Just got around to starting to use this. Does anyone use this feature regularly?

Does it use a lot of mobile data if you connect over LTE?

I use it (though it is annoying that it doesn't remember the devices that I've already authorized). I don't use it over LTE but I don't see why it would use significantly more than straight SMS.

Fetching the interface would use a lot more data than pure text SMS. And Google is well known for bloated code and trackers that chew through your data.

Do you have a lot of issues with "unpairing"?
