MOBILE DATA CONSERVATION TIPS

Last month we gave out tips on how to make your phone secure, this month let’s go further by advising on how to conserve your mobile data usage. We’ll be highlighting on 5 major tips.

Once you adhere to these simple tips you won’t have to wonder what consumes data on my phone.

  1. COMPRESS CHROME PAGES:If you use Google Chrome to surf the web often, you would discover that you can save one-third of your data consumption when you compress the pages. The data saver settings enable all web pages to be compressed before being loaded into your browser.

Although it’s also important to note that this setting has a little setback which is, it tends to slow down your surfing speed just a bit. To activate the data saver, simply launch the Chrome browser, go to the menu section where you have 3 dots and select settings, after which you now select Data saver.

  1. GET RID OF THE FACEBOOK APP:The Facebook app is one that is used by most android phone users and it is responsible for the loss of large volume of data asides the regular draining of battery. In order to conserve your data you can download Tinfoil for Facebook which is a web app that displays the Facebook website. After installing the app, check the box next to “open links inside the app”, this will make links being opened from the mobile app to open from within the app instead of the browser.
  1. RESTRICT BACKGROUND DATA:Background data include weather widgets, updating of feeds, etc. It would interest you to know that they use your data even if you are not actually using them, so it’s advisable to disable them.

Please follow this procedure: Settings > Data Usage > Restrict Back ground data. Then if you want to adjust the settings for a particular app, go to Settings > Apps.

To change sync settings for Google services, go to Settings > Accounts > Google > select the account. When this is done, uncheck the services you don’t want to sync automatically. Note that these depend on the particular android version being used.

  1.    DISABLE AUTO-UPDATING APPS:It is advisable to disable auto-updating apps. To do this, Go to the Play Store and tap the navigation section on the left and you’ll see settings, Open the settings and ensure that it is set to either “’Do Not Auto-Update Apps” or “only over Wi-Fi.”

But for individual apps settings, go to My Apps > choose the app you want to disable > un-check Auto-Update.

  1. SAVE RATHER THAN STREAM:Another important way to conserve data is to always download music or video files into your device rather than streaming them from sites like YouTube. After this you save the music or Video and can now listen or watch offline.
