Instagram, and its parent company Meta, have increasingly been aware of how much time we all spend on our devices and social media.
But while these features are useful, they can be hard to find and customize to your liking, which is why we've laid out how you can best use the three features that Instagram has made available to better help manage your daily usage.
1. Go to 'Your Activity'
Go to your profile and press the three lines on the top right, then press 'Your activity'.
2. Select 'Time Spent' in the list
You'll see a bunch of options to manage your data, your search history, archived content, and more. Go to 'Time Spent' in this list.
3. Your choice of two usage options
You have two options here, but both can be enabled if you wish. The first is 'Set reminder to take breaks', which can remind you after 10, 20, or 30 minutes to take a break with a full-screen notification.
4. Set a daily time limit
The second option is to set a daily time limit, which can be 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, or 3 hours. Once the time runs out, you're unable to use Instagram for the rest of that day.
5. Manage your notifications
However, if you want to manage your usage by changing the notifications, you can also do this by going to 'Notification Settings', and selecting 'Pause All' for a certain time.
