Instagram active status is a default function that displays the time of your last activity on the platform to fellow users automatically. When you're online, this information becomes visible.
While this is good, it may be a bit too much if you prefer not to respond instantly to messages and wish to prevent others from feeling ignored. In this instance, you may want to turn off your active status, to tune down your online presence trail.
In this guide, we will walk you through how to turn off your active status on Instagram via the mobile application, web or desktop.
