Digital Wellbeing & parental controls – The path varies slightly depending on your specific model and Android version. Look for it in the Device Care, Advanced Features, or General Management section.

Viewing Overall Screen Time

The main Digital Wellbeing dashboard displays a simple chart summarizing your daily device usage. It visually indicates:

  • Total duration – Shown on the graph and as a percentage below.
  • Number of unlocks – Indicates how often you turned on the screen.

Review each day’s usage and compare to gain perspective on your habits.

Seeing App-Specific Details

Tap the chart to view usage time broken down by individual apps. Apps are sorted by total duration, but can be ordered by number of opens instead.

Analyzing top apps shows where you spend the most screen time and tend to get distracted.

Exploring Weekly Reports

For longer-term trends, the weekly usage report provides more holistic statistics. Access it via the calendar icon or “View weekly report” button.

The report displays:

  • Average daily usage – Compare day-to-day consistency.
  • Top used apps – Determine if proportions remain steady.

Toggle between weeks to spot usage creep or measure improvements.

Additional Features

Besides viewing screen time stats, Digital Wellbeing offers tools like:

  • App timers – Limit daily access for distracting apps.
  • Wind down – Enable Do Not Disturb and dark mode at bedtime.

Use these features appropriately to better achieve screen time goals.


Monitoring usage patterns is the first step towards developing responsible tech habits. Samsung empowers users with detailed screen time insights through Digital Wellbeing. Consider customizing timers or the weekly report to suit your needs. Most importantly, reflect on the numbers with self-compassion as motivation for change comes from within.
