Instagram Lets Users Spy on Friends

Instagram Lets Users Spy on Friends

Now you can stalk people on Instagram since the new update allows you see when users were last active.

Instagram is taking a leaf out of parent company Facebook and sister platform WhatsApp's playbook by allowing you to see when your friends were last active. It must be noted that not all followers will see when you last visited Instagram, rather the status will be visible to people whom you previously chatted with or follow.

After accessing the settings page, scroll down to "Show activity status".

Mkhitaryan To Make Debut? | Expected Arsenal XI vs Crystal Palace
But Palace put up more fight in the second half and even got a consolation goal through Luka Milivojevic with 12 minutes left. Patrick Vieira was the first when he claimed a 90th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Derby at Highbury in December 1996.


Do note, however, that the Activity Status is a two-way street - you'll need to share in order to see. To enhance the experience and make it easier for users to see who is following them, Instagram added a new indicator that makes things clearer.

This feature will also show the "active now" status if you are using the app at the time.

When developers put a feature on the app that might lead to misunderstandings between loved ones or even just basic users, you might begin to wonder what they were thinking of by putting it there in the first place.

Offering his conclusions, Dr Jackson said they were based on clinical information and his year of observing the president. I put out in the statement that the president's health is excellent , because his overall health is excellent .


We've asked Instagram for comment on whether it thinks the feature should be turned on by default, and how it plans to address users' privacy concerns. Tap the toggle switch next to it to disable the feature and BOOM! back to scrolling and trolling in incognito mode. Currently, the app notifies only if the image or video is sent to Instagram direct but the new feature will expand to the public stories as well.

Having people see when you last logged into the site could lead to some embarrassing moments.

The app was last updated on January 16, but the recent feature showed up on Thursday.
