Broadband data usage

B6EE884D-0240-4830-A76E-8E46E5876B2C.png

Was just wondering if there's anyway to check which devices were connected in the last month and how much data they used. This is because a couples Months ago I used 500gb and the previous was 2.2GB. Quite a large jump so I'm thinking someone else could be using my WiFi? Thanks in advance

@mkhan155Don't think that there is anyway to check which device(s) have downloaded data via the router or the app.

 

You can check which devices are connected to the network via the app at the time in taking the broadband test.

Could have just been a one off month where you downloaded a lot of TV shows or some devices did lots of updates. Or perhaps a game update on a console/PC?

quite a large amount. Don't think ive ever been above 700gb even in lockdown. The sky hub stats show a lot of unknown devices. The sky tester should pinpoint the devices better I'm guessing ?

No, it doesn't detect or log individual devices. 'Unknown' just means a MAC address lookup hasn't identified a device manufacturer: it doesn't imply the hardware isn't known to you.
