Make sure you are completing the step of adding it through the Links section. If you try to copy and paste the link straight to your Instagram bio, it will not load correctly.

Once the link has been added, people are now able to access your Threads profile directly from your Instagram bio. If you have added it to a private Instagram account, the link will not be visible.

Keep in mind, Instagram allows you to add up to five external links to your profile. You will not be allowed to link your Threads profile if you already exceed that limit. A great shortcut to this would be to link a Linktree account, which allows you to have unlimited links in the form of just one.

Also, make sure that you have actually downloaded the Threads app. Even though it is owned by Instagram, you still need to download the app and create a separate profile to be able to use it.

To access Threads for the first time, there are two ways to go about it. One way is to go to your Instagram settings and click the Threads tab. The second way is to go onto your app store, manually search for Threads, and download it to your device.
