A part of using your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in a responsible way is connected to knowing how to make the best use of its resources. Mobile data is one of those resources that you might regret not paying attention to. In today’s article, however, we will show you how to turn it Off or On, depending on what kind of permissions you want to give to your various apps – social networking, emails, lifestyle apps and so on.
Why you should pay attention to your mobile data status:
- Because it can allow the apps that are running in the background of your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to use the internet and scan for updates or even download new software versions;
- The background activity will not only consume your mobile data without even knowing it, but will also slow down your device;
- When you have both the mobile data and the wireless connection set to On, the device might switch between these two for whatever it considers the most stable connection, giving you various unpleasant experiences;
- If you travel abroad and you neglect your mobile data settings, you might end up being overcharged before you know it;
- And through it all, the use of mobile data in the background or the constant switch between connections can drain your battery faster.
Turn off your Galaxy Note 8 mobile data right now:
- Unlock the screen of the device;
- Swipe down from the top of the screen, to access the Notification panel;
- Select the gear icon that will take you to the main Settings section;
- In there, tap on Data Usage;
- Look for the Mobile Data section, which should have a dedicated toggle next to it;
- Tap on that toggle to switch it from On to Off;
- Tap the OK button to confirm.
The terms are pretty forthright for both turning On and Off the mobile data on your Samsung Galaxy Note 8. All you need is to make it to that special toggle, see what status it has, and adjust it accordingly.
