Google Slams Banhammer On Rogue Google Play Apps With Lockscreen Ads

02 December 2017

"That's why we built Datally, an app that helps you to control, save more and do more with your data", Caesar Sengupta, Vice President, Next Billion Users, Google, said in a blogpost.

"Mobile data is expensive for many people around the world".

The app helps users keep tabs on their data usage, broken down by the hour of the day, or segregated by apps.

"It really acts as a speedometer for your mobile data, along with the ability to block data if things are getting out of hand", Woodward said.

The Data Saver bubble can also kill data connections for an app with just one tap, very useful for cases when a rogue app suddenly spikes in data usage.

Applications frequently use data in the background for updating content and information but with Datally's Data Saver feature users can already control data on an app-by-app basis, so that data only goes to apps they care about most. The latest update adds additional protections in the forms of user warnings against Android apps that collect user and device data without permission.

If you are into Android field for quite a long time then Datally may not seem an exciting fact to you. The app also offers personalized recommendations and tips on how to trim down data consumption. It relies on your phone number to check how much data you have left in your plan, and uses a VPN to manage what data is allowed or restricted.

One of the significant features of this it has a button at the top of the app that will show you for stopping all the background data usage, so that the active apps on the screen will only use the mobile-data. Want to download the app? Timely notifications will also be hit which again can lead to curtailment of the functioning of several apps, with messaging apps likely to be most affected.

Once you're connected to a network, don't forget to rate it to help others in the Datally community find great Wi-Fi.

Datally works on all phones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher, and it's available globally on the Google Play Store.
