For the last two monthly cable billing periods my date usage has spiked enormously, from 550 GB per month to 1.5 TB's. The only process using more data than Fing is "Host Process for Windows Services." I've included two photo's, the first one during a two hour period shows the number 94 services Fing has used. The second photo shows a couple of those services including Facebook and Netflix neither of which I have ever used. Could someone please explain. I also removed Fing for one month with the intention of checking but unfortunately
something else took my attention.

    @hopad, I moved this to the Fing Desktop section for relevance and visibility as from your screenshot I'm assuming your using desktop.

    No worries, just getting it to the right section.

    Fing can use up a bit of data when it runs connectivity and performance tests.
