Instagram Follows the tracks of Facebook, WhatsApp and Messenger

Instagram now shows to your friends when you're online - here's how to turn it off (disable it)

For a long time, Instagram has been a safe space for social avoidance - you can go on the app and as long as you did not like or post pictures you could scroll down to your heart's content without a friend to ask why you could trawl Instagram but do not send them a message.
But Instagram has now decided to follow in the footsteps of Facebook, WhatsApp and Messenger by adding a feature that tells friends when you were last online for a few flawless filtered salads.
But it's not all bad news: information is only shared with people you've left secret or tagged in an Instagram story, and better yet, you can unsubscribe.Opt out
If you really do not want anyone to know how often you were on Instagram, turning off the "last active" feature is simply a matter of going to your profile page and heading to the "Options" menu.
You can get this on Android by tapping the three vertical buttons in the right upper-right profile, while on iOS you'll see a tooth icon next to "Edit Profile" that you'll need to press.

From there, you will be able to scroll through the settings where you will find an option to "Show Activity Status" halfway. Drag it with panic as the situation warrants and your problem is solved.

It is important to note that once you deactivate your own activity status, you will not be able to see anyone else, but that seems fair to us.
