Hello Mi Fans,

It is time for Thursday Fabulous MIUI tips, and we have reached our seventh edition of this thread! If you haven’t watched our first teaser video for Mi Pop, you can find it here: We are really excited to be heading over to India for Mi Pop this year, do say hi to us if you see us at the event venue!

For those who are new to this thread, I am happy to introduce you to the Fabulous MIUI Tips that features the features on MIUI. Every week, I will be bringing to you features of MIUI that you may or may not know in a fun and interactive way. Hope that all, if not most Mi Fans will find them useful.

MIUI has a reliable built-in Security Center that takes full advantage of advanced security technologies from Tencent, Kingsoft and LBE. This complete security mechanism ensures perfect privacy protection for users, and optimizes battery and data usage. Today, I will explain to you three features that will likely be useful to you.

Save mobile data
To be honest, data is never enough, at least for my current plan which offers 1GB / month of data. Social media apps drain up the data significantly. Luckily for MIUI users, there is an option to restrict the data usage for apps. You can decide whether an app can use the mobile data or WiFi. Here, you can disable apps that uses your data for ad fetching, and those that runs in the background. Now, you can restrict them with the following.

To activate: click on the Security app and choose Data usage followed by Restrict. Here, you can do a complete restriction and allow all apps to access data via Wi-Fi only. Or, you can be selective and allow essential apps like Facebook or Gmail to work on your mobile data.

Phone number blocklist
If you have been receiving calls from spam numbers on your phone, and have been unable to block it previously, there is a way out!

Click on the Blocklist icon to access the page. At the top right hand corner, click on the settings icon.

Select the blocked numbers and start adding the blocked numbers by clicking the button at the bottom of the screen.
Battery Saver
Battery saver is one click away as well. Other than the usual battery saver mode, MIUI allows you to have customized battery profiles. You can add in your own customised profile as well! Some of the preset profiles are:

Default - Clear background processes when device is locked
Marathon - Turn off WLAN and data services
Sleep - Turn off all network functions except for alarm clock

Have fun playing around with the features!! What do you think we should be featuring next week?
