Instagram Rolls Out “Your Activity” Feature

The feature is expected to be available for all Instagram users soon

Facebook-owned photo-messaging app Instagram is now rolling out its own “Your Activity” feature that would track how much time users spend on the app.

The feature, which lies inside the “hamburger” icon on the upper right corner of your profile page, includes tools for setting daily time limits and the option to temporarily mute push notifications, The Verge reported on Wednesday.

The feature was announced in August aiming to give 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.

The feature is expected to be available for all Instagram users soon. (IANS)
