I hope you all are enjoying the rainy season. So MIUI 10 is finally released and Public Beta Update has already started to rollout for few devices. So if you are one of the beta users, then you must have checked out the new amazing Security app.
Haven't checked it out yet?
No worries, Go through this thread: Presenting MIUI 10 Security app: a complete fresh design
I am sure many of you might have noticed a new feature in the security app known as "Test Network". Actually this feature was introduced long before but due to certain reasons it was removed in MIUI 9. But now It has been re-introduced in MIUI 10. Through this thread, I will explain you about this feature, what it is and How it works. So let's get started.
Open Security app- Scroll down- "Test Network".
(Security app Version- 2.5.9)
This feature shows the app which consumes internet in your background. To be more precise it lets you monitor the real time data usage of your apps, including upload/download speed.
The Green arrow shows the download speed whereas the Blue arrow shows the upload speed, You can observe which app is currently consuming and how much data it consumes.
Look at the gif below, it shows that my WIFI-Hotspot is currently switched ON and the Apps that are consuming the data.
Suppose I want to restrict an app from running in background, what should i do in such case?
Not a problem again, MIUI has been designed to make our life easy and simple.You can easily stop an unwanted app that is consuming your data by tapping on the app and force stopping it.
Please Note that you cannot force stop system apps from running in the background
Want to Test your Network?
This feature lets you scan these points.
After the test is completed, you can see your network status with the result.
I hope I was able to share my knowledge about this feature to my fellow MIUI users. I will continue to make such cool threads again and again.
So How do you find this feature?? Isn't Cool?
