Hi. Could anyone tell me please how much is sensible data to have for a 13 year old daughter?
I have no idea about data usage and the right “bolt” to add?
She uses Instagram sensibly, stream some music videos and the odd film or episode from Netflix but I really don’t regard her a heavy user and I keep an eye on what she is up.
I just don’t want to exceed allowance of 500MB and incur in surprise mega charges which we did some months ago due switching mobile gadgets and not turning off cellular data... when is good to switch this on and off? Is there anything else to look for?
Thank you, Lorena
Probably 1GB -2GB?
However the best lesson of all, is teaching her to use WiFi wherever it's available. No shame in asking any of her friends for their WiFi password when she is at their house.
It seems to be common practice with young people nowadays.

In addition to the above, I can recommend to have a browse on the NSPCC pages here that gives some advice around keeping kids safe online.
There's also a recent topic here with some tips on making your data allowance last that might be of some help too.
