Do you think that you’re spending way too much time on Instagram daily? Do you want to set reminders for yourself to limit your usage every day? If so, you can add a daily limit reminder on their mobile app. Follow our guide below, and we’ll show you every step of the way.


Social media apps can waste a lot of your time in a day. While scrolling through your feed, photos, or reels on Instagram, you may not notice that a lot of time is passing by.

If you want to focus on your work or other productive stuff, you might want to limit the time you spend on social media apps. Thankfully, Instagram has a feature that sends you a reminder after using the app for a certain amount of time.

Here’s our guide about settings a daily usage limit on the Instagram app for Android.

How to add a daily limit on Instagram

If you think that Instagram is taking too much of your time every day, you can add a daily time limit on the app. In this way, you’ll get a reminder after spending a certain amount of time on the app.

You can add a daily limit to your Instagram usage on the mobile app. In our tutorial below, we’ll show you how to add a usage reminder from your Android device.

  1. Open the Instagram app and tap your icon on the bottom right corner of the app to go to your profile page.
  2. Tap the hamburger icon on the top right corner of the screen.

  3. On the menu that appears on your screen, select “Your Activity.”

  4. Head to your “Time Spent” details.

  5. Under the “Manage Your Time” section, select “Set daily time limit.”

  6. Choose the duration you prefer and tap Done at the bottom to confirm your decision.

That’s how you set your daily time limit on Instagram. Please note that this feature only acts as a reminder, and it doesn’t prevent you from using the app after the time limit.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to set reminders on the Instagram web app. The daily limit feature only works for the mobile version.

To wrap it all up

Now that you know how to add a daily limit to Instagram, you can remind yourself that you’re spending too much time on the app. While the feature doesn’t stop you from using the app throughout the day, it can help you stop scrolling for too much.
