I use the GlassWire app to track data usage, and it does a pretty good job. I really appreciate the fact that it does not share your usage data with anyone else, and it does not use a VPN.
In the past I used MyDataManager. It's a nice app, but they make money by collecting your data.
If you are on Android, use something like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android&hl=en_GB
If you're not sure what your data usage looks like and you're on Android, try this app:
I've been using it recently and it doesn't noticeably affect battery life. You'll be able to see exactly how much data you're using on both Wifi and Data! For example last month I tracked that I used 4GB on data and 35gb on wifi. I also spend most of my time in Wifi zones so I was surprised my data usage was so high.
Data lock is a good app for what you need. Don't uninstall it. But, Install Glasswire. Use both apps together. In glasswire UI is good , you can see data usage by each apps. ( From 1 minute to 90 days) , you can monitor first network activity for each app , you can set alert settings & data plan settings. It's free & It doesn't have any ads. It doesn't use unnecessary permissions.
In addition to Netguard he could look into Glasswire. It will show what apps are using data even if they are ones that he isn't aware of that are running in the background. Then he can disable or uninstall those apps that are causing a problem. Also custom alerts can be created with Glasswire to let him know when certain thresholds/percentages of data usage have been reached. That way he'll have a heads up warning him that he's getting close to his monthly limit. Glasswire won't keep him from using data, but it should help him become more aware as to what and when his data is being used. That way he can become more vigilant in making sure an overage like this won't happen again.
Also, have him look into prepaid wireless plans. Specifically ones that will just throttle bandwidth upon hitting the monthly limit instead of charging him for the amount that he goes over. He may not be able to change providers right away, but when his contract is up, it's probably something he should look into to help avoid this problem in the future.
Glasswire is great for identifying devices and bandwidth usage but if you're looking for bandwidth on every device you'll probably need an app on each.
Wrong. Just found what I was looking for.
Glass Wire It tracks all data usage and allows you to set certain apps as Zero Usage so they don't count towards the monthly data tally.
I can mark this solved now!
Aside from the built-in data tracking accessed from your device settings, Glasswire is a free, ad free, app with lots of features.
It's one of the best I've ever found, but there are others in playstore you might like too.
I know you said you wanted a widget but glassware has a notification widget that displays your wifi and mobile data usage. You call also set up a data limit warning along with a data plan with you can have it reset the same time as your plan.
Also has a nice breakdown of which apps use data. Can have a settings to alert you when a app uses data for the first time. Which was surprising for me since I never knew how many apps want to connect to the internet even when I don't use them.
Glasswire allows you to set zero-rated apps and custom billing cycles, although it won't stop the stock usage meter from counting it towards your limit. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android)
Glasswire is what you're looking for:
GlassWire Data Usage Monitor can do this.
In the menu, go to the Data Plan settings, edit the data plan, and add your music app as a "Zero-rated app".
If you're watching Hulu and other services via PC or Tablet, I'd recommend actually tracking how much data you use. Data usage is a fucking awful conversation to have with friends and family, but this is the kind of shit Comcast has forced us "heavy usage" households to do. You might be surprised how much data you're actually using with Hulu, but if you can provide your own numbers for your roommate, they might get the message. I used Hulu for a couple hours the other day and somehow managed to use 18gb.
I like Glasswire for both PC and Android.
You said you don't use a rental gateway, so maybe there's data tracking information on your router. Comcast's hardware does not offer any such help.
seems a little like Glasswire. but with app blocking.
from the description, i thought it was using VPN's with compression enabled, which was one of the very early tricks to save a few kb, but caused more issues with secure sites, banking, https, etc. that noticed you jumping around locations and ip's while driving etc and restarting your vpn connection in the middle of secure transactions, etc.
Useful feedback! I'll drop this over to the app team and see if it's not something we could work out.
In the interim, look at GlassWire. It tracks data usage in a notification.
Go to settings > data usage & then set limit for data usage.
Alternatively use Glasswire. to monitor your usage & for more advance options for data usage cycle settings.
