10+ Ways to Save Data / WhatsApp Quota on Android & iPhone (iOS) HP

As smartphone users, of course, we have to be frugal in carrying out daily activities. Starting from batteries, internet packages, credit, and other needs that we consider important. A social media application such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LINE, WhatsApp is very influential in draining internet quota.

If the application is allowed to continue to be active, over time it will eat away at the quota to its lower point. Moreover, social media has an addictive nature which the more often you open it, the more users will continue to be interested in using it. Communication is important, but at least we have to save quota and control the use of social media.
