How to hide your activity status on Instagram?

Surfing Instagram privately when you are trying to avoid someone is something that a lot of people want to do. But the thing is, not many people know how to do it, considering that they are not tech geeks.

But lucky for you, you have us and we are here to help you out in using Instagram silently without having to worry about people knowing that you are using it.


Here’s what you need to do

Step one: Open or download the Instagram application

The first thing that you want to do is download the Instagram application and open it. You want to login in so you can do it. Remember, you only get to do this when you are using your smartphone. Download the application on App Store or Google Play.

Step 2: Open your profile

The second thing that you want to do is open your profile. After you login, you will be on the feed page of Instagram, all you need to do is click on the last button that is present in the bottom right corner of your screen.

Step 3: Click the 3 dots or 3 lines

The third thing that you need to do is click on the 3 dots or 3 lines that are present on the top right corner of your screen after you open the profile page of Instagram. This is how you can access the settings page of the application.

Step 4: Click settings

After clicking the 3 dots or 3 lines that appear on the top right corner of your profile page, you want to click on the word settings.

Step 5: Search activity status

We are going to go the easy way, the search way. Instead of one by one finding the switch button, you want to search “activity status” on the search bar that appears on the middle of the page after clicking on settings.

Step 6: Click on activity status

The last thing that you want to do is click on the activity status that pops out on the screen. After clicking it, click the toggle button that there is. Turning it on means people can see when you were last using the application. Turning it off means no one can see when you are using it.


What else can you do to hide yourself?


If you want to browse secretly, you want to turn of the activity status, avoid liking pictures that are uploaded by users that have mutuals with you, and posting stories.
