Android phones are said to consume more data than iPhones, and there are times when you need to save data for emergency situations, but your phone’s background apps and services don’t let this margin. Don’t worry, there is a way to limit data usage on your Android phone, so you can make sure you always have data to spare.

The process to do this is quite simple with Android 12. The feature allows users to issue a warning when they are approaching their data limit before the end of the monthly cycle. Users can also set a limit beyond which their smartphone will not use any more data. Here’s how:

1. Go to Settings.

2. Go to Network and Internet > the Internet.

3. Press the gear icon next to your operator’s name.

4. You will now see the amount of data you have used so far in the current month. Scroll down and select “Disclaimer and data limit.”

5. Press Mobile data duty cycle. This will allow you to set the day your account starts its monthly cycle. Press on Adjust in order set the cycle.

6. Toggle Enable data warning. Then you can enter any limit you want.

On the same page, you can also set data limit on. This will disable mobile data as soon as you exceed the limit you had set.
