I pulled up the app to look at my usage and as I'm looking at it it's going up and I'm not downloading anything watching anything or doing anything. Why is this????

Re: Usage

Great question, @Jerrytitan.


Your data usage could be going up because of apps running in the background. If you are not actively using an app I advise that you close it. 

When pulling up your data usage, were you connected to your internet services? This can also make your data usage go up.

Save your data by controlling your activity at home. Learn how to secure your connection, defend your devices, and take control of your usage!
