Instagram has a new invasive feature: Here’s how to turn it off

Go to ‘application’

Go to ‘profile’

Click on the ‘three small dots’ in the upper right corner

Once you are in the configuration options, slide down to ‘Show activity status’ (this should be enabled by default)

Press the ‘tab’. If the capsule is gray, the function is disabled; if you leave it blue, it is turned on.
