    You cannot get rid of app but you can disable it. The same thing happened to me and now it is all good. Go to settings and then scroll down to application manager and find app and click on it and then you will see various options.

    I have a 10GB plan, i share between 5 other phones, all the other phones have used less than 500MB and suddenly my phone has used over 10GB in the past 2 days! Done nothing different! Lately i have also seen Google + eating up all the battery on my phone. Now this...

    07/04/2014 11:44 AM 1.37831GB
    07/04/2014 11:22 AM 1.93131GB
    07/04/2014 8:58 AM 4.36298GB

    So basically yesterday on July 4th i used almost 7.5GB of data and i did nothing out of the ordinary, now im over my limit with Verizon! WTF Google Plus? I have backup set to WIFI only, guess i will check the box that says "restrict background data" and see if that helps.

    Yesterday I went through 1.76gb in less than 12 hours putting me just under my limit with 17 days to go. It's crazy. It happened a couple of months ago when I first got my S5 because I forgot to set it to back up on WiFi only. I checked and it's still set that way. I checked WiFi usage and G+ used just under 20gb in the last 3 days. Being in Canada the carriers here rape you for data charges. Overages are $5 for 100mb up to 1500mb. Of course it's pretty much impossible to get any support.

    Suddenly high data usage (Google+?)-2014_07_14_20.42.47.png
    I hit 22 GB in one week and $500 data charge (thank you, Rogers and Google!). I hate Google+. Many reasons, this is one of them.

    I too am a victim of this .On WiFi, google plus gobbled up ~10 GB of data in the background in just a month. Deterioration of bandwidth ,poor battery and a doubled up bill were the imminent results. After noticing that Google+ was the culprit I successfully disabled the app (settings>apps>google+) and uninstalled its updates as well... what the app did with 10gb of data is still a mystery.

    This happened to me to. I am in South Africa where Data is still very expensive and running up 10 GB in 3 weeks on a Samsung Mini s4 is a huge problem. I hope by restricting background will solve this. Where did 10Gb of data go to?? All the vids and photos on my phone is not even 5 Gb?

    Is it better to rather disable Google plus?

    Hi, I was able to disable google+ yesterday after it used up 50% of my data even though I was not using it. I was told by my carrier to contact Google to alert them.

    I had a sudden spike of about 2gb allegedly all from email in a single day. That'd take about 68,000 emails according to an online data calculator I found. I sent about 25! 2gig is half my monthly allowance! So halfway through the month I'm now out of data. My provider has given me extra data free but refuse to accept I didn't use the data.

    Hi, turn on 'data saver,' that will take care of it. pull down from the top, you will see settings gear with a down arrow, data saver is in there, touch it to turn it on and you're set

    Hi everyone,

    I normally use most of my 2gb of data in a month. However, suddenly since a new billing cycle started 2 days ago, I have already gone over the limit! I haven't been doing any more data-intensive activities than I usually do; maybe an hour of Pandora and a few texts.
    Additionally, my phone is running out of battery much faster than it used to.

    I checked my data usage and over 99% of it was from Google+.
    I don't even use Google+. I've literally never opened the app.

    I would like to uninstall Google+ or do anything to stop Google+ from using all my data. I went to settings->apps->google+, but there was no option to uninstall or disable

    Any advice on how to keep google+ from using all my data? Thanks very much!

    okay i had this issue for ages and couldnt find a solution for the life of me. idk if its the same for all of you but i hadnt updated my phone and thats why it was using all my data. even though i had auto updates off, it was trying to update anyway and kept failing. connect to wifi and update your phone to the latest by checking in about device. androidos now uses less than 1mb a day for me, whereas before it was using upwards of 200mb.
