Restrict Data Usage in Viber on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Sid Bedekar, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to restrict data usage in Viber on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone On by pressing the power button located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen; to unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen and at the bottom, we will see these icons.
It is one of these icons that we now need to access as we need to open up the applications folder.
To open the applications folder, we need to press the icon in the bottom center of the home screen.
The icon is a grid of white dots.
In the applications folder, we need to find the Viber application.
Mine is located here. It has the Viber icon which is a purple speech bubble with a white telephone inside and underneath, it has the word, "Viber". Your Viber application may be in a different position in this folder. Therefore, you will need to find it and press down on it to enter the application.
We need to find the settings menu and to do that, we can use this icon located in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
The icon looks like three horizontal lines. It will open up a new page.
We can scroll down until we find the word "Settings" and then we can press down on it.
This will open another menu.
Now in this menu, we want the "Media" option.
Then we want the "Restrict data usage" option located at the bottom of the page.
Underneath, it says, "Viber will optimize for minimal data usage on mobile networks".
This option is currently deactivated because the circle on the right-hand side is empty.
If we are concerned about our data usage because we are using a lot of mobile data which could result in extra charges, then we can press down on this circle and that will put a white check inside and it will make the circle turn turquoise.
This means that the option has been activated and it will try to restrict our data usage.
If we are not concerned about our data usage and it is not a problem for us, then we can press down on the circle until it is empty and the option has been deactivated.
This concludes our tutorial on how to restrict data usage in Viber on an HTC One M8.
