When your active status is enabled on Facebook, your contacts can see that you are currently or recently have been online. If you do not want them to know your online presence, turn off your active status on Facebook. Let’s explore this feature.
This is for iPhone, iPad. and Android. Screenshots are from iPhone XR. Images may be different on iPad and Android.
Later, if you change your mind, you can re-enable active status and let people know that you are online.
First, launch the Facebook app on your phone. In the app, tap the three horizontal lines. If you are on an iPhone or iPad, you will find these lines at the bottom right-hand corner. If you are on an Android phone, these lines are at the top right-hand corner. Refer to the below image:
