Do not let these 5 Apps ruin your day

We will run out of mobile data before the end of the month can be somewhat chaotic. One way to avoid this is stopping those hungry applications with your data available just before a blink.

Among the most consumed we can find the most used by us every day, as are Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify or YouTube. If you use these applications daily, you should change your settings to reduce significantly the amount of data they use.

Facebook | Stop Autoplay video

Check Facebook every five minutes clearly going to destroy your data, but if you do it while you have the autoplay videos is even worse. Fortunately, we can limit this feature to play only when connected to WiFi, or turn it off completely.

  1. Open the Facebook app and tap the More button in the lower right corner, then tap Settings.
  2. Select Account Settings, then videos and photos.
  3. Once we played here and will choose between Auto Play only with WiFi connections and never automatically play videos.

Twitter | Disables autoplay videos

If you are someone who spends a lot of time on Twitter, you should disable automatic playback.

  1. We opened Twitter, and click on Account.
  2. Touch the icon of the nut at the top of our profile and select Settings.
  3. We played within the section General Data.
  4. Here we touch Autoplay video, and select Use WiFi only or not automatically play videos in chronologies.

Instagram | Preload videos and photos

Today Instagram is not just for photos. We can find videos in the application-and the play automatically! The application preload videos to be played as soon as you see them in your home.

The good news is that we can turn it off from the options menu if Instagram is that you can call it. All you have to do is:

  1. Open Instagram, go to your profile and open Settings.
  2. Tap cell data usage.
  3. Using less active data.

Youtube | Only active with WiFi

The good part is that YouTube does not have the annoying feature of playing videos automatically. The bad news is that, being a video playback application, little can be done to avoid mobile data toil away all flip.

However, we can enable an option to play videos in HD only when we are connected to WiFi.

  1. We open the YouTube application and touch the icon of the three points which is in the upper right corner.
  2. Open Settings, and touch on the switch Playback HD WiFi only.
  3. While we're on Settings, slipped way down and activate the option Upload only with WiFi, if you are someone who like to upload videos every so often from the mobile.

Snapchat | Travel mode

As does Instagram, Snapchat makes a preload of Stories and Snaps, to appear immediately when you take a look at our home. The problem is that this preloading consume many mobile data.

You can prevent this from happening by activating an option that is somewhat hidden mode called Journey. This will help us Snaps & Stories that take a little longer to load.

  1. We entered Snapchat and slid down to view our profile.
  2. We played the gear icon in the upper right corner.
  3. We will manage and activate Travel Mode.

Perhaps with these tricks and we can make ends meet on our mobile, but do not assure anything. Each terminal is different and we do not know if you have more than one application that consumes all your mobile data, so nope , so we installed on our phone!
