FB Question about seeing who is online

I've noticed recently when using FB in my phone that if I am reading the newsfeed and then scroll from right to left it shows who out of my friends has been on there most recently, so for example Joe Bloggs 2 hrs ago. So how do I set it that people won't know when I was last on? Surely it can be switched off?

Not that I know of...my co-worker found this feature at Christmas time.
Not sure why it only shows on phone and not laptop (for me anyway) but I don't like the feature at all

Turn on chat to see who's available.
You'll find this at the bottom of the friends list on the right. Turn it off.

On my iPhone there is a little cog at the top right corner when looking at the list of people online. You can click that and it says "Turn off chat".

I didn't realise I was on chat either, I just clicked my little cog thing and turned off my chat as well.

I turned off my chat with the cog but when DH checked on his phone I am still showing up!
Also once I turned my chat off I can still see everyone but its not as bright.
