We Unlock Our Phones For No Reason Almost 4,000 Times a Year

Do you ever find yourself picking up your phone and unlocking the screen, even though you didn’t get an alert that you have a new message and you don’t have any particular reason to use your phone at that moment?

Yeah, we all do that . . . A LOT.  According to a new study, the average person unlocks their phone for no reason 10 or 11 times a day.  That adds up to almost 4,000 times a year.

And if you assume each time you do it you burn about a minute, that’s 67 hours a year where you’re literally just wasting time aimlessly playing with your phone.
