    i just noticed for example news sites playing video content right away. I’m on a 4gb data plan and I don’t want this to happen. Anyway to prevent websites from loading video?

    Have you tried using any content/ad blockers?

    You can try a few different ones (like Adguard, for example) and see if anything helps.

    Ok thanks I’ll try that. I had Adblock installed already. The problem is when I visit a news site all of a sudden it starts playing video.
