“Your Data Subscription Is Finished, Please subscribe to renew your data bundle”.

How To Reduce Data Usage On Social Media Apps 1

This was the heart breaking message I got the first time I used Instagram. My hard earned 10MB was gone, I had no idea of what was going on… I guess it was probably because that was my first android phone. My ISP was probably like…

How To Reduce Data Usage On Social Media Apps 2

Instagram is always buzzing with about 4.2 billion posts daily and countless hash tags, I probably got carried away and my 10MB was gone in 60 seconds. I’m more experienced today though.

This does not totally leave out the other culprits. The vampires that use up your data and most times storage space.

This isn’t Vampire Diaries so we’re certainly not going after them with sticks or vervain. Simple tricks would have saved you from heartbreak.

Here are a few ways to save yourself from pain and reduce the data these apps use.

#1. Use The App’s Lite Version

Facebook, Messenger, Twitter and Skype have Lite versions. These are versions of the app that
are basically smaller and don’t use up a lot of data. The apps were basically developed for those with 2G connections and saves you a whole lot of data. So head over to playstore and grab a Lite version. If you’re not comfortable with the Lite version of Facebook, you can also turn on the data saver feature.

#2. Limit The Number Of Videos You Watch

“Discretion is the greater part of Valor ” this was quoted by Falstaff in King Henry the Fourth by Williams Shakespeare. I’m not giving you a history lesson on Shakespeare, I’m not even good at that. Basically you should know that streaming unnecessary videos take a lot of data. Why will you spend your data looking at girls on Snapchat that would keep staring at the camera without saying anything?.. It’s your data but if you want to save it, you’d better watch videos once in a while. If you’re data connection isn’t too strong, buffering will definitely eat up a lot of data. You could find third party apps that let you download the video instead.

#3 Turn Off Background Data For All The Apps

This is the first rule of saving data. For most Android devices, head over to your settings and select data usage. Click on any of the apps then turn off background data. Turning this feature off simply means that you won’t receive any messages or notifications from the app unless you’re running the app. So your data is safe and protected from waste.

Egg Gang Already Has Haters

Just when I thought I’ve seen it all. Take a look at this tweet

From my calculations the only Nigerian Celeb with a higher follower count than the egg is probably Davido.

On another note, this is kind of Sad. My IG account hasn’t even reached 20k. 😥😥

One more thing, the name of the egg is Eugene,  Don’t forget to hit that share button 😋

Whatsapp To Add Fingerprint Security

Fingeprint security is finally coming to Whatsapp which means – no more snooping around on other people’s chats when the app isn’t open.

WhatsApp has been working round the clock to ensure you get the best out of it this year and while we expect to see lots of update in the future including the ads, the fingerprint security is almost here .



 

Whatsapp To Add Fingerprint Security
According to the WhatsApp beta update for Android, the company is said to be working on a new authentication feature which isn’t available globally yet as the feature is currently under development.

Once the Fingerprint feature is enabled , the app will be completely protected, so the you will need to authenticate your identity in order to open WhatsApp (from the app icon, from the notification or from external pickers).

It will protect the entire app, meaning you can’t use it to lock specific conversations for now.

The company is also rumored to be working on implementing Face ID and Touch ID for iOS. There will be a section in the app where users can enable the fingerprint authentication feature.

Availability

This feature is in an alpha stage of development and it will be available in a few weeks for Android users Marshmallow and above, and iOS users.

WhatsApp Audio Picker

WhatsApp is also working to improve the audio picker that will allow users to see the list of all available audio files stored in your phone. The user will be able to play the audio before sending it, and it is also possible to select more audio files to send!
