Where is my data allowance being used?

Answered

Hi,

Just wondering if there is any way to track exactly what is being downloaded and uploaded so I know where my data allowance is going?

G'day @footballfamily , and welcome to Crowdsupport.

 

Aboput the only way yopu can do this is individually.

 

If you have Apple or Android devices, you can go into settings and data usage to drill down to see what apps are using your data.

 

If you have PCs, you can get applications such as Connection Watcher  http://www.moo0.com/?top=http://www.moo0.com/software/ConnectionWatcher/  (my favourite at the moment) to see what the PC is doing, and what data is downloading.

 

There are other "data managers"

Networx looks good for Windows.
