Instagram and Facebook are rolling out new features on their mobile apps to help users better manage their time on social media.

The features break down time spent on each app on a daily and weekly basis.

Users can also temporarily mute push notifications and set reminders to tell them when they’ve received a self-determined cut-off time for the day.

The tracking tools aren’t available yet on desktop, Facebook messenger, or Instagram’s IGTV app.

Also, the features track time separately for each device you use.
