Instagram addicts beware.

The app has quietly introduced a new feature called 'Last Active' that shows friends the last time you logged on to the app، daily mail reported.

The default setting for the app is 'on' - meaning your closest friends can know exactly when you've been scrolling through their feeds.

The unnerving feature appears on Instagram's direct messages section beneath followers you've been chatting with.

The feature appears for those who have the latest version of the app.

As well as seeing the last time you were active، users can see when you're 'typing' back to them.

Not all your followers will be able to see when you were most recently on Instagram.

The feature only appears for people you follow and have previously chatted to on direct messages.

Like Facebook Messenger، it will show how many minutes or hours ago you were active on the app.

The activity tracking can be turned off relatively easily in 'settings'.

Scrolling down through the options the 'show activity status' option is below other options such as language and vibration customisation.

The option can be toggled on or off.
