Digital Nudging to Reduce Screen Time Consumption

Three studies demonstrate that screen-time tracking apps improve digital self-awareness, but do not help consumers reduce mobile phone screen time. Conversely, a digital nudge, turning the mobile to greyscale, is an effective tool to lower screen time. Finally, we find that lower screen time is linked to better performance at university.
