Extreme mobile data consumption gabker79 — Jun 06, 2018 02:11AM PDT

Hi! MFP on Android suddenly used 1GB of mobile data in just a couple of hours. Is that normal? Then I have to restrict mobile data usage for this app. What the hack happened? Why don't you do something to limit the data usage for videos and apps? I can't imagine anything else that used that huge amount of mobile data.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Could you try a fresh reinstall of the app and see if you have any other issues with data?

I just reinstalled the app and it didn't make a difference. Ive had it installed for like 10 minutes and its used about 25MB of mobile data. that was with 2 searches but most of the data was used in the background.

On android in the App manager I clicked found MFP and clicked on Mobile data. Then changed to option to not allow data usage in the background. Seems to have stopped it but time will tell. Not sure what it was doing though. Id like to know what it was downloading.
