How do I hide my Instagram on my iPhone?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To hide your Instagram online status on your iPhone, follow these steps:

1. Launch the Instagram app on your iPhone. You can find the Instagram app icon on your home screen.

2. Once you have opened the app, tap on the profile icon located at the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will take you to your Instagram profile page.

3. On your profile page, you will see three horizontal lines in the top-right corner of the screen. Tap on these lines, and a menu will slide out from the side.

4. In the menu, scroll down until you find the “Settings” option. Tap on it to open the Instagram settings.

5. Within the settings menu, you will see different options related to your Instagram account. Look for the “Privacy” option and tap on it.

6. Under the Privacy settings, you will find various options related to your account privacy. Look for the “Activity Status” option and tap on it.

7. On the Activity Status page, you will see a toggle switch next to the “Show activity status” option. By default, this switch is turned on, which means your online status is visible to your followers. Tap on the switch to toggle it off and hide your online status.

Once you have turned off the “Show activity status” option, your Instagram online status will be hidden, and your followers will not be able to see when you were last active on the app.

It’s worth mentioning that by hiding your online status, you will also lose the ability to see when others were last active on Instagram. This is a tradeoff you need to consider.

Remember that privacy settings can vary based on updates to the Instagram app, so the steps above may change slightly in the future. It’s always a good idea to double-check the settings if you are unsure.

I hope this guide helps you hide your Instagram online status on your iPhone. If you have any further questions or need more assistance, feel free to ask.
