WhatsApp is an application from Meta that consumes several gigabytes of your contracted data plan every day, not because of the messages and voice memos you send or receive, but because of the downloading of multimedia files such as photos, videos, Word, Excel, PDF documents, etc.
On this occasion, I from Depor will teach you how to properly manage the gigabytes of your plan. How? It’s simple: reset the “Mobile data usage statistics” every month. This way you set a consumption limit and are never left without internet.
As you remember, in the “Data Usage” section you can find out how many gigabytes were consumed by calls, downloading multimedia files and backups to Google Drive. Messages and the publication or display of statuses.
Steps to reset mobile data usage statistics on WhatsApp
- First of all, open WhatsApp updated to the latest version.
- Now press the three dots icon in the top right corner > tap “Settings”.
- In the next step, click on the “Storage and Data” > “Data Usage” sections.
- Here you can see the amount of gigabytes you have spent in total, as well as the mobile data consumption for uploading and downloading.
- Scroll down and tap Reset Stats.
- Finally, click “Restart”.
These are the most common errors on WhatsApp
- Talk to strangers: Never respond to messages from an unknown or unregistered number, even worse if it is not mentioned in the greeting. Also, don’t add him as he would access your profile photo, information, name and description. Likewise, he could be a thief, blackmailer, kidnapper, etc.
- Use modified versions of the application: Modified programs such as WhatsApp Plus, GB, Fouad and others are not 100% safe. If you download or update it from an unsafe site, you risk installing a virus-infected APK that will access your conversations and even financial information, thereby stealing your savings at the bank. If Meta detects that you are using a MOD, it will also ban you temporarily or forever.
- Don’t update: Many people don’t update the app because it usually weighs more and they worry about running out of storage space. We recommend making a space because updates not only bring new tools and features or fix bugs and bugs, but also renew security patches to prevent you from becoming a victim of a possible cyberattack.
