How to save your rate data and make ends meet

In addition to having WiFi on your mobile, you will use a data rate that allows you to navigate anywhere. Depending on the gigabytes you have contracted it will take more or less to exhaust your data but it is advisable to pay attention and not waste it. If you follow these tips you can save and not consume your data rate the first week.

Follow this series of advice that will allow you to save on your data rate and reach the end of the month without having to ask for an extra bonus or not being able to navigate for things that you really need.

How to save your rate data and make ends meet

  1. Disable automatic updates

Do not allow your applications to update when you are not connected to WiFi. Go to the app store and disable this option so that they only update when you're at home or connected to the network and don't consume data.

Go to Google Play> Settings> Automatic app update

On iOS go to Settings> iTunes and App Store> Automatic downloads

  1. Control the applications that spend the most

You can go to the settings of your phone to know which application is the one that is consuming more data. Go to the settings of your Android phone. Settings> Data usage> Mobile data usage. You can see what are the apps with which you are spending the most data. Stop using them when you are not connected to WiFi or configure these applications to not work when you are only with data.

  1. Control how much data you have left

You can see on your phone a graph with the data consumption and see when you are approaching the limit. When you see that you have little left, restrict the use of data.

  1. Turn off automatic playback

Both Twitter and Facebook and Instagram have videos that play automatically when you are checking your timeline or your feed. Disable these options from the application settings so that you do not consume more account data and wait to have WiFi to watch these videos.

  1. Use YouTube Go or the offline option

Netflix has an offline option where you can download your chapters and watch them without the need for an Internet connection. You can download these chapters when you have WiFi and watch them later without consuming data. YouTube has also launched YouTube Go for you to watch downloaded videos without spending anything on your rate if you don't have Internet.
