  • You can specify the period of data usage, whether a day, a week, a month, and so on.
Wireless & Networks section
  • You can also see which applications are consuming the most data. 

Specify warnings and data usage limits

You can specify warnings and data usage limits for a certain period. To set a warning, you just need to draw a line on the graph with the words warning on the left side according to the amount of data you want.

The warning will appear automatically when the specified amount of data has been reached.
