Meta has been facing criticism for not offering this feature since Threads launched in July. Many users were unhappy that they had to delete their entire Instagram account in order to delete their Threads account.

In a statement to TechCrunch, Meta said that it is "working on launching the actual deletion feature of a Threads account by December." The company said that it deliberated a lot about how to tackle deletion requests at the beginning, as it was technically challenging to separate the two accounts at launch.

Meta also said that it is committed to giving users control over their data and privacy. The company said that the new account deletion feature will allow users to "delete their Threads account without impacting their Instagram account, or vice versa."

The new account deletion feature is a welcome change for many users. It will give them more control over their data and privacy, and it will make it easier for them to delete their Threads account if they no longer want to use it.
