How to Stop Apps from Using Cell Data on Android Phone
To significantly minimize use of data on your device, here are a few useful background information. If your data is turned on, you may be charged for background data. These apps can sap your batteries and valuable resources, but there may be a few different causes for your problems. Some apps may not be well optimized, some may be malware, or some may have a bug.
The following steps may constrain apps from using data on any other Android phone:
- Head over to settings for your mobile device.
- At the top right corner, tap the settings icon.
- Get on Network & Internet > Use of data.
- Select the data usage app to see just how much data every other app has used recently.
- Select ‘Use of cellular/mobile data.’
- Choose an individual app.
- If your background data is enabled, then choose the button to turn it off. The button will turn Gray when it’s off.
- You could also change your sync settings for Google services in Settings > Accounts > Google > Select an account and then uncheck the services that you do not want to sync automatically.
Deactivating background data could perhaps prevent a few apps from functioning right unless you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. In the event that this affects you, you may consider disabling specific apps from using Cellular Data for background activities instead of restricting background data for all apps.
