How do I see who's active on Instagram?
You can see when accounts you follow and anyone you message were last active or are currently active on Instagram. You can also see when you’re currently active in the same chat as them.
There are a few ways to see when someone's active on Instagram:
  • You'll see a green dot next to their username and photo in your direct inbox and other places on Instagram.
  • In your direct inbox, you'll see their most recent activity status (example: Active 25m ago, Active yesterday, Seen, Typing...).
  • When you open the conversation, you'll also be able to see activity (example: In the chat, In the camera).
If you don't want people to see when you're active on Instagram, you can turn off your Activity Status.
