Hello MIUI Fans,
With MIUI Acquirement, Our primary focus will be coming more closer and interacting with Mi Community users. We will try to share some Tips/Tricks which will solve your problems/issues.

What do you generally do when you want to restrict data for a particular app such as Facebook or Zomato or anything else? You will probably answer by turning off the mobile data. But I would like to highlight that MIUI comes with an in-built feature that has the function to turn off data for particular apps rather than for the whole device!

QOD: How to turn off mobile data for some particular apps?

✒ Steps:
  • Find the toggle "Data Usage" in MIUI Security App.
  • Click on the button "Restrict data usage".
  • Now you can easily restrict a particular app data consumption either from a particular SIM card data pack and also through the wifi.

Now enjoy other apps without the worry of data being consumed from those particular apps!
With these simple steps

Please Note: Apps working of GCM mechanism like WhatsApp and other apps would still function even after restricting data.

If you have any questions/doubt or need any other solution about a problem then please do comment below. I'll try to cover the topic in the next edition.
