Tips to reduce your mobile data consumption
Among other recommendations, you can set a data limit from the settings of your mobile phone to save and not find a bad surprise when you have to pay.
Also remember that downloads from any type of streaming service are the ones that consume the most mobile data from your phone, so the recommendation is that you should only use them when you are connected to a WiFi network.
Are you in several WhatsApp groups where you share photos and videos daily? It is best that you disable the automatic download function, because if you do not, your phone will continue to download content that may not work for you.
At the end, activate your phone’s data saving, which allows you to reduce them by preventing some apps from sending or receiving in the background. This is recommended if you have apps that you don’t use frequently.
