How to Hide Your Instagram Activity Status on Android and iOS


Instagram is one of the most popular social media apps in the world. The social media platform lets you share stories, post photos, share videos and reels, and much more. Users can also consume content on the Platform and chat with others through direct messages.

Parent company Meta, which apart from Instagram also owns Facebook and WhatsApp, wants to provide its users with a similar and consistent experience across its apps. That said, Instagram also has activity status similar to WhatsApp. Users who chat or follow others can see whether they are online or offline.

Whatever the reason, luckily, Instagram allows you to hide your activity status. In this article, let us see how you can hide your Instagram online status and still browse the platform.
