How to Delete Your Threads Account Without Deleting Your Instagram?


Threads is a messaging app developed by Instagram that allows users to communicate with their close friends. While Threads can be a convenient tool for staying connected, you may find yourself wanting to delete your Threads account without affecting your Instagram account. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to delete your Threads account while keeping your Instagram intact.

Step 1: Open the Threads App

To begin the process, open the Threads app on your mobile device. You can find the app’s icon on your home screen or in your app drawer. Tap on the icon to launch the app.

Step 2: Access Settings

Once you have opened the Threads app, locate the profile icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and tap on it. This will take you to your Threads profile page. On this page, you will see a three-dot menu icon in the top right corner. Tap on this icon to access the settings menu.

Step 3: Navigate to Account Settings

In the settings menu, you will find various options related to your Threads account. Scroll down until you see the “Account” section. Tap on “Account” to proceed to the account settings.

Step 4: Delete Threads Account

Within the account settings, you will see a “Delete Account” option. Tap on this option to initiate the account deletion process.

A confirmation prompt will appear, asking if you are sure you want to delete your Threads account. Read the prompt carefully and make sure you understand the consequences of deleting your account. If you are certain, tap on “Delete” to proceed.

Step 5: Confirm Deletion

After tapping “Delete,” you will be prompted to enter your Instagram password to confirm the deletion. This step is in place to ensure that only the account owner can delete the account. Enter your Instagram password and tap on “Confirm” to complete the deletion process.

Step 6: Account Deletion Complete

Once you have confirmed the deletion, your Threads account will be permanently deleted. You will no longer have access to your account, and all your messages and data associated with Threads will be removed.

It is important to note that deleting your Threads account will not delete your Instagram account. Your Instagram account will remain active and unaffected by the deletion of your Threads account.


If you no longer wish to use Threads and want to delete your account, you can do so without deleting your Instagram account. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can easily delete your Threads account while keeping your Instagram intact.
