    This feature, similar to WhatsApp’s blue tick feature, offers users greater discretion in managing their message interactions. By hiding the ‘Seen’ indicator, users can browse messages at their own pace, free from the pressure of immediate responses.

    To use this option and maintain privacy:

    1. Navigate to ‘Settings and Privacy’
    2. Locate ‘Messages and Story Replies’
    3. Choose ‘Show Read Receipts’
    4. Disable ‘Read Receipts’

    With this feature, Instagram users gain more control over their messaging experience, ensuring a tailored and more comfortable interaction.
