How To Make Your Data Cap Last Longer
This tutorial will explain why your data cap (Megabytes or Gigabytes) finishes on time and how you can make it last longer. You will bear me witness that the rate at wish data cap finishes this days is becoming alarming.
I was amazed few days back when a guy sent me a mail that he subscribed for one month bis subscriptionand to his surprise, it exhausted after three days; i was surprised and perplexed.
But there are many factors that could make your data cap exhaust without your prior knowledge.
Windows Update: Most a times, when your windows update is set to automatic updates, it will not only sap your data cap but totally cripple and crumble your data cap as it will be downloadingunnecessaryupdates.
The best way to optimize this is to set the windows updates to ‘never update’.
Windows update most a times is usually up-to if not more than 300Mb; the worst aspect of it is that

whenever you connect to the internet, it will just be downloading new updates without you knowing.
Imaging your window updates downloading new updates every time you connect to the net, that simply means that your data cap will finish that same day.
To me, windows don’t need to update.
Help yourself and save your data cap.
To automatically deactivate windowsupdates;
Go to Start Menu= = = >Control Panel= = = =>Windows Update
Click on change settings and select
“Check for updates but let me choose whether to downloador install them”.
And if you automatically want to do like me, you can choose
“Never check for updates”.
Ok it and you are good to go.
Antivirus: Normally, your Antivirus is set by default to automatically update; but this is not advisable.
I remember my ESET Antivirus, whenever I connect to the internet, it will just start downloading files of over 23,000Kb; before you know it, my Airtel data cap was exhausted.
Though your antivirus is supposed to be updated every now and then in order to keep your system secured, but why must you use your subscribed data cap to update your Antivirus when you can easily walk down to a Cyber Café and pay for an hour to updates your Antivirus.
It is advisable to set your antivirus to manual updates instead of automatic updates.
To those using Avast Antivirus, you can easily do that by following this simple steps;
Go to Settings=====>Updates.
Engine and Virus definitions –
Choose Manual updates
Program – Choose Manual updates.
Click ok and close your Antivirus window.
With this, your Antivirus will not be automatically updating itself but will allow you to choose when you want to update it.
You can always do this for every other Antivirusshould in case you are not using Avast Antivirus.
If you are using a different Antivirus, and you don’t know how to set it up, you can always hit me up on whatsapp @ 08060518174 for the settings ::::::
