How do I turn off my Activity Status on Instagram?
People you follow or have direct conversations with can see when you're active, were recently active or currently active in the same chat on Instagram. You can change the visibility of your Activity Status at any time.
To change the visibility of your Activity Status:
Instagram app for Android and iPhone:
  1. Tap instagram-user-profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap three lines stacked on top of each other in the top right, then tap a symbol circle gearSettings.
  3. Tap Privacy, then tap Activity Status.
  4. From here tap next to:
    • Show Activity Status to hide your activity status. Other accounts on Instagram won’t be able to see when you were last active or currently active on Instagram. You also won’t be able to see anyone else’s activity status. Turning this setting off will also turn off Show When You’re Active Together.
    • Show When You’re Active Together to hide your activity status in direct message chats. You won’t see when you and accounts you message are active in the same chat.
Instagram.com from a computer:
  1. Click your profile picture in the top right corner, then click Settings.
  2. Click Privacy and Security, then click to uncheck the box next to Show Activity Status.
Instagram.com from a mobile browser:
  1. Tap your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap Settings in the top left.
  3. Tap Privacy and Security, then tap to uncheck the box next to Show Activity Status.
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.
