Like Instagram, Threads has an annoying habit of refreshing your feed every time you open the app. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve lost track interesting posts on Threads after wandering away to another app or responding to a notification, and it’s annoying every time.

Well, it looks like Threads has implemented an age-old solution to help people like me—bookmarking. Yes, Meta’s X/Twitter rival finally lets you save posts to enjoy at your own pace.

How to bookmark posts on Threads

Table of Contents

Here’s how saving a post works: From within the Threads app on your smartphone, tap the three dots icon next to any post. Tap the Save button to bookmark said post. That’s it: Your bookmarked post is now saved for posterity. As of this writing, only Threads’ mobile apps allow you to bookmark posts; its website does not. Moreover, you’ll only have the functionality if you’ve updated to the latest version of the app.

To view posts you’ve saved on Threads, tap the profile icon in the bottom-right corner of the app to open your profile, then tap the two lines icon in the top-right corner to open Threads Settings. On this page, select Saved and you’ll be able to view all the posts you’ve previously bookmarked.

Saving posts on Threads is a great solution for keeping track of content, at least until the original poster decides to delete their account, removes the post, or Threads removes it for copyright violations or other issues. To guard against this, consider downloading media from Threads or taking screenshots of posts you know you’ll want to access offline.
