How to check which apps are using your data on your Android device
03 May 2018
Apps on your mobile phone, iPad or tablet will use some of your mobile data. And sometimes they can be working in the background, using more data than you realise. However, you can easily check which apps are using data, and approximately how much each is using. If data usage of a certain app or apps concerns you, you can either choose to:
- turn off background data
- stop apps from auto-playing videos
- or even uninstall the app
This video also shows you how to use the Telstra 24x7 app to check how much data you have, and how your data usage is going. This helps you avoid exceeding your data limit.
