Threads finally adds option to let users easily switch between accounts

Meta has been trying to add much-requested features to Threads as quickly as possible. After launching keyword search earlier this month, the latest update to the Threads app now finally lets users switch between different accounts without having to log out and log in again.

Switch between different accounts in the Threads app

The new feature was announced by the official Threads profile on the social network and is now available to users with the latest version of the app. Similar to what users can already do in the Instagram app, Threads users can now tap and hold on the profile button in the tab bar to open the new menu for switching between accounts.

When you do this for the first time, you’ll see the “Add profile” option to log in with another account. After that, the Threads app will store the credentials of your other account, so you can easily choose which one to use.
