I had "Use only wi-fi ." checked and exit the app with double tap (even remove the app from taskmanager).

I'll check if it was a one-time issue...

Thanks for the response.

The data that is being used is called BACK GROUND DATA. It should not be as bad as it looks. That's a normal process of the mobile phone when using some .. You can try the . called restrict back ground data. But the app might not work. For example, if you turn off the back ground data for Google, you can't get on the web page that your looking for. Also even though your using the wifi, background data is still needed to make the app work. Hope this helps.

There is definitely something wrong with background data . on the Android platform. First of all, I have . configured to only use WiFi. and secondly, I didn't use it at all this month. I just looked at my phone data usage (after receiving a warning from my cellular provider) and . had devoured 825 MB in the background!

I decided to uninstall it until this is fixed. That's just way too much unauthorized background data usage. Especially when I haven't watched anything and background data transfer is explicitly disabled.

I am having this issue but it's not background data. I have an android. Galaxy s7 edge. I have set the app to use on . in the settings. And I have restricted background data. But I'm still getting warnings daily about going over the limit on my data. I had it set to warn me at 2GB. When I go into data usage on my phone it shows . at the top. And says it's used 2.08gb of data. And thats NOT background data. The background data is at about 200mb..but it says today alone I've used 2gb.... haven't used it. I closed out of it over a week ago and I checked the settings and it's still .. I pay for data so it's an issue. Please help.
