The Best way to save mobile data

This is the first and foremost step towards saving mobile data. Restrict background data on your android device in the settings. In this way, a lot of mobile data can be saved because mobile data is enabled only when you open the app and disabled when the app is running in the background or when the app is closed. You can also restrict data for particular apps by changing the app settings individually by making changes in the app settings.

2. Disable auto updating of apps

The second major reason that lets you data get drained is because of the auto-updating of apps. Disable this option on Google Play store settings over the data connection. Set it to either ‘Do not auto-update apps’ or ‘Update apps over WiFi only’. Check or uncheck auto update by selecting apps on My Apps to manage individual apps. AndroidPIT-do-not-auto-update-apps-w782
