I assume your mobile data subscription isn’t lasting as long as intended, which is why you’re reading this message. In a situation where you pay for a 9GB data subscription that is expected to last a month, but the data is already depleted after two weeks. Why is this so?

Take these basic steps to extend the life of your mobile data:
Launch the Facebook/Instagram application.
Scroll down and pick ‘Settings’, followed by ‘Account Settings.’
Tap on ‘Videos,’ then ‘Autoplay.’
Choose the ‘Off’ option.
