Hide replies you don’t want to see on Threads
There are a few ways you can hide replies to your posts on Threads that contain potentially offensive, misleading or spam content.
Manually hide replies on your thread
To hide a reply directly from your thread:
Threads app for Android and iPhone
  1. Tap more next to a reply.
  2. Tap Hide for everyone.
Hidden replies are moved to a covered section at the bottom of your thread. A reply that you have manually hidden is only visible to you and the person who wrote the reply. You can view hidden replies by scrolling to the bottom of a thread and tapping See all. From your hidden replies, you can unhide a reply by tapping more next to the reply and then tapping Unhide.
Automatically hide offensive content and spam
You can also choose to automatically hide replies on your threads that don’t go against Instagram’s Community Guidelines, but may be inappropriate, disrespectful, or offensive (example: racial slurs, curse words or scams) by using Hidden Words settings. These settings include:
  • Offensive words and phrases: Replies to your posts that contain common words, phrases or emojis that may be offensive, misleading or spam will be automatically moved to a covered section at the bottom of your thread. Anyone can view these replies in the covered section, and you can unhide them at any time. This setting is on by default, but you can change it any time.
  • Custom words and phrases: Replies on your threads that include words, phrases, numbers or emojis you’ve added to your custom words list will be filtered so that only the person who replied and their followers will be able to see the person’s reply. This setting will not filter replies from people you follow. This setting is off by default, but you can change it and edit the list at any time. Note: your list of custom words and phrases is the same for Instagram and Threads.
To manage hidden words from the Threads app:
  1. Tap profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap settings in the top right.
  3. Tap privacy settings Privacy, then tap hide Hidden Words.
  4. From here you can:
    • Tap select next to On or Off below a setting.
    • Tap Manage custom words and phrases and type the words, phrases or emoji you want to hide. Tap Add to add each custom word and phrase to your list.
Note that your Hidden Words settings only apply to:
  • Replies posted after you turn on a setting or you’ve added words to your custom words and phrases list.
  • Replies on threads you post.
