1) App My Data Manager
The best way to control metered internet connection thresholds is to use the app My Data Manageravailable for Android and for iPhone.
This app allows you to measure, in a very precise and clear way, the internet bandwidth consumption while we navigate with the smartphone and also measure the consumption of each single application installed.
This is its best feature because, if an app uses too much data in the background, consuming a good part of the subscription threshold, we can intervene, blocking it and banning him from using the data connection (he will only use WiFi from now on).
After installation on Android, we open the app, press the button Menu to enter the options and set the subscription plan by tapping Set Data Plan. From the next menu, simply enter the monthly threshold in MB or GB of your subscription plan to begin monitoring data usage on your phone.
If the threshold is approached, My Data Manager sends an alert on the screen to warn the user to pay attention. There are then several very interesting additional features including the analysis of daily traffic to generate a forecast on how much will be consumed monthly. Finally, there is no shortage of widget to add on the home screen for always keep an eye on the thresholds.
Alternativelywe can also use others app to monitor Internet data usage and consumption and data connection traffic thresholds such as Watchdog, which allows you to configure credit thresholds to avoid exceeding them.
