Somebody help me, please!

 
Does anyone know how to stop Instagram from automatically updating it's timeline when I switch to a different app, and go back? I'm racking my brain trying to find a setting for this, if it's even possible. I tried to go through Instagram's settings, nothing. I tried to go through Developer Options, and I don't know entirely what I'm doing in there. I tried Googling it and it gives directions for Pixels or iPhones! 😡
 
If there is a solution and someone knows it, I would appreciate it. 🙏🏼

Not app updates. Timeliness updates. I'll scroll through the timeline of posts, but if I go to a different app and then return to Instagram, it never keeps my place and I can't find the post I was looking at again. It starts me back at the beginning of the timeline.

I stopped Instagram long ago, that is part of Facebook. You have to delete the app account from there and turn it off from your settings

So if I don't have a Facebook account, there's nothing I can do to change that setting?

Go to the settings on your phone, find Instagram, turn off updates or other options. You can turn off the app also

Didn't work. It still refreshes if I navigate away for too long.
