Instagram Added “Last Active” Feature: Here’s How to Disable it!


Instagram recently added a new feature “Last Active” which tells to people that you had chat with or who you follow about the time when you were last active on Instagram. It is sort of similar to “Last Seen” feature on Whatsapp.


It is a good feature for those who would like their contacts to know about their availability on Instagram but it gets weird when you are trying to avoid someone’s DM and they get to know that you are active but not responding. So, this feature is certainly creepy for those who love their privacy.


Last active is enabled for everyone by default but the good thing is, you can always disable it to enjoy your privacy.
