If you’ve joined Signal recently too, you may not be very familiar with all its features. For instance, there are several ways to save data in the Signal app. Signal works a bit like WhatsApp, but unlike WhatsApp, every single bit of your data stays on your phone. Downloading all of that uses data. If you work with a limited data plan, you can use these Signal data-saving tips to save cellular data.
Here is how to save cellular data in Signal app on your Android phone.
Save Cellular Data in Signal App on Android
Signal offers a few ways to save data in the app, and they’re mostly the same as WhatsApp. We also have a guide on how to save storage space on in the Signal app. If your phone is running low on storage, you can check it out following the link below.
- Launch the Signal app.
- Tap on the three-dot overflow menu button in the top-right and select Settings.
- From the Settings page, select Data and storage.
- There are a few settings to modify here under the Media auto-download section.
- Tap on either: When using mobile data, When using Wi-Fi, and When roaming.
- You’ll see the following options: Images, Audio, Video, and Documents
- Unselect the options you don’t want auto-downloaded and tap OKAY.
- You can modify each of the three settings the same way.

Besides these, Signal does not have a lot of data to save space on. The company does not even store your phone number. Since it is just a chat app, Signal shouldn’t really be the biggest data consumption app on your phone. But if you share a lot of media and files, you might run out of your data plan pretty quickly. Hopefully, the data-saving tips will help you save cellular data in the Signal app on Android phones.
