    Threads, a text-based social media platform from Meta, was built by the Instagram team. That’s why, you need an Instagram account to create a profile on Threads. To put it another way, a Threads profile is an extension of your Instagram profile. That poses some issues. For starters, once you create a profile on Threads, you can’t delete it independently of your Instagram account. In other words, to delete your profile on Threads, you also have to delete your account on Instagram. That’s quite frustrating and many people have been complaining about it. Well, Meta has listened to people and fixed the problem.

    The Head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, has announced that people will now be able to delete or deactivate their Threads profile independently of their Instagram account. “We’re rolling out a way for you to delete your Threads profile separately from your Instagram account”. To delete or deactivate your Threads profile, you will have to navigate to Settings » Account »Delete or Deactivate Profile, and then select Delete or Deactivate. The new feature should reach everyone soon. So, make sure to update the app to the latest version. That’s not all though. Adam has announced another feature.

    Options For Deleting Or Deactivating Threads Profile Separately From Instagram Account

    You can now choose not to share your Threads posts on Facebook and Instagram

    Recently, Meta introduced a feature that shares the posts that you make on Threads on your Facebook and Instagram profiles. Many people were uncomfortable with this feature. That’s why, Meta is now rolling out a way for people to “opt out of being featured outside Threads.” You can opt out of this feature by going to Settings » Privacy.
