The White-throated Antpitta has a small geographic range, but the distribution is not tiny and the population trend is believed to be stable. Consequently the IUCN Red List conservation status of White-throated Antpitta is assessed as Least Concern (BirdLife International 2012).

The relative abundance of White-throated Antpitta is rated as "fairly common" in Peru (Schulenberg et al. 2007), although a range-wide assessment is "uncommon to locally common" (Krabbe and Schulenberg 2003).

Effects of human activity on populations

Human activity has little short-term direct effect on the White-throated Antpitta, other than the local effects of habitat destruction.
