Recently I discussed how to hide a Facebook status from friends so they can’t disturb you online. You can be contacted by people on Instagram who can send you DMs if they see you are active. There is an option to keep your Instagram private. If you don’t want others to see your Instagram active status, I will show you how to hide it.
