How to unhide or show Threads badge on Instagram profile
Currently, there is no known way to show or unhide the Threads badge on your Instagram profile once you have removed it. However, Instagram does offer a solution by allowing you to include a link to your Threads account in your Instagram bio.
After all, the purpose of the Threads badge is to make your followers know that you are on Threads and send them to your Instagram Threads profile when they click on the badge. Adding a link to your Threads account in your Instagram bio serves the same purpose effectively.
Here is how to show or unhide the Threads badge on your Instagram profile:
- Go to your Instagram profile and tap "Edit Profile"
- Tap "Links" > "Add external link"
- Enter the following in the "URL" field: threads.net/@your username
- Once done, tap "Done"
Once you've completed the process, a direct link to your Threads account will be visible on your Instagram profile, making it easy for your followers to find you on this new platform.
Although it may not be the exact solution you anticipated, it serves the purpose effectively. Also, if it makes you any better, Instagram has mentioned that the Threads badge is temporary, meaning it will naturally disappear from your profile anyway.
On the bright side, the link we've established will remain indefinitely, offering a permanent means for your followers to access your Threads account and stay connected with you over time.
