Instagram is testing a new status indicator for the last activity that would be visible across all the user profiles we are tracking.
Meet the Instagram version of Android and iOS, the new indicator is automatically activated and appears also next to Inbox messages, showing how long it has been since the person visited the social network.
The status displayed may be "Active," indicating recent activity, or "Active Now" if that person is currently browsing Instagram pages.
As with Facebook Messenger, the new activity status opens new possibilities for spying on users, systematically collecting the information made available by the social networking even helping to establish a pattern of activities for each user, by going to find out who with whom he talks more about Instagram
However, the app provides an option to disable the status of activity, which we can call if we want to keep the previous privacy level
