    Hi

    Is there any way to reduce the amount of data Safari uses. Im wondering if there is any features within the app that is recommended to turn off to maybe save a little more data.

    Thanks

    You can disable some things like suggestions and preloading but that's more or less it. You can also use a content blocker that would block ads and trackers and save on how much data I being transferred. Alternatively you can try using a different browser like Chrome or Opera which have some data saving options.

    But downloading either one of those browsers will consume even MORE space. More than you could ever save by using them.

    Well, those could be download while on WiFi, for example.

    Thanks guys, think I will just leave it as it is for now to see how much data I have used at the end of my data plan month.

    I only have 3gb data plan, I cant see myself getting anywhere near that as I make sure Im on wifi at home and only download apps/updates over this.
