So you’re all set with your brand spanking eSIM form AirAlo and a fresh bucket of 5Gb or data. You turn on your cellphone and tether your laptop to that 5Gb of juicy goodness. But ….. an hour later you get a message on your cellphone informing you that you’ve used up all your data – 5Gb gone – bugger!
What happened was that dropbox decided to do a sync to you laptop or perhaps it was Windoze 11 doing an “Update”. The solution is to grab a program below that will limit your bandwidth and only allow say a web browser or email client to access the wifi network that your cellphone created. All other data will be blocked – problem solved !
