Threads website - how to use Instagram Threads on desktop

If you are looking for a way to use Instagram Threads via its website on a desktop, this guide is for you!

While Instagram Threads is primarily designed as a mobile app, many users prefer to use it on their desktop or laptop computers. Fortunately, Instagram Threads does have a desktop version, enabling users to use the platform on their PCs.

In this article, we will share details on the web version of Threads, a desktop solution that allows you to access and utilize Instagram Threads on your computer.

How to access the Instagram Threads website on desktop

To access the Instagram Threads website on your desktop, go to https://www.threads.net/.

Please note that the website currently does not provide an option to log in to your account. That means you can use Threads without Instagram via the web version of the app.

Currently, the functionality of the Instagram Threads website is limited to viewing and reading posts. To perform actions such as liking, replying, and posting, it is necessary to get the Instagram Threads app.

To read posts on the Instagram Threads website, you can simply add the username of the person at the end of the link. For instance, the format would be: https://www.threads.net/@username.

However, it's important to note that you can only view posts from individuals who have public profiles. If a user has a private profile, their posts may not be accessible through the Threads website.

You can't sign up for Instagram Threads via the website

If you are using Instagram Threads for the first time, it's crucial to keep in mind that you cannot sign up for Instagram Threads directly through the website.

Instead, you will need to download the Instagram Threads app and follow the sign-up instructions provided within the app itself. Furthermore, it goes without saying that you need an Instagram account for Threads.

As we mentioned above, the functionalities of the Instagram Threads website are very limited currently. However, there is optimism that Meta will enhance the web version by adding additional features and capabilities in the future.
