Relay and RW Phone Data Settings?


#1

What data settings should be enabled on my RW cell phone? I almost always have the Data Saver ON. Does that disable communication between the relay and my phone? What phone settings would I use to best limit Data usage to just the Relay and no other apps?

Thank you.

What model Republic phone do you have?

I have a Moto Z3.

OK, on the Z3 you’ll have to use a 3rd party app to control data usage app by app. I personally recommend this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.faircode.netguard which is both reliable and easy to use and will let you set which apps you’re willing to have use your wireless data.

And to answer you first question, yes, data saver can prevent your phone from getting notifications from the Relay when it isn’t in the foreground, so be careful with it.
