Beware, Instagram addicts! Your favourite photo-sharing app also shows when you were last active to your friends. The “Activity Status” function of Instagram, like that of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, shows when you last used the programme. Although it is off by default on your Instagram account, it is always a good idea to be cautious. Let’s have a look at how it works and then see how to disable it.
The status option shows who you’ve DM’d, when you were last active, and whether or not you’re now active. Only people you follow and have interacted with will be able to see your activity. If you are followed by someone but do not follow them back, they will most likely be unable to observe your behaviour. Your friends are in the same boat as you. You can tell if they’re still online if they follow you. You can see the status of your followers in your DMs.
