Do you have
Think your child is only using WiFi within the house ? If their iPhone is on 9.2.1. then think again.
If you’re the kind of person who routinely uses almost all of the mobile data included in your monthly plan, there’s something you should know about Apple’s latest iPhone software. A new feature called “Wi-Fi Assist”, which is turned on by default, has reportedly been quietly eating through users’ mobile data quota while they thought they were on Wi-Fi.
The Wi-Fi Assist setting can be turned off in the Mobile Data settings screen. This feature is designed to make sure users get a smooth online experience, switching automatically to mobile data to boost your connection speed if your Wi-Fi connection is determined to be too slow.
It’s easy to see how this could be handy if you’re trying to stream audio while walking away from
your house, or browsing the internet in your backyard right at the edge of your Wi-Fi’s range, but it comes with a downside as well.
For those who already use up most of their data plan while out and about, the feature could potentially blow out phone bills across the country, as iPhones pilfer mobile data at home to assist with flaky Wi-Fi speeds. Some users have already taken to social media to complain their mobile data usage has skyrocketed since they upgraded to iOS 9.
Those using the internet on a budget would appear to be at particular risk of bill shock, as in Australia low-cost mobile plans are notoriously stingy with the data allocation, and low-cost home broadband notoriously poor in its consistency.
Thankfully there is an easy fix, and here is how to do it :
Here are the four easy steps to turn off WiFi Assist.
Of course if you generally find yourself swimming in extra data allocation at the end of each month, or frequently find your phone clutches on to your home Wi-Fi well beyond the point of being useless as you walk down the street, this feature could be a great way to avoid buffering.
Copy and CudaDrive services to be discontinued.
Barracudas Copy and CudaDrive has provided easy-to-use cloud file services and sharing functionality to millions of users over the past 4+ years. However, as their business focus has shifted, they have had to make the difficult decision to discontinue the Copy and CudaDrive services and allocate those resources elsewhere. For more information on this decision, please view the blog post from Rod Mathews our VP & GM, Storage Business.
We know this comes as disappointing news to our some of our customers, but rest assured that we will do everything we can to take care of each of you in the manner for which Barracuda is known. We are currently migrating those customers effected another cloud storage solution even though we have urged them not to hold their important data totally in the cloud.
