How To Restrict Background Data Usage On Android Devices

It’s no news that most Android apps are highly dependent on internet data even when not in use, some Android apps still make it a habit to drain your data, this has been one major problem most if not all Android users complain about. 

In this post, you will learn a good trick/way to restrict or disable or stop background data usage on your android phone, so as not to waste unnecessary data, and saving some cash at the end of the month, and as well your battery.


However, there are some apps such as Gmail which would provide you with the option to limiting the frequency at which they consume data by configuring it to update your email at desired regular intervals, but as this might not go down well with some, or you wish to stop some apps like Facebook where this option is not found, disabling background usage of data is key. Now only would the internet bills keep piling up if you do nothing and your battery as well gets drained.

Note: As at the time of publishing this post, this method works on Android 4.0 JellyBean, and above.
