I have been using Castbox for podcasts for a couple of months now. It is still using background data, even though I have the switch toggled off. My data reset this morning, so I have a fresh start. My phone was only on Cell data for my half hour commute. I did not open the app while driving, but it did start automatically playing from a downloaded podcast. I checked once I got to work, and it used 17.65 MB of background data! (with the Enable background data switch off)
How is this app able to use data if I’ve restricted it, and do you have any recommendations how to prevent it using data in the future? Last month it used 303 MB of background data and another 200 of foreground data (loading images/descriptions when opening the app to go to a new downloaded podcast) I never stream the podcasts while I’m on cell data. I’d prefer not to have to freeze data every time I’m driving, as I need GPS apps open.
