How To Stop Instagram From Telling Everyone You're Online

Instagram is continuing to build out its messaging section with a new feature that's already found in popular apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

That could lead to issues if that person decides that you're ignoring their message, though that may not be the case - some things just can't be answered in the moment, after all. The new Activity Status is enough to give Instagram addicts even more anxiety.

Instagram has a new feature that tells your friends when you were last checking the app, and it's turned on by default.

For those of you who find this addition somewhat intrusive, thankfully it's not hard to disable. You can choose to toggle it off if you don't think anyone really needs to be that up-to-date on what you're doing.

Did your crush just read your DM (you'll know because it says "seen" underneath the message) and not respond? The times are quite granular; you can see up to the minute or hour when some signed on most recently, while people currently on Instagram are simply labelled as "Active Now". Fortunately, the company has given its users the ability to disable the activity status, making it possible to stop others from snooping on your habits.

I'm generally fine with apps indicating when you were last active. Instagram is also guilty of the latter; DMs always show as "seen" once recipients have opened them.
