How To Get Rid Of Instagram's Creepy New 'Active' Status Feature

It has also been made clear that not every follower in your Instagram account will be included in this status visibility feature. Now Instagram has joined the bandwagon with a similar feature, called Activity Status. It has started rolling out on both Android and iOS apps of Instagram with the latest update.

From the direct messages screen, the feature will allow people to see when you last used Instagram.

Well, the Active Status Feature has to be enabled in order to view the status timing and all of the followers and the friends of yours on Instagram.

I Get More Exercise Than People Think
Eric Trump said it was " very sad" that his father's critics would continue to demonize the president, even if he cured cancer. He described Trump as mentally "sharp and intact", despite the president getting little more than five hours of sleep a night.

Facebook owned Instagram is world's most popular and everyone's favourite photo sharing and video sharing platform. Deactivating the feature also deactivates the ability for the user to see the activity status of any other people. But while the activity status feature is already there, you can still do something about it by disabling it. All you need to do is scroll down to the "show activity status" option, which is below other options such as vibration customization and language.

Other than this massive shift, Instagram is also planning to introduce a new text-only format in Stories.

Unlike Facebook, you can turn this function off, so thank goodness for that. According to TheNextWeb, the new feature would allow users to select from different backgrounds, fonts, and even apply filters. We have learnt that the feature is now available only for a few select users, albeit on both Android and iOS. However, should you turn it off, then you can't see anyone who has looked at your profile and they can't see when you look at their profile either. Meanwhile, if you have anything more to share, kindly let us know in the comments section given below this post.
