Can I use Threads without an Instagram account?

No, you cannot use Threads without an Instagram account. Threads is a standalone app, but it is still connected to Instagram. When you create a Threads account, you are prompted to log in with your Instagram account. This allows Threads to access your Instagram friends list and other data.

If you do not have an Instagram account, you cannot create a Threads account. You can create a separate Instagram account for Threads, but this is not necessary. You can also use the Instagram app to send direct messages to your close friends, which is similar to what Threads does.

Here are some of the reasons why Threads is connected to Instagram:

  • To make it easier for people to find and connect with their close friends on Threads.
  • To allow Threads to use Instagram’s features, such as Stories and Live.
  • To allow Threads to collect data about your usage, which can be used to improve the app.

If you are concerned about your privacy, you can create a separate Instagram account for Threads and use a different username and password. You can also turn off the “Share to Story” option in Threads, which will prevent your posts from being shared to your Instagram Story.
