How to know someone is online on Instagram?
The Instagram has added a new feature similar to the ”last seen” on WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, which shows the latest activity of your friends next to their name, this feature not only displays the latest usage of the app but also displays its online status.
You can see the status of the last activity in the direct message. This ability to see your friends’ online status on the Instagram makes it easier than ever. This option is turned on for all accounts, by default, but if you do not want someone to know you are online, you can easily make it disable.
Previously, you could see the last activities of the others on the posts that he liked and the comments he made. But this information is not accurate at all for the last time you visit the app.
With the latest update, you can see the last-seen and online accounts that you have previously talked to them in Direct.
Update your app and follow the steps below.
- Open the application and go straight to the direct message Drag the home screen to the left or click the paper plane icon on the top right of the page.
- Here, you can see the last-seen visitors you’ve talked about before using their username. And it’s shown: Active x hours ago, Active x minutes ago, or Active now.
As everyone else can see your last visit, you can also see when the rest is online.
You cannot see the last person who disables this activity.
If you disable this feature, you will not be able to see the last activity of others like the last-seen feature in WhatsApp.
