It’s been a long time that Instagram is aiming at offering a time management feature in its application. Although Instagram announced that it is going to offer this feature months ago, it was not until last week that this feature was introduced. The Activity Dashboard allows Instagram users to see how much time they have spent on this application on a daily and weekly basis. In this article, I will offer you more information on this new feature along with the tutorial on how you can use Instagram Your Activity feature.
Instagram Your Activity feature
First of all, in order to be able to use this new feature of Instagram, the first thing you need to know is that you should have the latest version Instagram application installed on your phone to be able to use the Activity Dashboard feature.
So, first of all download the latest version of Instagram on your phone from the links below. Once you have updated your application, you will be able to use the Instagram Your Activity feature.
In order to view how much you have used your Instagram application, all you need to do is to follow these steps:
- Launch Instagram application on your phone and navigate to your profile
- Tap the hamburger menu on the top right corner of the screen
- Tap ‘Your Activity‘ from the opened menu
Once you access the Instagram Your Activity section, you see the weekly chart of the time you have spent on this application. The number you can see on top of the page is your daily average usage time which is calculated based on your usage in the previous week.
Also, you can see two options under the chart.
- Set Daily Reminder – You will get a reminder when you reach the time you have defined for your allowed daily usage.
- Notification Settings – You can set which Instagram notifications appear on your phone. You can turn off particular notifications so that they will not distract you when you are not using this application.
Instagram Your Activity feature gives you reports which are similar to Apple Screen Time feature. However, Screen Time feature is designed to give you reports on your overall usage. However, as Your Activity is designed just for Instagram, it will show you a more detailed report on your usage time on your Instagram application.
