Are you the “bad friend” that's constantly yelled at for checking your phone too much? Don’t worry- you aren’t alone.
Data collected by Locket, an Android app that pays users to allow advertisements on their lock screens, has come by some pretty astonishing statistics.
According to Buzzfeed, smartphone users unlock their screens an average of 110 times per day with highest frequency users checking their phones every six seconds.
Locket shows smartphone users are most active between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., with more than 75 percent of users actively swiping their lock screens.
During those hours, Buzzfeed says the average user checks his or her phone nine times an hour.
Does this sound eerily familiar?
According to the stats, even a user unlocking their phone during low frequency hours, 3 a.m. until 5 a.m. is checking four times an hour.
Hard to believe? Keep in mind that Locket is an app that pays its users to swipe across advertisements on their lock screens.
Though Buzzfeed reports Locket is most likely taking advantage of an existing habit because other recent reports say the number of home screen swipe unlocks are even higher than the app’s average, up to 150 times per day.
Are you guilty of smartphone obsession? It’s all right, you're not the only one.
