It is very difficult to limit the use of mobile phones, especially during the outbreak of Coronavirus. Despite home quarantine, many outdoor activities have been reduced and replaced by various cell phone apps, games, and social networks. However, it should not be forgotten that excess in any work is harmful! Many people think that giving up mobile phones in times of unemployment is easy, but the evidence shows that this is very difficult and even impossible for some people!
According to recent reports, Brazilians work an average of 4 to 8 hours a day using their mobile phones, making Brazil the second country with the highest usage time of mobile phones. Of course, there are many useful solutions to limit the time spent using smartphones. These features and solutions will also be suitable for parents who do not want their children to drown in the phone for a long time.
On phones with the Android operating systems, there is a tool called “Digital well-being” that can help you with this. The only limitation to using this feature is that it will be available in Android version 9 or higher. If you have the necessary preconditions to use this feature and you want to control the time of using your smartphone, go with Wironal step by step.
How to set a time limit on apps android
1. On phones with Android 9 or higher, go to the Settings section and find the Digital well-being and parental controls option.
It should be noted that if the application expires, the application will close automatically and its icon will turn gray, indicating that it is not possible to run again. This time limit is automatically renewed every day and you do not have to apply the above settings manually each time. Of course, if you need to use the app again on the same day, just change the digital settings again and remove the preset time limit.
Also, if your phone does not have the “Digital Health” tool, you can download other apps from the Android Market and apply a time limit on your apps, which of course we do not intend to address in this article. On some social networks, usage time can also be controlled through the app settings. For example, on Instagram, it is enough to set a limit for spending time on this social network through the settings.
