The Xiaomi mobiles include a host of applications and services in their custom layer, MIUI. And one of those functions is to check the network, an integrated application that measures if there are problems with the Internet, how much data each application has downloaded and also allows you to close the apps directly.
How do you know if the Internet is working properly on your phone? Usually you open a browser to check if it loads pages, check the network settings, make sure the data rate is not exhausted and connect to a WiFi network to see if the phone can download from a local access point. Another option is the apps, although you don’t have to download new ones: if you have a Xiaomi with MIUI you have an option that maybe you didn’t know about. And that is very useful: ‘Check the network’.
Find out which apps devour data and whether your connection works
One of the disadvantages of the MIUI is that it is an extremely heavy layer. In return, all the applications and services incorporated provide the necessary to manage the entire phonealso to protect him. That’s what the ‘Security’ application is all about, a compendium of options ranging from cleaning up your phone of unnecessary files to boosting the battery saving with different options of economization. Not only that, the ‘Security’ application also includes an option to check the status of the Internet on your Xiaomi.
Check the network’ is an option integrated into Xiaomi mobiles from MIUI 10. With it you can analyze which applications are consuming data in real time, either from your tariff or from the WiFi connection. The app has a large counter where you can see the complete current consumption with all the apps that have consumed KBs below. And, if you click on any of those applications, you have the option to to force its closure in order to cut off consumptionas long as it’s not systemic, then you might not be able to shut it down.
To access the ‘Check My Network’ application you must do the following:
- Search for ‘Security’ among all the applications you have installed and open it.
- Scroll down the list to the bottom, you will see the shortcut to ‘Check Network’. Click there.
- If you are already at the MIUI 12, you will see a ‘Utilities’ option appear at the bottom of the screen. Inside is the access to ‘Check Network’.
- Additionally, the Internet status check can be found in the Advanced settings in the ‘SIM cards and mobile networks’ menu.
With the ‘Check Network’ app you can make sure that no applications are abusing your data rate: if you’re not doing anything with the phone, and you see a suspicious app consuming excessive bandwidth, it’s best to value your uninstallation at least if it doesn’t give you a service that you actually value. In addition, ‘Check the network also serves you to stop applications directly from the list: click on any one and force it to stop.
