I have an Galaxy S9+ & have historically used the Google browser. I use on average only about 250MB of data per month over mobile, mostly I do Internet stuff over WIFI. But lately I’ve been using Google’s Chrome browser as it allows multiple tabs to be opened & other things I like about it. However, I’m now using about 6 times the amount of data than I use to but I haven’t change my habits any. And I usually close out the tabs after using them.
I checked the apps to see how much data is being used in each & sure enough the Chrome Browser is using the majority of it i.e. 80%. Does it keep running “stuff” in the background I don’t know about? My wife’s phone is doing a similar thing. In the past her WIFI would not always turn on & she’d blow through data quickly with some games she played thinking she was on WIFI. We fixed that a few months ago & lately she has been around 500MB per month. But for the last 2 months we are blowing our 1GB plan. She is also using the Chrome browser.
Any advice here?
