Instagram’s integration with the Threads app has introduced an exciting new feature for users: the Threads badge. While it is useful in determining whether a user is using the Threads app by looking at their Instagram profile, some users oppose the decision and want to remove it from their Instagram profile. In this article, you will learn how you can remove or hide the Threads badge on Instagram.
How to Remove the Threads Badge on Instagram?
Instagram users will find a Threads sign displayed on their profile after setting up their Threads accounts. This badge, denoted by a number next to the Threads logo, is located below the user’s name.
By tapping on the badge, users get directed immediately to their Threads profile, allowing for easy navigation. If individuals want to hide the Threads badge, they can do so easily by following the simple steps mentioned below:
1. Open the Instagram app and go to your profile page by tapping on your profile icon at the bottom-right side.
2. Here, you will see the Threads badge under your name; tap on it.
3. Choose “Hide badge” in the “View Threads profile” section.
4. Finally, click on “Remove badge” to hide the Threads badge from your profile.
Note: It’s necessary to note that once you hide or remove the Threads badge from your profile, you can’t add it back. This is an irreversible action, so be sure it matches your preferences before going.
