How to monitor internet usage on Android

Using more internet data than your monthly allowance can be an expensive mistake. It’s easy to let it get away from you, but thankfully it’s also really easy to keep tabs on how much data you’re using. Android tablets make it very simple to check your internet usage.

Step 1

Go into the ‘Settings’ app on your device.

Step 2

Tap on the ‘Data Usage’ option, which should be at the top of the screen.
