Wondering how to turn off Last Seen on Instagram? Well it’s actually very easy to stop this annoying feature on your Instagram application.

Social media always find a way to breach one’s privacy don’t they?… And, a while ago they came up with the Idea on Instagram to show your Last seen to your friends just exactly like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp’s last seen activity of users.

Instagram’s last seen feature can be checked by visiting your direct messages (DM). There, you can see little timestamps showing the last time someone you chatted with visited their Instagram. The timestamps let you see up to the last minute the person used Instagram.

Instagram users of Instagram app v25 and newer will have the activity status. So if you’ve updated your app since 2017 December, you’ll have this feature active.However, Instagram users who have not updated their app, and are using v25 and older, will not be able to see their activity status at all, and neither will their followers too.
