But what happens when you are on a limited mobile data plan and cannot spend more than a specified amount of mobile data per day? In addition, while mobile phone carriers advertise that they provide a lot of data, it is inevitable that you will run out of it, at one point or another. That is why, it is so much better when you know how to set daily data limit on your smartphone.

But wait, setting up a daily limit on data usage isn’t the only way out. You can also try out these other methods to help save more on mobile data.

Start Using the Data Saver Mode on your Smartphone

Unless you have a very old smartphone (Android version older than 8.0) then you will also have the Data Saver in-built on your smartphone. The Data Saver feature is also quite helpful when it comes to reducing additional data usage on your phone.

The feature starts working when you turn off Wi-Fi on your phone and start using mobile data. It ensures that the apps and services that are there in the background of your phone do not end up using additional data. Want to know how to enable it? Easy! Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app on your smartphone.
  2. Go to the Network & Internet page.
  3. Now, click on the Data Saver option.
  4. Toggle the Use Data Saver button on.
  5. Once the feature has been turned on, you will see a reddish overlay on your battery in the notification bar. This denotes that the Data Saver feature has been activated.

Limit the Data Usage on a Specific Set of Apps

While the Data Saver feature is interesting, it can also be a bit irritating for you if it stops affecting the performance of every app that you use. Indeed, some of our apps work much better when they have unrestricted data, and they might just be that useful for you too. So, how do you work around such a scenario? Once again, Android features come to save you. Now, you can limit the data usage on a specific set of apps, very easily. Here is how to do so:

  1. Open the Settings app on your mobile.
  2. Go to Network & Internet and open Internet.
  3. Scroll down a bit and click on Non carrier data usage.
  4. Now you will see a list of all the apps and how much data they have been using. You can monitor apps using mobile data on your phone and turn on or off the use of data while the app is in the background!
