If you're looking to seamlessly connect with your Instagram followers on Threads, you need to add Threads link to your Instagram bio.
While Instagram has a Threads badge which tells your followers that you are on Threads, many users may opt to remove or hide their Threads badge for some reason. Since it is impossible to show or unhide the Threads badge once it has been removed, adding a link to Thread in the Instagram bio seems their only option to signal the followers.
In this guide, we'll walk you through the step-by-step process of adding a Threads link to your Instagram bio, ensuring that your followers are not only aware of your presence on Threads.
How to add Threads link to your Instagram bio
Adding a link to your Threads account in your Instagram bio lets your followers know you have signed up for Instagram Threads and easily directs them to your Threads profile with just one click.
Here is how to add a Threads link to your Instagram bio:
- Go to your Instagram profile and tap "Edit Profile"
- Tap "Links" > "Add external link"
- Enter the following in the "URL" field:
- For example: threads.net/@zuck
- Once done, tap "Done"
Once you've completed the process, a link to your Threads account will appear in your Instagram bio, making it easy for your followers to find you on this new text-based conversation platform.
How do I get my Threads badge back?
Unfortunately, there is no way to get your Threads badge back once it has been removed or hidden. However, there are alternative ways to promote your presence on Threads.
You can add a clickable link to your Threads account in your Instagram bio. This link serves the same purpose as the Threads badge, informing your followers that you are active on Threads and allowing them to easily access your account by clicking the link.
It may also provide some consolation to know that the original Instagram Threads badge is temporary and will naturally disappear within a few weeks. So don't cry over hiding it. Instead, use the instructions here to add a Threads link to your Instagram bio.
