Can You Use Instagram Threads Without an Instagram Account?

Unfortunately, you cannot currently use Threads without having an Instagram account.

This is because your Threads account is linked to and created from the Instagram account that you are logged in to on your device’s Instagram app.

As such, if you do not have an Instagram account, you will not be able to use Threads at all.

There are some signs that in the future you may be able to use Threads without an Instagram app, but this is not something that is currently possible at the moment.

This is because of Meta’s efforts to have a collection of platforms where users’ accounts are all linked to one another –– how your Facebook is linked to your Instagram, which is linked to your Threads.
