Hi guys,

This morning I just found out that unzip is taking 354MB of data just for itself. I never use this app, I just have it installed in case other apps use it as a library (ES file explorer, TB and similar?). Anyone knows what might have caused this crazy usage?

The unzip app has 0B of cache and 0B of data on storage.

maybe it's storing data from previously extracted files. check you file explorer for the folder of the app.

Damn. Now I understand. It's my fault due to a very poor explanation (noticed the issue early in the morning, didn't even have breakfast back then). I shoiuld have said 354MB of mobile data, either sent or downloaded.

you can restrict background data on certain apps.
