The Threads app is a messaging app developed by Facebook for users who want to keep in touch with their closest friends and share their status. It allows users to share photos, videos, messages, stories, and more.

When you use Threads, you can switch between private and public accounts to control who can see and interact with your content. You can also choose who can @mention you to link your profile in their threads, replies, or bio.

The default options are [Everyone], [Profiles you follow], and [No one].

Choosing who can @mention you in the Threads app can help you maintain your privacy and control who can link your profile in their threads, replies, or bio. When you have a public account, anyone on the app can @mention you, while private accounts only allow people you’ve approved to @mention you.
