Before explaining yourself in detail how to remove the last access to Instagram, I would like to make you a couple of important clarifications to better clarify the matter.
First of all, you need to know that, in a similar way to Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, it is possible to know it activity status of an Instagram user without resorting to various tricks: in other words, upon the occurrence of precise conditions, followers may be able to see when they have accessed the social network and how long they have been inactive using the same features official application (and site).
The display of the last access, among other things, is active for all accounts by default but, as I will explain in this tutorial, it can be deactivated at any time by acting through the Instagram app to Android (downloadable from the Play Store or from alternative stores) e iOS (downloadable from the App Store). From a PC, you can instead proceed from the official Instagram site or from its application for Windows 10 and later.
Furthermore, it is important to point out that the last access can only be viewed within the section Direct app (marked with a paper airplane); this information, however, does not only concern the last activity on Direct, but takes into account the last connection to Instagram. The last access is made explicit through one of the options that I am going to list below.
- Active now - the user is online when their status is displayed.
- Active [x] min ago - the last access of the user was a few minutes before.
- Active [x] h ago - the last access of the user was a few hours before.
- Active today - the last access of the user occurred during the day today.
- Active yesterday - the user accessed Instagram the previous day.
Also know that not all Instagram users are able to see your last login: only those you mentioned in a story or with whom you have exchanged private messages can.
Last but not least, it is good that you are aware of another not negligible aspect concerning a condition of reciprocity: by deactivating the last access on Instagram, in fact, you will no longer be able to know that of the other contacts and, therefore, you will no longer be able to know if a contact you follow has logged into the social network or not in the last forty-eight hours.
