Threads has responded to user complaints by introducing a new privacy option, which allows users to disable the automatic sharing of Threads posts on Instagram and Facebook. Seeking to boost the popularity of its new platform Threads, Meta displayed suggested posts on other Meta-owned apps. This move triggered criticism from users, who were automatically enrolled in external sharing.
To delete an active Threads account, the associated Instagram account must be deleted. Threads documentation states that you can "deactivate your Threads profile at any time, but your Threads profile can only be deleted by deleting your Instagram account."
Threads is a text-sharing app designed by the Instagram team, offering users a dedicated space for engaging in public conversations. With Threads, users can log in using their Instagram accounts and enjoy real-time interactions on various topics. The app allows users to create profiles, customize settings, and connect with friends and creators who share their interests.
To get started with Threads, simply use your Instagram account to log in. Your username and verification will carry over, and you have the option to customize your profile exclusively for Threads.
At the current time, creating a Threads profile requires an Instagram account. While the Threads app is separate from the Instagram app, the service is built as part of Instagram, which means the two social media networks are completely linked.
Anyone with multiple Instagram accounts can also create multiple Threads profiles. All Threads profiles are accessed via the separate Threads app, although they originate from Instagram.