GlassWire can show data usage (mobile and/or wifi) by day, week, or month. Can also generate alerts of new apps that use data, and can block specific apps from accessing data.
Hi, as I see you got no answers, just throwing my "2 cents" here. I suggest you try an app to monitor data usage to pinpoint which app (system/user) is using a lot of it. I understand that OS has a way to check this, but maybe another app could give you a better overview/specific usage. I suggest Glasswire. Good luck.
Not that I know of, but if you are interested in keeping track of your data usage, check out Glasswire Data Usage Monitor. It can show a persistent notification which shows how much data you have used. It can also generate alert, but unfortunately they aren't customizable. It's the best tool of this kind that I know of.
I use Glasswire for a long time. Its have slight difference (between 2 digits MB) with actual data tracker, but still pretty good.
Glasswire will do this:
Create a "data plan" for your phone plan, and then in the general settings go to "Show Data Period or Data Plan", and select your data plan. Viola, you will then have a persistent notification that shows your current data usage. It's great, I use this app on all my phones.
I don't think there's an option to completely disable internet connection in stock Android. Glasswire or this firewall can do that.
I've been using pulsar since 2015 and recently switched to Omnia. I know there's a ton of music players but you'll eventually find one you might like better than Phonograph.
Il y a plusieurs raisons possibles, comme celles déjà mentionnées.
J'ajouterai que tu peux avoir des applications (même si celle de base du téléphone sont correctes déjà) qui permettent de mieux surveiller les données et précisément quelles applications les utilisent.
De mémoire je crois il y a l'application glasswire qui est le golden standard pour ça.
I use glasswire
> • Block apps from connecting to the network, or allow or deny new connections before they start with GlassWire’s mobile firewall. Create multiple firewall profiles, one for mobile and one for WiFi.
For Android, yes. iOS, not sure but I have a strong "no" feeling.
The first application like this that comes to mind is Glasswire for Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android&hl=en_US
As no one is answering the actual question I'll give it a shot
Basically you want an app like GlassWire that'll monitor your usage
No idea if that's in the play store for the shield or if the apk works once side loaded but it give you an idea of the kinda app your looking for and I'm sure there are more under the 'similar app' section etc
For my data usage I use an app called Glasswire
It's really awesome, it gives a complete overview what apps uses the network and how much they consume.
Glasswire is the best data usage monitoring app that I know of.
It allows you to select "zero-rated" apps that don't count against your data plan, and also allows you to see how much data each app has used.
However it does not allow you to set a limit on the zero-rated data usage (i.e. your 1GB limit). It would probably be fairly easy for them to add something like that. You could try contacting them to submit a feature request. They've been pretty responsive to feedback in my experience.
GlassWire shows you what apps are wasting your network data and invading your privacy. Stay under your carrier data limits with GlassWire. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android
Llevo usando GlassWire en windows y en Android hace más de un año.
Es bastante seguro y tiene 0 ads en mobile, en Windows te recuerda cada tanto que podés comprarlo :P
You can use the Glasswire App to track and monitor all network activity https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android
Is it something like this? Screenshot
I'm not using Samsung but if the system doesn't support this, you might want to install GlassWire to generate your data usage graph
Glasswire can show your data usage in the notification shade.
In Android 5 and newer, I don't think it's possible for an app to toggle mobile data. You could try something like this to add a widget to your home screen, but it's just a shortcut into the settings. You still need a few taps to toggle the setting.
Adguard (not on google play. Have to install from their site) blocks ads, and has an option to block network access for apps completely.
Another option is Glasswire. They have an Android version, that allows you to track data in and out. The premium annual version ($5/year) has firewall-type blockage abilities for apps.
Not sure about calls/messages though. Different network.
Found the solution!
Glasswire, its a data tracker, but allows you to set any app as Zero Usage, so any downloading using it won't count towards monthly totals!
I finally settled on an app called Glasswire.
EDIT: Glasswire crashed after a day and reported 60% less usage. Now trying My data manager
I'm killing my entire data connection overnight and using glasswire to monitor data every now n then during the day.
