Monitoring and reducing data on an Android device

Monitoring and managing the data on an android device to reduce is quite a challenging task for most of the users. However, the process can be made easier by following a few simple steps in the routine.

The first and foremost step is to learn how to check the data usage which is being done on your phone. This can be done by going to the settings of your device and clicking on the data usage option. The details will pop up. This will enable you to monitor the usage of the data and control it as per your requirement.

Next, you need to know which applications are using most of your data. By doing so you can either uninstall them if they are not as important or make sure that they are not always running in the background. You need to click on Settings then go to the Wireless & Networks and then select Data Usage to see the applications which are using most of your data.

An application developed by android, which is known as the data saver can also be used to make sure that less amount of data is being used. This application is supported in all 7.0+ android devices. The application will guide you through the applications which use up most of your data.

Another way is to limit the background data by editing the setting of each of the applications which are downloaded on the device manually. Also, the background data needs to be turned off to save most of the data.

Also, you need to turn off the background application updates as well. by following all these or a combination of a few steps from above, the monitoring and limitation of the data can easily be done.
