How to sing up

Step 1: Download the Threads app.

On either your Android, open the Google Play store. Search “Threads, an Instagram app” and hit download. The app is free. (You can also find a direct link in your Instagram app — tap the three lines in the top right corner to open Settings, then click “Threads”, which will take you to your app store.

Step 2: Log in

Once you download the app, open it and press the “Log in with Instagram” button at the bottom of your screen. Since Instagram account is required to use Threads, users are presented with the option to follow people they follow on Instagram.

You can switch between Instagram accounts, choosing which one to use, if necessary.

Step 3: Create your profile

from there, you’ll be asked to create a profile, with a picture, a bio, and the option to add links. You can also import your info from Instagram, so whatever is in your current Instagram profile automatically migrates to Threads.

Step 4: Decide whether you want your profile to be public or private.

Threads will then ask you to choose between public and private profiles. With a public account, anyone on or off Threads can see your content. If private, your account will only be available to approved followers.
