If you are one of those who started trying Threads, and then realized that there is no way to get rid of the account without also deleting the Instagram account, it will help you to know that Meta is already working on a solution.
For now, you’ll have to settle for deactivating the account if you no longer want to use it, but you may soon have the option to delete it. We tell you the details.
How to delete Threads account
At the moment, there is no way to permanently delete the Threads account without affecting the Instagram account. Although they are apps that you install on your mobile independently, Threads depends on Instagram.
Therefore, you may have noticed that the only way to have a Threads account is to create it with your Instagram account. While this dynamic made it easy to quickly join Threads, it has become a problem when you want to delete the account.
Some solutions that have been proposed for those who do not want to continue using Threads are to deactivate the account, or set it to private. Of course, this is a temporary solution until Meta finally implements the ability to independently delete the Threads account.
Meta will launch the option to delete an account on Threads in the coming months
A solution that could arrive in December, as the Instagram team has mentioned to TC. Let us remember that Adam Mosseri had already addressed this topic a few months ago, mentioning that they were working on different dynamics so that the apps can work independently, and that users have the freedom to delete their Threads accounts at any time.
Meta is apparently already testing this feature, as shown in Alessandro Paluzzi ‘s screenshots, although we’ll have to wait until the end of the year to see it in the app.
Meanwhile, Meta has continued to release updates for Threads with new features, for example, options that make it easier to follow topics that interest us or use multiple profiles without logging out.
