If you are that paranoid, use a VPN.

"eduroam" doesn't see anything -- eduroam just handles the authentication part of the connection, and that's all done over encrypted tunnels. The owners/managers of the WiFi network you're connecting to will be able to see you're using Instagram, but you'll be doing this over https, which is encrypted.

What's the specific scenario you're concerned about?

they will be able to see that you're using instagram but everything after that (messages, profiles, pictures) is encrypted and thus unseen to everyone except the us government
