How to deactivate your Threads account

Go to the Threads app on your phone.
Tap on your account icon in the bottom right corner.
Tap on the settings menu icon in the top right corner.
Tap on the “Account” option.
Tap on the “Deactivate Profile” option, then tap on the “Deactivate Threads profile” button that appears at the bottom of the screen.

Keep in mind that this step will not permanently delete your data from Meta’s servers. It will remain stored and ready for indexing if you decide to reactivate your account. However, at least your account will not be available to the public, and it won’t appear in search results. This step also allows you to reactivate your account at any time simply by logging in again.
