What is Data sharing?
Now let’s zoom this into a classroom. Data sharing is the ability to share your mobile data subscription to your friends. In this case, you have to add your friend’s number to your list of data beneficiary. So anytime you subscribed or purchase a data, your friend will be tapping from it.
It’s just like sharing your data connection through hotspot to your friends. The little downside of this is that your friend or the beneficiary may finish your monthly subscription in no time if he’s a heavy internet user.
On the other hand, you will still be the one to control him and you can remove him from the list of your beneficiary anytime if you feel he is exhausting your subscription more than you plan.
