Step 1: Go to your Threads profile

Head to your profile and click on the double line icon in the top right hand corner. It’s the icon to the right of the Instagram logo.


Step 2: Click “Notifications”

Now you’re in the ‘settings’ page, you’ll find “Notifications” under ‘Follow and invite friends”.


Step 3: Hit “Pause all”

Here, you need to figure out exactly what you want to do with your notifications. Do you want to pause them for a fixed period of time? If so, you can stop notifications for 15 mins, one hour, two hours, four hours, and eight hours. After that, things will go back to the way they were.


Step 4: Hit “Threads and replies”

If you want something a bit more permanent, you can select the option of hiding specific notifications indefinitely. You can turn off notifications for likes, replies, mentions, reposts, quotes, and first threads.


Step 5: Change your notifications for “Following and followers”

If you want to stop getting notified every time someone starts following you (which is happening a lot right now!), then you’ll need to go into the “Following and followers” page and turn off notifications there. You can stop alerts for new followers, accepted follow requests, account suggestions, and pre-followed users joining Threads.
