How to Switch Accounts in Threads App

How to Switch Accounts in Threads App

Threads - an Instagram app has taken the world by storm. Within a few days of launch, the app has garnered over 70 million account sign-ups, which is mind blowing. We have already covered how users can sign up and use threads, which you can read by clicking on the link. In this guide, we will show you how to switch accounts in the Threads app, if you have multiple accounts.

Switch accounts in Threads

There are two ways to switch accounts in Threads. You can use the Threads app to switch between multiple profiles or use the Instagram app to view your other profile. We have explained both of these methods below.

Switch accounts in Threads using the Threads app

While the Threads app doesn’t give you a profile-switching option, you can easily log out of your current account and log into another one. It only takes a few seconds.

1. Launch the Threads app on your phone and tap the profile icon in the bottom-right corner.

That’s it. Since Threads doesn’t require you to enter any password, even though it’s a few more steps, we don’t find it too inconvenient to switch between profiles.

View profiles in Threads using Instagram

You can easily view your Threads profile using your linked Instagram account. However, note that this method will only let you temporarily see the other account.

1. Launch the Instagram app on your iPhone and tap your profile icon in the bottom-right corner.

2. Tap the arrow button next to your profile name and choose the other account.

Notice that it doesn’t switch your profile in the Threads app. It only lets you view the new profile. In fact, you can go to anyone’s Instagram profile, and if they are showing the Threads badge, you can tap on it to see their profile in the Threads app.

Switch between multiple profiles on Threads

We wish there was a way to switch between different profiles in Threads without logging out, but currently, this is the option we have. Since the app is only a few days old, we hope these issues will be resolved with future updates.
