With the internet, things like communication among devices and gadgets have been made very easy. It doesn’t take forever anymore to connect your laptop to your phone’s hotspot. This is probably why you can now connect your hotspot to your computer for browsing. Regardless, for some people who use hotspot, their mobile data doesn’t last which is not supposed to be. So, they are discouraged from using the hotspot. If this is the case with you, Jumia travel, the leading online travel agency shares tips for maximizing mobile hotspot.

Reduce the use of multimedia

If you use hotspot, and you want to save data, you should avoid watching videos and music streaming. This is because more data is required for viewing and playing videos and music.

Turn off automatic update

Whenever you use hotspot, always turn off the automatic update on your phone. It may have been long your computer was updated, and immediately your system is connected to a hotspot, it will begin to update. Before you say, Jack Robinson, your data is exhausted.

Don’t forget to end all downloads

You may be downloading a movie on a public Wi-Fi and you are unable to finish. However, you forgot to stop or end the download and you later connect your hotspot, the download will simply continue from where it stopped earlier with the use of your data.

Optimise Wi-Fi settings

You should activate your hotspot for shorter low-power Wi-Fi. This will make it possible for data to be less consumed while browsing with hotspot.

Observe data level

Notwithstanding the fact that you have enough data on your phone, you should not ignore it when you connect your hotspot with your computer. You should always check it from time to time so that you will be aware of your data balance. This will let you know how to use it carefully and consciously.

Stop all background applications

Like your phone, your laptop also has background apps running. Some of these apps need internet to function optimally. So, end all background applications before you connect your hotspot.

Google has recorded a milestone achievement of $1 trillion, joining the likes of Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon.

The search engine company was able to achieve the feat on Thursday, after its parent company, Alphabet ended the day’s trading at $1,451.70 per share, up 0.87 percent.

With Thursday’s achievement, Google became the fourth S&P 500 component to top the lofty level. Business Insider reported that while Apple and Microsoft are still valued at more than $1 trillion, Amazon which was the second US firm to ever hit the $1 trillion level back in September 2018 has since fallen below the number.

This is the first time that three American companies are worth at least $1 trillion at the same time. The most valuable company on the planet is still the oil giant Saudi Aramco, who went public last month at a valuation of $2 trillion and is currently worth around $1.8 trillion.

Alphabet’s record market valuation came after a historic change in leadership at the company. Recall that Sundar Pichai became the CEO of both Google and Alphabet after co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin announced that they would step back from the company which they founded in 1998.
