    Hi just a quick question

    how do I hide my usage from when I am browsing the Internet on a wifi router. In other words I want to hide how much I am downloading or browsing on my iPhone when using a wifi network

    I think you fundamentally misunderstand what a router does. Any Wi-Fi data you use, by definition, has to be sent to your device from your Wi-Fi network's router. It is not possible to "hide" from a router how much data it is sending any more than it is possible to "hide" how much gasoline you've pumped from the gas pump. If you are the sysadmin, you can probably disable any function to measure usage, but I assume it's from the Sysadmin that you wish to hide your usage.
