Turn your Instagram Activity Status on or off
When your Activity Status is on, people you follow and anyone you message will see when you were last active or currently active on Instagram. You can turn your Activity status on or off at any time.
To turn your Activity Status on or off:
  1. Click your profile picture in the top right, then click settingsSettings.
  2. Click Privacy and Security, then click to uncheck the box next to Show Activity Status.
If your activity status is on, a or a timestamp that shows when you were last active will be visible next to your profile picture in Instagram Direct. You can also choose to share if you’re currently active in a chat.
Keep in mind that when you turn off your Activity status, you won't see when accounts who follow you or accounts you have direct conversations with are active, were recently active or currently active in the same chat as you. You also won’t be able to see anyone else’s Activity status.
