Why Unshare Data On Glo?
Before diving into the “how”, it’s important to know the “why” behind unsharing data on Glo. There are several scenarios where unsharing data becomes necessary. These include:
Data usage control
Your Glo data plan has a finite limit, and sharing your data with multiple people can lead to faster consumption of your data allocation. Therefore if you notice your data is finishing faster than expected, it might be because of shared usage.
Unauthorized access to your data can be a security risk. If you suspect that someone is using your data without your consent, it’s important to unshare it immediately. This will prevent them from misusing it and having unauthorized access to your data, thus helping you maintain a secure online presence.
Shared data can impact network speed. If multiple users are consuming data from your plan simultaneously, it can lead to slower internet speeds for everyone. You can alleviate this issue by unsharing your data, thereby ensuring that you get the fastest network speeds possible.
Your circumstances might change over time. For instance, you might have initially shared data with a group of friends, but later you prefer to use your data exclusively for personal purposes. Unsharing data allows you the flexibility to adapt to changing needs and priorities.
Limiting background usage
There are some apps and devices that consume data in the background, even when you are not actively using them. To prevent unnecessary background data usage and save on data costs, you should unshare your Glo network.
