People Can Now See When You Are On Instagram And Here’s How to Change It

By on January 19, 2018

Instagram has rolled out a new update that lets people see when you were last active on the in the direct messages section of the app.
Your activity status, i.e., when you were last online will now be visible to people whom you follow and whom you follow back along with people to whom you have privately messaged.


In case you wanted to scroll through your feed of delicious food platters, travel photographs and friend’s shenanigans in peace without being drawn into another friendly chat, worry no more.

To turn off this update, just go to your profile and click on options. Now, scroll down to settings and touch to turn off “Show Activity Status”. Once you have turned off this feature, you won’t be able to see other people’s activity status and the accounts you follow as well as the people you have privately messaged won’t be able to see your activity status.
