The option to share data on Glo has become very handy and at the same time very annoying to some people. Many GLO subscribers that do not know about this option have spent a lot of money buying data without the awareness that the subscription is being shared.

Even without your consent, your friend or someone else that already knows about this before you came across this post might have shared your data with themselves and they get to browse whenever you subscribe.

If you are a GLO subscriber and you notice that most times you subscribe, the data doesn’t last like it used to, you can check your data usage to see how much data you have used and you can also a  USSD code from GLO to check the person that is sharing your data with you and share or unshare data with someone as well.
