Reduce your data using on Google Chrome for iOS
Google recently updated Chrome for iOS adding a couple of new features, including the ability to cut back on the amount of data used by your iOS device.
The feature reroutes non-SSL or Incognito Web browsing through Google’s servers to compress the pages, resulting in less data being transmitted to and from your iOS device.
To use this new feature and reduce the data usage with Chrome, follow these simple steps:
1. Open settings, select the Bandwidth option, followed by selecting Reduce Data Usage. Flick the switch to ‘On’ to enable data compression.
2. You will then be able to view the statistics of how much data you have saved over the last month when browsing using Google Chrome. By default, this option is disabled so if you do not wish to route any of your web browsing traffic through Google’s servers, leave the switch off.
