The team of photo service Instagram has launched a new feature — in app for iOS and Android began to display the status of user activity.
New option “Show activity status” is enabled by default inside the settings of Instagram.
Now the people with whom you have previously corresponded, you can see when you last used the app. Function is implemented in the same way as in Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. To track the status of the user can only those to whom he is signed, not the subscribers.
Interestingly, if you corresponded with a closed account, which is then unsubscribed from you, you will still be visible when that user was online.
Since the official announcement was not likely a function of still in testing and may not be available for all users. The function is active by default in the app settings, if you wish, you can disable it manually. In this case, the online status of other users will also be unavailable to you.

Open the app Instagram.
Go to your Profile.
Click on the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the screen (icon or the three dots).
Scroll down to Show Activity Status (in Settings) and press the switch to white.
