How to Restrict Background Data Usage on Samsung S10 Plus

Your Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus device package may contain an “unlimited plan”. In this “unlimited plan,” there is always restraint. The company that provides an “unlimited plan” may decrease the speed after a specific data usage or start increasing the amount of the plan. Many users have fixed the data limit for each month. Like 10 or 15 GB for those users, each MB of data is valuable. Therefore, restricting background data usage on Samsung S10 Plus would help you.

However, if you restrict the background data of any app on Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, you will save some MB from the data. But applying the restriction may rise the un-proper response from that app until or unless you are not connected to Wi-Fi. It is tough to decide on which app we should apply restriction. Then according to me, research on each and every app and detect what is transmitted when they are in non-usable form. After the detecting process, decide the app on which you can apply restriction safely.

Use the below-given steps to apply restriction on the desired app for background data usage.
