So I ran into some network data usage issues. Basically, I tend to easily use up all my available wifi data, which is 1tb. I installed Glasswire to monitor my usage and I just realized, Nordvpn (the VPN I have) will use about the same amount of data as my programs (ie chrome).
I did some tests just now, I tried loading a youtube video for 1 minute. With VPN, both Nord and Chrome use roughly 15mb. Without VPN, same video, Chrome 15mb.
I did this test multiple times and they all have the same result: the VPN uses the (almost) same amount of data as the application (Chrome in my case). Currently, Nord is on 6gb and Chrome is on 4.6gb (Note that my laptop downloaded an update for Windows so Nord is slightly higher).
If I add all things up it will be about 5.5gb, roughly = 6. So the VPN uses the same amount of data as all other apps? Or is it a Glasswire visual bug? Does anyone have any idea?
