How can I restrict mobile data usage on my Galaxy S6?

Galaxy S6 Restrict mobile data usage

Hi. I want to specify at the application level whether or not mobile data can be used - is there any way this can be done on the Galaxy S6 ? Restricting background data doesn't do this. I also don't want to set mobile data limits, or have to monitor mobile data usage. I simply want to know whether or not mobile data can be turned off for certain applications so that they only work when in a WiFi area

It has to be app specific. Meaning the app itself will have that option in its settings. If not, then nope.

Re: Galaxy S6 Restrict mobile data usage

If you go to settings, data usage, you can then select apps from within there. Once selected you can turn on "Restrict Background Data" on a per app basis.

That is the only way to restrict it from using any mobile data.
