How to see when a user logged in (was online) on Instagram
Your favorite application has long ceased to be just a service for publishing and viewing photos and has turned into a real messenger. A prime example of this is Direct (private messaging), which has replaced other messaging applications for many users. In this regard, the developers have added a function to Direct, which is present in WhatsApp, Telegram, etc. Now in this section you can see when your interlocutors were last online. For this:
Open the Instagram feed and click on the airplane icon in the upper right corner or swipe from the right edge to the left. The Direct messenger will open, in which the time of the last stay online in Instagram will be indicated under the username.
However, as we said, this function is not always appropriate. Fortunately, it can be easily disabled.
