How to Remove ‘Threads for You’ section from Instagram

In this guide, we will be discussing a plausible method that might help you remove the ‘Threads for You’ section from Instagram. This social media platform has seen quite a meteoric rise in the last few years, all thanks to the introduction of Reels. Since then, Meta has been forever tinkering with the app, such as changing the UI/UX, adding and removing numerous features, and so on, without giving a dime about user feedback.

The latest to make its way is the addition of the ‘Threads for You’ section which tends to appear randomly in the middle of your feed. Since Threads didn’t manage to grab the attention that it initially thought it would aka the next Twitter/X, hence Meta has started aggressively pushing the contents of Threads inside Instagram itself! However, as opposed to Instagram’s Suggested Posts section, these Threads often miss the mark as they are hardly in sync with user’s preferences.

Adding salt to the wounds, there doesn’t exist any granular control through which you could disable/remove this ‘Threads for You’ section from the Instagram app. Well, at least not the native way. There does exist a nifty workaround through which you might still be able to get this job done. So without further ado, let’s check it out.
