Social networks and content like TikTok or Instagram Reels can be addictive and what was going to be a little while turns into a few hours scrolling non-stop and they deprive you of the necessary rest. Instagram will now try to snap younger users out of their trance with an automatic reminder for young people.

When a teenager spend more than ten minutes on Instagram when it’s too late the app will display a screen reminding you that maybe you’ve had enough Instagram for the day and consider closing it.

To sleep

The European Union has its fly behind its ear because infinite scrolling of applications as an addictive component and one of the applications where we find it is on Instagram, both when reviewing our friends’ posts and if we get hooked on a session of watching Reels by swiping up without stopping.

Until now Instagram has given us several tools so that we can control how much time we spend in the application, as is the case with Time elapsed (in the Settings > Settings and privacy). For the youngest, the application has different parental controls and now the night reminders.

These nightly reminders will appear when a teen has spent more than ten minutes on Instagram watching Reels or writing messages at night (starting at 10:00 p.m.) and apparently they cannot be deactivated. This reminder includes the question Time to take a break? as a header and the text “it’s late, consider closing Instagram for today.”

Although they cannot be deactivated, what teenagers can do is simply ignore the notice and continue using Instagram. In addition to, of course, paying attention to him going to sleep.
