How I greatly reduce data consumption on my android by only permitting apps that I want to access internet

Hello guys,

In this video I'm going to be showing you how I greatly reduce data usage of apps on my android device. If you are using mobile network to access internet you might be incurring additional charges from your ISP if you're not properly managing your data and you allow it to be wasted by hungry apps and useless continuous updates.

To restrict data usage of your background apps, there are two methods that I combine to make it effective.

Method 1: Go to your settings and tap on data usage. Go to the menu/option and select restrict background data. Now, what this will do is simply restrict background data for some apps and while this is good, some major apps that eat your data the most such as Google play services, and other good or manufacturers apps are restricted. This happens most especially if your using more update android version such as marshmallow or nougat. So, you'll need to add another method in other to effectively stop apps from eating your data.

Method 2 (works on rooted phones only): Install this app from playstore through this link: http://byearn.com/ymmkAi

2.1 Then, open the app and tap on mode, the top left corner of the app, choose 'blacklist (block selected)'

2.2 Add android system apps such as: backup and restore, usb settings, voice recorder, application installer and so on. Note that these apps are grouped together as one so find them and check the box under 3g.

2.3 Add apps that appears to use your data in data usage statistics. If you see any app that uses your data without your permission, add them in droidwall as described in step 2 above.

2.4 After adding all the apps that you don't want to have access to your internet resources, tap the menu button (or hold the recent key for newer devices).

2.4 Tap the 'firewall disabled' option and the grey icon horizontal bar will change to light green to show that firewall is enabled.

So, this way only apps that are permitted will now have access to use data.

Thank you.

It still the same. You can close the app and the firewall rule will still persist, even after reboot. It'll only stop when you manually, disable it through the app. So, no the app won't eat neither your battery nor data. It works by editing a script on your android and doesn't need to continue running in the background.

Oh, I can see a really hardworking guy here, so hardworking that he thinks everyone finding means of minimising data usage on their smart phones are lazy.
I can see you don't have any meaningful discussion to contribute than to think of how people are not hardworking because they seek solution to a problem about their smart phones.

You are very wrong my friend.
Even Dango would ask for a solution to an unapproved-app data theft!
Its not a case of being poor or rich.

this is cool but you wouldn't enjoy your Android if you decide to restrict background data for most services.

the type of browser you use also matters.
