKey = '';

poll(() => {
  if (/* wallet available and connected */) {
    await /* Action that updates publicKey */
    if (currentKey !== wallet.publicKey.toBase58()) {
      currentKey = wallet.publicKey.toBase58();
      this.publicKey = wallet.publicKey;
