The “instagram Last seen” time stamp on can be very annoying, especially if you don’t want a person disturbing you with messages you don’t want to read just yet. If the time stamp is on, then a person can know if they’ve sent a message since say 10:00am, its still unread by you even though your instagram last seen shows you came online 5 mins ago. You see how that little feature can cause trouble.
So here is how to easily turn it off: A picture contains a thousand words.
Step 1: Go to the 3 dots at the top right on your IG app
Step 2: Scroll down through the settings to the end of the page. Click on the ‘Show Activity Status’ button. This automatically removes your Last Seen timestamp on Instagram.
