One of the things that all Android users worry about is saving as much mobile data as possible. If you’re not careful and don’t keep it under control, you could end up with one expensive phone bill.
There are plenty of apps that claim to save your mobile data, but which ones are the best? The following apps are the most used apps to help you limit your mobile data use and save you some cash.
1. Opera Max Data Manager
Besides protecting your privacy as a VPN, Opera Max Data Manager also saves your mobile data. You save mobile data because the apps have to go through Opera’s serves that compress the data.
So, you end up with the compressed data that helps you save mobile data. It can monitor any app you have on your phone, and you can also block any apps from accessing your mobile data/WiFi.
It can also control your WiFi and tell you how many KB each app is using. In the Privacy tab, you can see what apps are a risk and which ones are not.
2. My Data Manager
With 5 million downloads and counting, My Data Manager is one of the most popular data saving apps on Google Play. It can track your usage on WiFi, roaming, and mobile. There is also text and call tracking, so you know how much time you have left.
