Instagram has built out a new feature which is found in numerous popular apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, and Messenger. So for any of you who have the test feature on you Insta app, here's a very simple way to hide it.
Allow accounts you follow and anyone you message to see when you were last active on Instagram apps. The new "show activity status" is turned on by default from the inside setting of Instagram but it can be even toggled off if one wants to. After all, what's the harm in people knowing when you were last on Instagram? Instagram does not allow you to disable this like you can in WhatsApp and we will just have to wait till a future update addresses this. You can access Direct by swiping right on the homepage and the list of friends who have been chatting with you in past will show on the next page. The only way to see how long ago you were active on Instagram can only be done in the direct messages section. If they are not, you will see when they were last active.
Scrolling down through the options the "show activity status" option is below other options such as language and vibration customisation. Concealing your status from friends and followers conjointly blocks you from snooping on their statuses as well.
Until now, Instagram's Stories shows images and videos.
Turn it off, and the fact that you check your Instagram every five minutes will remain a private matter.More news: Mattis Issues Guidance as Federal Government Shuts Down

It's worth noting that once you turn off your own activity status you won't be able to see anyone else's either, but this seems like a fair trade off to us.
So folks, this is what Instagram is adding for millions of its users.
The new feature has been enabled on Thursday for iOS and Android devices.
However, that has all changed since IG released a new feature. But that's okay. You're not the spying kind, are you?
