How To Make Your Mobile Data Subscription Last Longer by NaijaTechGuy(m): 7:31am On May 04, 2019
In this post I’ll be showing you how to make your data subscription last longer We all dread getting that notification from our ISP or telco that our data subscription is about to finish and it can be annoying and really disappointing.



Although, I’m pretty sure we can always blame our ISP’s for coming up with different data zapping techniques, especially MTN. Nevertheless here’s a way to keep your data from running out too quickly.

There are 2 ways to do this – Turn off background data or set a data limit within your social media apps.

How To Turn Off Background Data

Go to Settings > Network And Internet > Data Usage >Mobile Data Usage then click on the apps that are using too much data then turn it off

Setting Data Limit On Apps

1.Turn off Facebook Video Auto-play:
Go to your Facebook option icon (the three horizontal bars at the top right corner)
Click on App Settings (Under help & settings)
Click on AutoPlay
Select Never autoplay Videos.
In addition, you can activate the “Data Saver” option
Navigate to the option icon
Then go to settings & Privacy
Select Data Saver,
Toggle the data saver on.

2. WhatsApp – Deactivate Media Auto Download :

Go to the “settings” section in your WhatsApp APP
Click on “Data and Storage Usage”
Select Media Auto Download option
Deselect all options under “When Using Mobile Data”
You can also enable low data usage for WhatsApp Calls

3. Instagram – Reduce Data Usage :
Open Instagram options
Go to Settings
Select Cellular Data Use
Then tick Use Less Data.

4. Twitter – Deactivate Auto Play:

Go to your Twitter Profile icon.
Click on Settings and Privacy
Select Data Usage
Set Video Autoplay to Never

5. Snapchat:
Go to Snapchat Settings
Click on “Manage” under “Additional Services”
Tick the “Travel Mode” box

6. YouTube – Limit mobile data usage:

Open the YouTube App
Tap on the profile icon at the top right corner
Select Settings
Click on General
Turn on “Limit Mobile Data Usage”

7. Playstore – Update Apps on Wi-fi Only:

Go to the Google Play store
Click on Menu & go to Settings
Click on Auto-update apps.
Select “Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only”.
You also have the .option to choose “Do not auto-update apps

Me I think my own is spiritual. I can't believe I exhaust 3 gig in 1 week. Whenever I calculate how much I spend on data in a month I'll begin to wonder if "financial devourer" is not pursuing me according to my pastor.

Money I'm supposed to be chopping and enjoying life I'm donating to Airtel et al

Trash. That shit is being controlled by these network providers. If they want your mb to last they know what to do. Reason why Bought subscription last more than Bonus data

The Lord of data will keep providing cool. Though some are necessary things to do but why would i restrict most apps background, no fun in it again then. Instagram is the main data killer just limit it usage or use night plans for viewing it.

Another thing...download 'lite' versions of some apps.

eg...instead of youtube., use Youtube Go. Uses far less data

Look, the surest way to save data is to disable background data and also switch to EDGE from 3G/4G whenever u aint browsing or just want to use whatsapp only. Take note that this will reduce your browsing speeds though. But u'll be suprised that it saves data soo much.

I also sell cheap network data. Check my siggy.
