There is a way to control and limit data usage!

date

There are now infinite packages of data that you can use, and most of them are advertised as unlimited. Of course no one is unlimited in practice, but if you do not know it, you learn it in the worst way. That is, paying extra for exceeding your data.

However, it is always wise to keep an eye on the flow of data so you can be sure you have not exceeded your limits but also to review when you need the current data pack.

And it may not always be overwhelming, but at some point you may be surprised. If you want to not find yourself or to be in this unfortunate time again, this article might be useful.

We start by setting it up mobile to let you know when you are approaching your data limit. For more safety, you can set a specific threshold beyond which you will not be able to use any data with device you.

  • Settings
  • Network & internet

  • Select Set data warning, so you can get notified when you overrun for example 2 or 3 or whatever you want in GB.

Stay on this page if you want to set a data limit. By choosing Set data limit, your data will be completely shut down when you exceed this limit.

If your device is Android 8.0 or later version, your mobile has a data saving feature. This is activated when you do not have one Wi-Fi.

  • Settings.
  • Network & internet.
  • Data usage.
  • Finally select Use Data Saver.

There is a specific case application for example, you want to use data even when you've enabled saving.

  • Go to the page again Data Saver.
  • Unrestricted data.

There you will find a list of them all apps that you have on your mobile. Choose what you want.

If in spite of what you have said, you want more detailed control of your data, you can look for the right app for you. Some of the best known are the Datally and My Data Manager.
