How To Set A Daily Time Limit On Instagram

Do you find yourself spending too much time watching reels and scrolling on Instagram? Do you want to reduce the amount of time your spend on the app? With the help of the daily time limit option on Instagram, you can remind yourself to take a break from the app after a certain period passes. Read on, and we’ll show you how to enable the feature on your account.


Using Instagram can take a lot of your time daily. After all, people enjoy watching reels, checking stories, and viewing content shared by their friends on the app.

While there’s nothing wrong with spending your free time scrolling through Instagram, you might want to limit the hours you spend on the app. Doing so gives you more time for your hobbies and other productive things you do.

With that in mind, you can set a daily time limit on your account. After setting this option, you’ll get a reminder to close the app after the set time passes.

Here’s our guide about using the daily time limit feature on the app.

How to set a reminder for daily usage on Instagram

If you want to cut down the time you spend on Instagram, you can set a daily time limit when using the app. When you enable this feature, you’ll get a reminder to close the app after using it for some time.

You can use the daily time limit feature on the Instagram mobile app. Follow our tutorial below, and we’ll show you how to do so.

On your phone:

  1. Open Instagram and sign in to your account.
  2. Head to your profile page by tapping your profile icon on the bottom right.
  3. Tap the three lines on the top right.

  4. Select “Settings and privacy” on the menu that appears on your screen.

  5. Tap “Time spent” under the “How you use Instagram” section.

  6. Select the “Set daily time limit option.”

  7. Choose the usage duration that you want to set for your account and tap Done to apply the changes.

After setting a daily time limit, you’ll receive a reminder once you spend a certain amount of time on the app. With the help of this option, you’ll get a reminder to take a break and close the app.

While the daily limit doesn’t prevent you from using the app, it reminds you that Instagram is taking much of your time. Once you receive the reminder, it’s up to you whether to continue scrolling or take a break.

To wrap things up

Endless scrolling on Instagram can take up much of your precious time daily. To reduce the number of hours you spend on the app, it’s good to have a reminder to take a break after using the app for some time.

But in the end, the app will only remind you of the daily usage limit you set for yourself. Taking a break and closing the app is entirely up to you.
