Like many other apps on Android, Instagram also has its own messaging service, which merged with Messenger in Europe. When you open the messages section on the social network, it shows that you are online or active at the time, so that accounts following you and you are following will also be able to see it and write you a message.
The one that others can see when you are online on Instagram is not always ideal, either because there is someone we don’t want to write to us, or because we don’t want them to know when we’re online. The good news is that the social network has the ability to hide that you are online.
How to turn off Instagram notifications on Android
If you want to turn off Instagram notifications on Android for a while, we’ll show you the steps.
Hide your status on Instagram
The power to hide your status is a function that was present in the application from the beginning, although the way in which it is possible to do it has changed. This causes some users not to know the steps to take now to be able to hide their status in app messages. The steps we need to follow are:
- Open Instagram on Android.
- Tap your profile picture.
- Click on the three bands at the top right.
- Go to Settings.
- Go to Privacy.
- Look for the option called Activity Status.
- Come in.
- Turn off the switch next to Show activity status.
After connection status is disabled, when entering Instagram messages nobody will be able to see if at this time you are logged in or not. This status is hidden for all contacts in your network and if you have a public account on the social network, anyone who will send you a message or have done so will not be able to see your connection status at any time.
If at any time you change your mind and you want your status to be visible again, you will have to perform the same steps as we indicated, only now you will have to activate the switch. This way you will again display your activity status in the app.
