How to Appear Offline on Instagram?

- Advertisement - data-full-width-responsive="false">

If you’re the type of person who loves to stay off the radar when surfing the internet especially the social media, then you will want to know more about Instagram’s latest activity status feature. Recently, Instagram rolled out an update which will enable your followers and those you have messaged privately to see when you are active and for how long you have been online.

You have now been given an “activity status” which can track how many minutes or hours you’ve been online since you last logged into Instagram and when you log back in, it also shows when you are currently online. If you are active, your status will appear as “active now”. This information can only be seen by only people who you follow and those you have messaged privately. It is nice that Instagram does not show this to everybody especially those personalities who have over a million followers, but it still feels a bit intimate.

If you want to turn off this feature, here is how to do it:

1. Launch Instagram and go to your profile

2. Tap on the gear icon to move to options

3. Scroll down to “show activity status.”


4. Tap on the button that is next to it to disable the activity tracker.

When you are done with that process, it means you have turned off your activity status.

Privately surfing social media is essential for most users, while others don’t feel the same. Regardless of how you feel towards this new update, it is necessary to know what is unique about one of the most popular applications in the world.
