This is how it works at the moment: if you messaged someone in the past, they will be able to see when you are online / active on Instagram.

They will see under your name, in the Direct Messages:  “Active 10 minutes ago”.

Good news: you can turn this off if you don’t want people to know when you are on Instagram.

This is how:

1. Go in your Instagram settings

2. Select “Activity status”

3. Turn off “Show activity status”


That’s it!
