How to See Who Follows You on Meta Threads


If your Meta Threads account is public, anyone on the platform has the ability to follow you. It’s important to keep an eye on who is following you, because those people are more likely to be served your posts in their feed. And while this is generally fine, if you don’t want someone to follow you on Threads you do have the option to remove them and they won’t be notified, but they can easily follow you again if they want to. As a result, the only way to keep someone from following you is to block them. In this video I’ll show you how to see who follows you on Threads, and how to remove or block them if you need to.
