DATA USAGE TIPS: ANDROID

REDUCE YOUR DATA WITH MINIMAL IMPACT TO HOW YOU USE YOUR PHONE

How much data are you using on your Android right now?

• On your Android, go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > Data Usage. On this screen you can turn off mobile data, so that no data is used unless you are on WiFi.

• Some common high data offenders include:
        o Facebook, SnapChat, Netflix, Hulu
        o Any other video streaming apps, when you are not connected to WiFi (i.e. driving) so those apps are not automatically downloading updates and using data.

• Recently, we have found that Location Sharing is turned on for more and more apps when installed. This can use 2-3G of data on its own.
        o To reduce Location Sharing data usage, go to Settings > Security & Location > Location > Turn Use Location off.
