    Find the YouTube application

    Ours is located in the bottom right-hand corner. The icon is a big red button with a white triangle inside, and underneath, it says the word "YouTube". Your YouTube application may be in a different location in this folder. Find it and press down on the icon to enter the application. In this video tutorial, we want to show how to limit mobile data usage by this application. To do that, we will need to find the settings menu.

  8. 8
    Find the first option, "Limit mobile data usage"
    .
    Its description says "Only stream HD video on WiFi". To stream HD video, it can take up a lot of space and cost more money because of the high quality of the video. It can take more bandwidth. That is why it can be better to use only when we have WiFi. This will limit our mobile data usage. Currently, this option is not activated, which we can see because the adjacent box is empty.

    The adjacent box turns green and has a white checkmark inside.

  10. 10
    Press down again on the box, or anywhere in that section, to deactivate the option
    .
    This will not limit our mobile data usage. The adjacent box will empty. This option is now deactivated.
