Data usage

So I accidentally had my hot-spot / tethering turned on for a couple hours with no other device's we're connected. I woke up to no data left it had used 11.25gb in a couple of hours!!! Is this normal I've not had this problem before

@Adam28  Check to see if you have any apps running in the background that you aren't aware of.

Re: Data usage

Sounds like someone or something was connected and downloading a huge file or streaming some movies.

Re: Data usage

Something was connected to your hot spot at some stage. There's no other rational explanation to be quite honest.
