How do I add or remove my status on Threads?

To add your status on Threads:

  1. From the camera, tap at the top.
  2. Tap your profile picture at the top.
  3. You can:
    • Select one of the available statuses.
    • Create your own custom status by tapping Type a status.... Keep in mind that you must also set an emoji to set a custom status.
    • Tap next to Auto Status to allow Threads to update your status for you based on your location, movement, battery level and network connection. For example, if your phone is moving fast, an Auto Status could say you’re “on the move.” If you’re near a gym, your Auto Status might say that you’re “at the gym.” Keep in mind that close friends can’t see the exact location of these activities.
  4. Tap to close.
