Instagram 'Last Active' feature can be turned off using this button

Instagram Stories to get ‘Type’ and screenshot notification features

Instagram has a new feature that tells your friends and followers when you were last checking the app. Then just turn it off in the "Show Activity Status" option.

The app has quietly introduced a new feature called "Last Active" that shows friends the last time you logged on to the app according to DailyMail. The chat page shows the last seen of the user on the top with its name and profile picture. If you turn off your Activity Status, you won't be able to see other people's either.

Do note, however, that the Activity Status is a two-way street - you'll need to share in order to see. This "Show Activity Status", also found on sister platforms Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, is located next to profile images in direct messages and turned on by default.

It appears they're peaking at just the right time. "There's going to be some point when we all finish playing this game", he said. Foles started off his career as a backup to Michael Vick and was tutored by Doug Pederson , the Eagles quarterbacks coach.

Meanwhile, Instagram is now testing a feature that will snitch on you if you snap a screenshot of someone's Story, WABetaInfo reported this week. Instagram, however, did not have such feature up until now.

Facebook Stories, a separate Messenger app, etc., are some of the irritating features that nobody asked from Facebook. The new Activity Status feature is a part of the Direct section. If they are not, you will see when they were last active. If they are looking at a profile of someone who follows them but they don't follow, the profile will show "follow back" option instead of just 'follow'.

Twitter user @emilysarpietro slammed the new feature, saying "nothing's private any more" and promising she would be "definitely coming off social media soon". The feature is only accessible in the Direct inbox though, so it won't be displayed in the main app to all followers.
