People who visit Instagram every other minute, scrolling through the feed for hours a day, may have an Instagram addiction. But that’s not you, right?
You may be wrong. If someone asked you the number of hours you spend on Instagram a week, would you know the answer? Now you will, thanks to the Your Activity feature rolling out to Instagram.
Your Activity allows you to monitor your usage each day, giving you a daily average number. If you don’t like what you see, say, you discover that you spend 8 hours on Instagram a day, you can use the feature to limit your usage and turn off notifications for a certain period of time.
Because the feature is still rolling out, you may not have it in your app just yet. If you want to check, click the three-lined hamburger icon on the upper-right corner of your profile page.
According to The Verge, parent app Facebook will also roll out a similar feature called “Your time on Facebook.” The release date has not yet been disclosed.
