Instagram Activity Status – Why I Turn It OFF

By July 27, 2018 Instagram News

Instagram Activity Status is Instagram’s latest feature that defaults to ON. Wolf Millionaire explains why you should turn this OFF immediately.

Instagram Activity Status feature was rolled out with it set to the “ON” position which needs to be turned “OFF”. Instagram is already a very distracting place to spend your time. Heck, even I get distracted when I am searching for very specific photos or accounts when doing my daily research.

Instagram has continually updated their app in order to trap you into using Instagram longer and longer and longer especially now that it has 1 Billion Monthly USERS! Instagram is still the HOTTEST social network out there and it’s growth isn’t slowing down anytime soon!

I recently explained How Instagram Helped me Buy my FIRST Porsche for FREE! It’s so exciting!

If you’re one of those people who do nothing but PLAY on Instagram, I honestly feel bad for you.  You are the typical lazy digital consumer who is just wasting their time plugged into these highly addictive social networks. You will always work for someone else in a dead end job unless you take this massive Instagram opportunity seriously.

Case Study: How My Student Makes Instagram Money From The Sky

Remember, it’s up to YOU to put in the work if you want to become successful. Everyone talks a lot of shit in life, but only that 1% of people who truly put in the work become truly successful. My Instagram EMPIRE of 30+ accounts and more than 18+ million Instagram followers wasn’t built overnight.

I spent 18+ hours a day for more than a YEAR researching and growing all my accounts knowing that there would be a time that I would be able to reap the benefits. Checkout

Don’t believe me? Check out my incredible and inspiring story of How Instagram Changed My Life!

I’ve been living this Instagram Dream life (which I still can’t believe is real) for the last 5 years every since I lost my job for the first time in my life.



Unlike so many liars, cheaters and Instagram Scam artists, I actually have made a very healthy 6 figure annual income from Instagram (right in front of you all day after day, year after year).

I purchased a brand new McLaren and Solid Gold Rolex a couple years after really killing it on Instagram all while teaching more than 100,000 students how to grow their own accounts, get better engagement, brand themselves or their companies, sell their products, services or affiliate offerings and MAKE A FULL TIME LIVING from their Instagram passions!

Instagram Activity Status: Privacy Issues

Unless you really want to announce when you are online so people can bug you more easily on Instagram DM, there is NO NEED to have your “activity status” set to ON which it is automatically set to ever since they introduced the Instagram Activity Status feature.

Instagram wants to ensure more people are interacting with each other on their app in order to drive up the “usage” stats they can brag about to advertising companies and earn more money. Don’t give them that opportunity to invade YOUR PRIVACY!

Not only is it counter productive to get constantly bugged when you just want to surf some content on Instagram, but it’s also a security risk.

You shouldn’t allow people to ever know when you ARE or ARE NOT on Instagram, keep them guessing and turn this feature OFF otherwise you will continue to be bombarded with people trying to get your attention, waste your time when all you want to do is spend some time exploring fun posts on Instagram.


Instagram Activity Status: How To Disable

To turn this feature OFF, go into your Instagram Settings via the top right dots on Android or top right 3 dashes iOS) and disable it, otherwise all your followers will be able to see a GREEN dot next to your name




Instagram continues to try and force us all to use their app with transparency of our time which ultimately works in their favour but not the end user (YOU) who will always end up distracted wasting even more of your precious time. Take your time back and disable the Instagram Activity Status to remain hidden and private while you use Instagram 🙂

Happy Instagramming,

Anthony Carbone aka The Wolf Millionaire

    I followed and switched it off.
    Indeed very sneaky.
    Noone had a clue they added a switch.
    Now with Facebook going down they are focusing on insta instead.
    Lets see how long before they re called before a Senate committee again.