I'd still like to have an app that would auto-kill apps that drain data quickly. Like in the case of chrome 4 gigs overnight it would see 500 mb draining quickly and kill my data connection with a popup warning.
I think this is exactly what you're looking for: Glasswire
Play store link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android
use glasswire app to monitor data consumption which is better than built in miui data monitor https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android
Well I'll just be nice since the bot seems t be afk
You can track your apps' data usage with GlassWire. Maybe it helps...
GlassWire, they also have Windows version (standalone / Steam)
GlassWire is a helpful app to track and display data usage per app, by day and by your data plan limits and time period.
Glasswire doesn't need root.
Try Glasswire it also tracks your data usage
Install GlassWire to know the exact usage & then you can compare which trip required more data.
Edit: added link
I guess u can try Glasswire https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android
Sadly, not on F-Droid, but I've been really happy with Glasswire.
So you need to find out what's using all the data.
Glasswire is a good place to start;
May be It's using telephone permission instead of drawing over the app. It might be opening part/activity of my jio app when user ends call. Because of telephone permission it know whether call is running or not.
Btw why do you keep my jio installed on your phone? That app is asking tons of unnecessary permissions. If you are using it to monitor usage, plans etc. You can monitor your usage by logging in to https://www.jio.com
If you are using it to monitor real time internet data usage, then you should use Glasswire.
Glasswire Data Usage monitor can track daily usage.
Try Glasswire if you want a better way to monitor your data usage.
I don't really need things like that any longer but any app using root (like Network Log), the Usage permission (like Glasswire), or the VPN API (like NetGuard) are able to provide the data.
Try 'Glasswire' Data Usage Monitor App.
I use Glasswire, the cons is sometime the data tracking not accurate
I just found GlassWire but apparently you need a subscription for 5€ a year to use the block feature. It has a free trial tho. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android
I think Glasswire can do that.
The firewall is a feature within, but the main thing it is for us seeing usage (which isn't my main use of it)
Here you go,
GlassWire Data Usage Monitor | 4.1 rating | Free with IAP | 500,000+ downloads | Search manually
> GlassWire is the ultimate data usage monitor for Android! Our app makes it easy to monitor your mobile data usage, data limits, and WiFi network activity.
Instantly see what apps are slowing your phone’s Internet connection ...
I know Glasswire can show data usage per day, but I'm not sure about per hour.
I love Glasswire both on desktop & android. I don't think it has a widget, but the notification bar info seems sufficient.
That's a good theory about something keeping the device awake while on WiFi. You know some apps have a setting to "do so and so only when on WiFi"... like sync the music library (ex: Google Play Music), backup to cloud (ex: Google Photos), etc. Maybe one of those apps gets stuck in a loop.
From the screenshot ( https://ibb.co/s5jF8Yg ) you can see that WiFi is continually active. You could use a program like GlassWire ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android&hl=en_US ) and it will tell you what app was using WiFi data and how much (if that's what's happening) over the past three hours or one day, etc.
Here's an example of weird battery usage in the background: I once had some corrupt files on my SD card that would cause the android media scanner to non-stop scan in the background to index media and it was eating a lot of battery until I moved all the files off the SD, formatted it and moved them back. This is not related to WiFi but an example of stupid things that can bug out and eat your battery.
Check your app usage with glasswire https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android
i would say GlassWire Data Usage Monitor as i remember
I use glasswire https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glasswire.android
You should try Glasswire.
Try Glasswire, if it's anything like the PC version, it should work.
I'm not familiar with the Xiaomi features but could something like Glasswire be what you're looking for?
Glasswire - It has Weekly option
You can set custom alerts.
My data manager also supports custom daily alarm & daily usage stats , ( disable some un necessary permissions like location )
Both app are free & doesn't have any ads.
Edit : After using both apps. Glasswire UI is better & asks less permissions. The other app has some more functionality.
You can set data plan to 60 MB daily. Check this
And turn on alert for 90% limit & full limit reached. Like this
The latest update said Tethering data should now appear properly for all GlassWire users.
get glasswire. completely free and has had zero impact on battery for me.
