The Twitter competitor Threads app has taken the internet by storm. It broke the record of ChatGPT and became the fastest app to reach 100 million users by completing this milestone in just a week. In our previous guides on Thread, we showed you how to create a Threads account and how to switch between multiple Threads accounts. In this guide, we will show you how to hide your Threads badge from your Instagram profile.

Hide Threads badge from your Instagram profile

When you use your Instagram account to sign up for Threads, the app adds a Threads badge number to your Instagram profile. Instagram users can tap on your Threads badge to open your Threads profile. While this is a convenient way to port your Instagram followers to Threads, if you don’t want that to happen, you can choose to hide your Threads badge. Here’s how to do it.

1. Launch the Instagram app on your phone and open the Profile tab.
