Instagram usage among Android users in Spain has skyrocketed in recent years. This means that there are users who spend a large amount of time each day in the application, something you can easily verify in the application itself. In addition to checking the time spent each day, the application gives us more options. It’s possible to set reminders on Instagram that tell us how long we’ve been with the app, so we can reduce the time we use it. It is presented as a very simple method to get less time spent with the application in our daily life.
Create Instagram Reminders
The reminders that Instagram will issue are just that, reminders. The application will tell you how long the user has been using it on their phone, but the application will not close or the user will be forced to stop using it. This reminder is a tool that will allow you to decide to stop using the application on Android.
To create a reminder on your account:
- Open Instagram on Android.
- Tap your profile picture.
- Click on the three horizontal stripes at the top.
- go to the settings.
- Log in to the account.
- Click on your activity.
- Go to the option called “Schedule daily reminder”
- Choose the amount of time that must pass before the reminder is displayed.
- Click the Schedule reminder button.
When the user spends time on Instagram in a day, this reminder will be displayed on the phone screen. The user can continue to use the app as normal, but the idea behind this kind of warnings is that they will stop using the app when it is displayed. This will reduce application usage time on Android. If you want to go a step further and apply limits to the time an individual can spend on certain applications, where this is included, we’ve already shown you how this can be done. Thus, after the set time, the user will not be able to use that application until the next day. It is a more severe option if you want to reduce the use of some applications on your smartphone.
