Mobile WiFi data used up without my consent

I have a 50 GB EE mobile internet contract and every month i either have some data left over or i use it all in the last couple of days , this month the whole lot was used mid month after something ate up all my data, I don't know what it was, is there any way I can prevent my data being used up without my knowledge ?

Has your PC just upated to the latest 1903 update? that would take up a lot of data.

I'm using an android tablet .

I did have some updates just before the data ran out.

Can i block updates ?

Are we talking about mobile data via a phone or tablet , or broadband data via ISP and router. Surely if we talk about Windows 10 1903 update, that only applies to a PC, not a mobile tablet? I use IOS on a phone and only have 4 gig mobile data- I never use that amount as data via wi fi is not counted and I ensure I am on wi fi for Major updates such as 12.3. My ISP home downloads are unlimited

50G a month, wow that's some downloading for a phone.

I used to have a 2G EE contract for my PC and not use it all.
