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.

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.
