Before moving on, let me just say that no one wants it when their mobile phone's prepaid credits mysteriously disappear. This is especially true if one is saving their mobile load to register to a specific promo (may it be data or traditional voice / SMS services).

Unfortunately, here in the Philippines, many users will attest that their prepaid balance has suddenly vanished. Since the user's prepaid balance has been deducted without their consent, obviously, they would blame the mobile operator. Some of these users will even go so far as to accuse the telecom company of stealing their prepaid credits, hence the birth of the term Nakaw Load.

Anyway, in this post, I wouldn't be discussing what is this so-called "Nakaw Load" or how does it occur since I have already explained it quite extensively in the post below:

Instead, this post aims to guide the reader on how to use Datally so that they can avoid being victims of stolen load or unexpected missing credits. So without further ado, let's start.

What is Datally?

Datally is formerly known as Triangle (so if you have been reading Triangle-related posts before, well, you have been somewhat briefed about Datally).

This particular app is available at the Playstore for free and is quite easy to catch since it is actually developed by Google so rest assured that it will be at the very top of search results (besides it has a unique name so there you go).

Research also shows that the tech giant has already had the brand trademarked which is excellent news for for millions of users – especially those from developing nations.

What is Datally's Purpose?

The app itself has many functionalities. But the ones related to this post's objective is its data usage (a) Tracking; (b) Saving and; (c) Monitoring capabilities.

As the name implies, the app boasts that it can save the user's data usages by up to 30%. Please take note that the figure is in percentage. For those who are not aware, a savings of up to 30% is really something (its like having a 30% discount). In fact, the screenshot below shows a data saving that can reach up to 68% (whoa!!!)

Data Tracking and Saving are Correlated

Basically, data tracking and saving is correlated with each other. Before one can save data, he / she must know what app or background is consuming up bulk of the allocation (this is the Tracking part)

Once you are able to pinpoint what component eats up data like MMs, then you can control its usage through the app. By configuring usages through Datally, you will have better control of your data cosumption..

Data Monitoring Capability

As for Datally's monitoring ability, just like other apps, the app can display data usage for different time intervals (for daily, weeks, etc...)

However, unike other apps, Datally has this sub function that shows the user how much data allocation is remaining as well as its date of expiry.

Needlees to say, this particular functionality is extremely useful for all users who are conscious about their data usage. WIth Datally, users will have a better view on to track and control their data usage especially if they are not enrolled to unlimited data or is afraid of being throttled due to excessive usage.

Datally and Anti Nakaw Load

Datally and Anti Nakaw Load

If you have read up to this point (and not just browse the above info), then you'll have an idea on how Datally can prevent the so-called "Nakaw Load" (to recap, Nakaw Load is the term coined by FIlipino users if their prepaid credits has unexplicably vanished or if their prepaid balance has been deducted without them knowing).

As mentioned above, Datally helps the user track and controls their mobile data usages. Because of this, the user has a better understanding on where, when, and how their data has been consumed.

To better illustrate this, let's look at the following scenario:

1. Subscriber has 25 load credits and is registered to a promo with 1GB of data allocation

2. User watched YouTube videos with High Definition for 3 hours

3. A text notification was received stating that the mobile's prepaid balance is now empty (zero credits)

When this happens, user simply opens up Datally and look at how much data was consumed up to that point. If it is over 1GB then it only follows that the mobile device has consumed all the allocation of the enrolled promo and has charged the remainder of the data usage from the mobile's prepaid credits at standard rates.

Again, Datally is just a tool to help the user gain better control and tracking of his / her data usage. With this nifty app, one can better understand when and how data allocation has been consumed.
