Recently Threads released a new Web version allowing users to finally search for content and use other features from any of their desktop devices. For those who still use Threads, Kaspersky experts have compiled a list of tips on how to do it securely, protect personal data, and avoid scammers.
Kaspersky experts have previously discovered phishing pages imitating the web version of the social network and collecting users’ logins and passwords, as well as offers of a so-called “Threads Coin” promising to “connect users to the Metaverse,” which was fake and sold for cryptocurrency on the Web. It is important for users to always be on alert when exploring new social media platforms.
To do this, users need to go to Settings -> Account -> Deactivate profile and press Deactivate Threads profile.
To mute, restrict or block someone, go to their profile, click on the three dots in the upper right corner and select the action.
