Android: View and control data usage - here's how
Your mobile data volume determines how much you can surf on the go. Therefore, it is advisable to always keep an eye on your consumption. Fortunately, you don't even need an app to view your data usage on Android.Today's tariff landscape is broad: many people get by with little data volume per month, while intensive users resort to LTE packages with 5 GB and more. Especially with smaller data volumes, it makes sense to keep an eye on your data usage so that you don't end up without any remaining volume at the end of the month.
How to find Android data usage informationTo get all the data usage information, all you have to do in newer Android versions is follow these steps:
- Open the "Settings" of your smartphone.
- The correct menu now depends somewhat on your Android version and smartphone manufacturer. Find "Wireless & Networks", select "Data Usage".
- If you have the "Connections" menu instead, tap on "Data Usage".
