With social media around, we are constantly exposed to the public about what our private lives look like, so holding on to the smallest chance of having some privacy is really important for most of us.
Since Instagram implemented the Activity Status feature, which shows your followers whether you’re online on Instagram at the moment or when you were last seen on the app, it became equally important to be able to turn off this same feature.
For those not willing to share this information with their virtual friends, even though it’s set as a default setting on Instagram to show your activity status, turning it off can be done in a few easy clicks.
Turning off your online status on Instagram is quite simple and we’ll guide you through the entire process step by step, just bear in mind that turning off your activity status means you will not be able to see anyone else’s activity status either.
Instagram has a built-in calculator, giving you weekly reports with exact data about how many minutes/hours you spent on the app during a day, and an average calculation throughout the week.
However, turning your activity off will not cause Instagram to stop calculating how much time you spent on the app or give you your average time spent stats.
Having detailed info into how much time you spend daily using an app, together with the average hours is really helpful to keep track of your productivity throughout the day. Instagram also offers setting daily limits, taking a break, and temporarily deactivating your account so you can take a breather from social media for a while.
