Question: Does Facebook Use Data While On WiFi?

Do you still use data while on WIFI?

The answer is no.

Generally, when your phone is connected to your home or any other Wi-Fi network, it will not connect to the 5G, 4G, 3G, or any type of wireless carrier network.

Any data used via Wi-Fi will not count toward your data plan.

Does using Facebook use data?

In fact, casual Facebook browsing on your phone consumes almost 2MB of data per minute. Spend 40 minutes a day at the site (the U.S. average back in 2014) and you’re using 2.4 GB of data per month on Facebook alone. And that’s not counting the data that Facebook uses while it runs in the background.

Does messenger use WIFI or data?

Re: Fb messenger

This app sends messages over a data connection and does not count towards any (unlimited)texting plan. It counts against your cellular data allowance unless you have a wifi connection when sending/receiving a message.

How do I keep Facebook from using so much data?

Tweak your Data Usage settings in Facebook

  • Inside the Facebook app, tap on the hamburger menu on the right-hand side and scroll down to Settings & Privacy.
  • Tap on Data Saver to save on mobile data. You can set it to turn off automatically when you’re connected to Wi-Fi.
