After a few miserable months at Twitter, Mark Zuckerberg just gave the world a new cool Twitter, known as Threads (nice wordplay, Mark.)
It has been around 24 hours, and already more than 50 million people have hopped on to the Threads. Considering you were one of them, who loved the whole threading experience, but now want to get off the Threads? Well, the obvious more would be to delete your Threads account, but you can’t do that deleting your profile is not the best option if you want to start a new or if Threads isn’t you cup of tea. What then?
Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, shared on Threads that Meta is aware of the issue is working on a solution to allow users to delete their Threads account independently.
Threads is powered by Instagram, so right now it’s just one account separately, Mosseri said in Thread if you want to hide your profile and threads, you can deactivate your Threads account.
To deactivate your Threads Profile, go to your profile tab, click the two lines icon for setting, select Account, choose. Deactivate profile, and click Deactivate Threads Profile button. It is important to note that this will not deactivate your Instagram account. Also, it is a temporary action – while your profiles, threads replies and likes will be hidden, your account will be reactivated once you log bakc in.
You can also set your profile to private, so only your followers can read your threads, Or else delete individual threads.
You can’t just simply sign up for a Threads Account using an email or phone number. Although, you can use a different number or email address that is not connected to your instagram account, keeping that two platforms separate.

Mosseri also confirmed that the company is working on bringing some of the missing features to the app. These include a following tab hashtags, support for fediverse (a social network of different servers operated by third parties is how Meta explain it), and messaging capabilities.
