The all new Instagram ‘Your Activity’ feature will allow you to track how much of time you spend on Instagram.
The new feature is expected to lie inside the “hamburger” icon on the upper right corner of your profile page.
Reports suggest that this will include tools for setting daily time limits and the option to temporarily mute push notifications.
The feature aims to provide users more control over how they interact with social media that may be harmful to the mental health and well-being of the users if used excessively.
Facebook is expected to follow Instagram and add the feature to its activity dashboard, which is to be called Your time on Facebook.
A similar feature called Screen Time has been introduced by Apple on its iOS, and with Google also releasing a Digital Wellbeing dashboard with Android 9.0.
