Mobile data usage spike

GPad

I was using my mobile data yesterday when I apparently ran out, which was unusual since I hadn’t used that much since the rollover. I have a 12 gb data plan. I logged into my account to check my usage only to find that I managed to use more than 11 gbs of data all on the same day. I’m not sure what I used to get to that point as the only apps I really remember using were Instagram and Spotify, as well as a little bit of Snapchat and even then I didn’t use them for more than 2 hours. I’m wondering whether it was a specific website or anything, as I’m unsure as to what happened. Is there a way to find out what website I apparently connected to in order to use this much data as I’m surprised and have never user this much.

Hi @GPad . Does your phone keep a record of data usage by app for the current cycle?

If it's the browser, you could check the browsing history.

Thanks for the reply.I have an iPhone so it tracks mobile data usage by app in the settings but it doesn’t tell me how much I used for each app during the day.
