Default Google+ using a lot of data

In the last few weeks I have noticed a high data usage from Google +. See screens attached.

I have checked all settings and all syncs and auto back up have been disabled. Were disabled from the beginning. It's usage continues to go up from 25mb to 100mb a day. The data usage app states that it's all foreground data also.

Any help or suggestion's would be great.

Thanks

right, it says 500MB in the 'foreground', so that's probably from him having the application open and using it

Don't use Google+ at all. Don't remember the last time I used it. Have only opened to make sure nothing is syncing etc.

Don't take many photos either.

Delete it and just use the mobile version through a browser. I stopped using it because it eats Battery and data in the background.

I finally disabled Google+ because it was slaughtering my battery. I NEVER used it other than as an offline photo viewer (sync and auto upload were both off), but it was constantly running in the background and draining my battery. I finally ended up disabling Google+ entirely and just using the stock Gallery app, and my battery life has been fantastic since then.

Cheers for the replies.

If I disable it. Will apps that use it to back up (games) be affected?

There are no apps that use the Google+ app (unless you count the "Photos" app that is a part of the Google+ app). Google+ authentication that is used in 3rd party apps comes from Google Play Services.
