It may be that you do not even notice it, but when you use social networks on your cell phone, a good amount of time is wasted there that could serve other interesting tasks. Thinking about the well-being of users, Instagram has created a new tool to control the time spent on it.

This new feature is already available to anyone who has the Instagram app on Android or iPhone. Here’s how to find out how much time you’ve spent on Instagram and how to create reminders to stop using it:

  1. Open the Instagram application and tap the “User” icon;
  2. Click the icon represented by “three lines” and enter “Your activity”;
  3. At the top of the screen, you’ll see a weekly report of how much time you spent on the app each day. Already to create a reminder to stop using the social network, touch “Set Daily Reminder” and choose the maximum time that you will be inside the application. Click “Set Reminder”.

In addition to the configuration above, this same “Activity” menu also made it easier for you to stop seeing unwanted notifications on your phone.

This Instagram tool is very useful for those who think that it is wasting a lot of time within social networks. Beyond it, keep in mind, the latest versions of Android and iOS also bring similar features so you can control the time you spend on your phone.
