I have a Galaxy Samsung S10+

 that has suddenly started using a lot of data even when I'm not using it.  The settings on the phone are the same as another I own which does not have the problem.

The smart guy in the store said turn off the network, I don't see that as an alternative.  I've removed Chrome from the phone and then added it back on to see if maybe the app had a problem.  I don't know if that has worked yet, not enough time has elapsed to see.

Version info

I'm looking for some suggestions, any help is appreciated
