Are 'intrude' and 'intrude into' different? Intrude means meddle but intrude into is like impede?

Intrude can mean meddle, but it’s meaning is more to go into or place yourself into a place or situation where you are not wanted or invited.
You can intrude into someone’s house if you go inside without permission. That’s not meddling it’s trespassing.
You can intrude if you offer unwanted advice, that might be described as meddling.
I don’t see much of a difference between ‘intrude’ and ‘ intrude into’, except that the latter is slightly stronger.
