Instagram has an Activity Status feature that allows users to see when other Instagram users were last active in the application. This information can be viewed from within the direct message inbox in the Instagram app.

Users can hide their Activity Status if they don’t want other users to be able to see when they were last active. However, if a user hides their own Activity Status, they won’t be able to view anyone else’s, either.
