By default, Instagram users will see when was the last time you were active on Instagram. You might want to be able to check your feed peacefully, send a few DMs, and not let people know that you were there.

If you don't want to show when you're online, you can turn off your Activity Status on Instagram. It's quick and simple. Here's how to do it:


  1. Open your Instagram app on Android or iOs — Log in
  2. Go to your profile by tapping your profile picture at the bottom

3. Tap the menu icon in the top right

4. Tap "Settings"

5. Tap the "Privacy" item

6. Tap "Activity Status"

7. Turn off "Show Activity Status" to prevent people from seeing when you're online on Instagram

Done! This won't allow accounts you follow and anyone you message to see when you were last active on Instagram. Keep in mind that you won't be able to see when other users are or were online. Seems like a fair deal.
