    Note These instructions apply to Standard mode only.
  2. Tap Data usage.
    Note If unavailable, tap the Menu icon Menu (located at the bottom-left) then tap Switch to list view.
  3. Select an app (located below the usage graph).
  4. Tap Restrict background data.
    Note Enabled when a check mark is present.
  5. If presented with the "Restrict background data" prompt, review the message then tap OK.
