I have always assumed BitTorrent was the traditional definition (P2P file sharing), but I'm not actively doing that on any of my devices that I know of.
I have spoken directly with Optus Support, asking them for a list of apps that might cause data to be grouped under the BitTorrent category (a fairly standard question I would have thought), but they were unsure. Obviously when the categories are set up, devs would categories apps accordingly so the list must exist.
It is using considerable data. I did note that my data plan is no longer available through Optus (you have to either pay less or more, my $49/month doesn't exist). In past months, I wouldn't even come close to using my total Gb/month, but I am now on the verge of going past my limit.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
Some apps and processes will keep using data in the background unless you change their settings to prevent it. You can find some further information here → https://www.optus.com.au/for-you/support/answer?id=1723.
