How to reduce PC’s data usage while tethering

Connect your PC to your hotspot. Ensure that there’s no working internet connection for the main time, so it is advisable to turn off your data connection (mobile phone users).

  • Go to your PC settings and tap Network & Internet. Phone tether
  • Open the WiFi tab and tap Advanced options (Remember to stay connected to the hotspot). Phone tether 1
  • Toggle on the switch under Set as metered connection. Phone tether 2

Now, you can go ahead to use tether the internet from your phone to your PC. You will notice that your PC won’t consume that much data except you use it to download files from the internet.
