You have so many apps running on a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus that require an internet connection. And whether you’re actively using them or not, they might easily take up from your mobile data when running silently in the background. The email and your social media apps are two of the best examples of such third-party apps.
Sooner or later, you will conclude by yourself that turning the mobile data on and off, to prevent overuse of data, is essential. Are you not there yet?
Here are the top 3 benefits of controlling your internet usage…
- To save your mobile data when you don’t really need to receive notifications;
- To save your smartphone battery by blocking the constant updates or constant searches for notifications of those background apps;
- To spare you from getting notifications when you don’t want to be disturbed.
To enable/disable the Mobile Data on Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus…
- Swipe downward from the top of the screen;
- Tap on the small gear icon and navigate to Settings;
- Tap on Data Usage;
- Identify the Mobile Data option;
- Tap on the dedicated controller sitting next to it and switch it from On to Off;
- When prompted, tap the OK button to confirm;
- Leave the menus.
Now that you have turned Off the Mobile Data, you can relax knowing that your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus isn’t using your data in the background, without you even knowing it. Whenever you want to use an app that needs the internet and you don’t have a Wi-Fi connection, retake the above steps. This time, ticking the Mobile Data checkbox will turn it from Off to On.
