Zario is scientifically proven to be more effective than a digital detox. In an internal research project at Maastricht University, the effectiveness of Zario was confirmed in reducing problematic smartphone use among its users. 88.87% of participants who were initially classified as being "at risk" reported a reduction in their problematic smartphone use after using the app.


“So honored that my book, Indistractable, inspired this! Keep up the great work!” Nir Eyal, best-selling author

"I never thought changing my bad social media habits could be so easy." Mark

“It was beyond my expectations. I already tried a lot to reduce my screen time and this was the first thing that helped me understand my habits.” Melissa

*What is the science behind Zario’s methods?
Zario uses two major behavioral psychology techniques: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), both proven to help reduce problematic smartphone use.

*What makes Zario different from other screen time reduction apps?
Zario creates a personalized journey, utilizing psychology to help users change their habits in a fun and engaging way. Set limits for how often open distracting apps and then choose a challenge to do instead! Our challenges are validated by an internal research project at Maastricht University to reduce screen time. It will never feel like “work” when using Zario!

Good bye doom scrolling

Time on the toilet has been reduced, productivity has increased. While starting with just minutes, the cumulative days (!!!) saved over the year that can be used for infinitely more useful things are massive.
