[Tutorial] One-time Data Limit: share Wi-Fi hotspot with confidence

“Hey, can you lend me a Wi-Fi hotspot for a while?”
“Oh yeah, why not!”

The short rife excerpt from everyday conversation, where sometimes you might end up sharing more data than the defined threshold in your mind, because not every other friend is same and not every other phone understands not to resume the long list of update of apps while connected to a hotspot.

Ever wanted to share the hotspot with a guilt-free yes? well, now you can! MIUI 9 brings you an option to pre-define the limit of mobile data to share via Wi-Fi hotspot, now share your data without a second thought, and with a snicker (and a thought “Dude, I got you under control”)

How to enable
  • Go to settings - portable hotspot
  • Open one-time data limit
  • Choose from predefined data size or set yours in custom

When it touches the threshold of the set data size, it will take execute the action based on your selected preference.

With ‘when exceeded’ option you can either select:
  • Turn off and notify
  • Only notify

Ever encountered a situation where you wanted to cut-down the data (or Wi-Fi) for some apps while using a secondary SIM card for a while? Customize the needs for apps and keep it different for the secondary SIM.

Find it inside, security app - data usage - restrict data usage
Scroll, select and customize as you like.

  • This feature is currently in Developer ROM only, it will come in stable ROM later.
