If you don’t deactivate the activity status option, anyone can know when was the last time you connected. If you know this information about your contacts, click on the Direct icon that you have on the top right of the Instagram main page. Direct is the internal Instagram chat application, and in it, you can see all your contacts.
When you are in Direct, you will have a list of contacts or you can open conversations. In this list, under the username, you will see that it sets Active X ago. That will be the time since the user last entered the app. To the right of that indicator, you will have another, but that refers to the last time you spoke for Direct.
