Data usage and Bandwidth

Posted on 2022-04-05 Updated on 2023-05-23

Does InMillion App (IMA) controls or handles the usage of data?

Some of the questions we have received from our users and especially from who have a proxy plan with a bandwidth limitation:

  • How to limit the usage of data?
  • How to set an IMA app to don’t consume a lot of my bandwidth plan (download/upload)?

Short answer:

It all depends on your page contents: Images, Videos, Scripts and Texts. IMA doesn't intervene, handle or change the visit process, it just passes the command to the browser to start loading the page, then passes the events commands (Click & Scroll) therefore: There’s no option to control data usage.

Detailed answer:

To understand the real job of IMA or how it works, remember that it uses the real Chrome browser so, what’s happening when you (personally) open your Chrome and visit a website? The same is happening for each visit sent by IMA.

You may ask: usually, I don’t consume my monthly bandwidth plan, why this started to happen after using IMA?

Before: you were visiting your website 10, 50 or 100 times a day. Suppose that each page consumes 5mb so 100 visits were consuming 500mb (100 x 5mb) which’s a normal and not noticeable usage.

With IMA (i.e. Web Traffic Generator) you’re sending a lot of visits, for example:

If you sent 10,000 visits to the same page, it will consume 50gb (10,000 x 5mb). That’s it.


In the example above, we calculated the data usage of one page only. If your settings contain Random Clicks for 2 links only, it will open 3 pages for each session, which means that you’ll triple this value. It’s just a math formula 😉

Again: IMA behaves exactly the real browser human behavior.
