To post, like, comment and share, you need to sign up for Instagram Threads. But currently, it is not possible to sign up for Threads without Instagram since Threads is intricately connected to Instagram and relies on your Instagram account for operation.

To sign up for Threads, a separate login method independent of Instagram is unavailable. The platform relies exclusively on your existing Instagram account credentials for logging you in.

Regrettably, this may come as disappointing news for individuals without an Instagram account who are eagerly looking to utilize Threads. However, it is the reality of the situation.

You have two options to use Threads

There are two options available to use Instagram Threads.

The first option is to create an Instagram account solely for the purpose of using Threads, which can be done in just a few minutes.

The second option is to view or read Instagram Threads through the official website, which does not require you to log in or provide any credentials.


However, it's important to note that using the website has its limitations. You won't be able to engage in activities such as posting, commenting, liking, or sharing content.

To fully experience and engage with Threads, creating an Instagram account and accessing Threads through it is necessary. Just keep in mind that, you need to delete your Instagram account to delete your Threads account.
