It should be noted that MIUI has a large number of very useful features and functions. Sometimes it can be difficult to locate the ones you need the most when you are a new user, who has been using this brand for a short time. One such feature is the one that allows you to check your data usage. A feature that can be of vital importance if you have a limited data plan, it can also be useful if you want to know at all times how much you are consuming. In this post, we will show you how to check the Data Usage on your Xiaomi phone.
How to set up a Data Plan
To begin with, you should know that the function that allows you to check your data usage is found in the Xiaomi Security app. The Security app is characterized by several features. Among these functions are a cleaner, a security analysis tool, an app manager, battery, among other functions. In this case, we are going to focus on the Data Usage function. The first thing to do is to set up a Data Plan, this way your phone will be able to determine what your data usage is.
Open the security app and go to the Data Usage section.
Then click “Agree” to accept the terms and conditions of use. To keep track of the app’s data usage, Xiaomi collects information such as packet names, WLAN, and mobile data usage, which is stored locally on your phone.
After that, select “Set data usage limit”.
Next, click on “Monthly data limit” and enter the amount of mobile data that your plan has available and press the “OK” button, in this case, we will set 10GB.
Then choose the option “When data plan is used up”. This option will allow you to choose the behavior of the data usage app when the data plan is about to run out, choose one of the two options, “Show warning” or “Warn and turn off mobile data”.
Then select “Data usage warning level”, set the percentage you want to be warned of when the Data Plan is about to run out. The default is eighty percent.
Finally, set the usage reset date. This is the date on which your Mobile Data Plan is renewed. Each month the counter will be reset when this date is reached.
Checking Data Usage
Once you have finished successfully configuring the Data Plan, go back to the Security app then Data Usage, then you will see information about the data usage, if you want more detailed information about the data usage of each of the apps goes to “Data usage stats”. You can also search in four different periods, yesterday, today, last month, and this month.
