I had an issue that came to my attention a few days ago that my 1 gig plan was almost completely consumed 7 days into my monthly coverage. After looking at the republic app it showed on mar 31st that an app called Motorola Notification used 95% of my cell data. I have a new Moto G4 Plus phone and have had a Moto X 1st gen and never had an issue like this.
I reached out to RW and sent screen grabs of the data usage and the app sometimes is identified as MotoRola Checkin and today its showed that on the day of the spike that Motorola Notification was the offender at 95% data usage that day.
They have credited me $10 and instructed me to upgrade to the 2GB plan for this period.
Then asked me to reach out to the community for help in stopping this app from getting piggy again.
Here is the RW reply
***"As for preventing this from happening again, because it was a really odd anomaly with a Motorola Process, the only information that you might find helpful would be this Community Resource on Optimizing Apps for WiFi. ***
***The idea would be to prevent that App from doing anything over your Data Network, which maybe other some Community Discussions might have more information on." ***
I have a Moto G4 Plus phone and want to see if I can turn off that app so it doesnt do this again. That community link that they sent didnt cover the Motorola apps specifically and I could use some help here. Can I shut that app from getting access? Are there other apps like this I also should disable?
