2 How to block internet access on certain applications on android

Welcome to Blog-IT-People. Talking about the internet today is not something that sounds foreign to most people like a decade ago, you could say the internet has taken part of the lives of the current generation of humans. Personally, when I work in the office, I also never get away from using internet facilities, as well as at home while resting and spending time reading people’s stories on Quora.

With the internet, distance is no longer an obstacle for someone to connect, the dissemination of information becomes very fast and easy to find, although the positive impact of the internet in modern times is always overshadowed by its negative impact every time.

The internet is so exciting, we are willing to spend a lot of money to buy quotas and pay monthly wifi rental fees so that we can continue to connect to the internet even though internet use is not very useful because some people only become consumers without being able to produce anything from the results of internet activities.

The cellular operator itself has facilitated its users with various choices of cheap internet packages according to their needs, from initially 2G-based connections, now 4G and towards the 5G era, the need for internet quotas is also getting bigger, especially the current social trend encouraging young people to be more active on the internet. and build popularity there

For the official’s son, the need for internet is not a big problem, but for some people, they must be willing to sleep in the kamling post to get free internet service facilities. Internet packages that run out quickly even though you have never streamed movies let alone download files are a problem in itself

Causes of Fast Internet Quota Running Out

Some modern applications work behind the scenes and consume internet quota resources to download some data so that we can view them offline when opening the application, the initial impression does look sophisticated because without connecting to the internet we can read information offline but as a result the internet quota runs out in an instant , then how to overcome the wasteful internet quota on android phone?

You only need to block internet access from a number of applications on your Android phone that look wasteful, unimportant, rarely used, thus the internet quota is more durable and users don’t feel anxious anymore

In fact, Android provides a feature to find out information on data quota consumption from each installed application as well as a feature to block certain applications from connecting to the internet

How to find out which application is the most wasteful of internet quota

Since I first used an Android smartphone in 2013 when the OS was still Froyo, there used to be a menu to find out a list of the most data-intensive applications, if my cellphone is a Xiaomi brand, it is located in settings > connection & sharing > quota usage, a list of installed applications will appear with information on the number of data packages. consumed today/all the time
