As a short-form mobile video platform, TikTok understandably uses a lot of data. However, there are ways you can curb your data spend. Start with this advice.
Limit how much time you spend on TikTok
You can set a time limit under 'Settings', using the 'Add Limit' option. You can choose between a limit of one day or one week. If you are a parent, you can also add a password, so your children can't change the time limit! And you can monitor how much time your children spend on TikTok, using 'Screen Time' under 'Settings'.
Enable Data Saver on TikTok
TikTok's Data Saver option will automatically reduce the resolution of the videos you watch, meaning you are not using as much data to load them. However, this may result in the videos themselves taking longer to download.
Vodacom data options
Vodacom has a wealth of different options to choose from when you need data. Vodacom Just 4 You offers incredible, tailor-made offers personalised for your own specific usage. Vodacom's fibre offerings also vary according to your own needs. Check out Vodacom's Fibre deals here.
