Datafree Connect is an enterprise solution to enable staff and team members to use essential work related apps on their Android smartphones datafree.

Setting up Datafree Connect for your organisation is a simple process using the Connect Portal online dashboard:


  1. Configure one or more workspaces with a name, logo, data limits, and list of Android apps that will work datafree.
  2. Add the names and phone numbers of employees and team members to each workspace.

Employees and team members simply download the Datafree Connect app from the Google Play or Huawei App Gallery app stores and authenticate their phone number to enable datafree access for the selected apps in their Connect Workspace.

Individual employees and team members can belong to one or more Connect Workspaces.

Enterprise Value Proposition

Teams, Zoom, Slack or any other app, your enterprise relies on team member use of productivity apps for daily business activities. With today’s remote, hybrid and gig economy workforces, the use of these productivity apps comes at a cost to the employees in the form of mobile data.

Expecting your employees and team members to foot the cost of a mobile data bill is problematic. It decreases their productivity which in turn affects your bottom line. They may run out of data while on an important call, miss a delivery request, decide not to upload an important report, unable to access a payslip or clock in and out of work. All because of unaffordable data costs.

With Datafree Connect you can reverse bill the specific mobile apps which your enterprise relies on for business, thereby making them datafree to use for employees and team members.Optionally enabling authentication on the Connect Client is a great way to dynamically control who has access to your datafree apps.

Workspace Reporting, Limits and Alerting


We log data usage for your Datafree Connect Workspace so that you can see exactly how much data has been used by your employees. In addition, our reporting shows how much data each user has consumed.

We have the ability to place usage limits on:

  • Total data usage for the workspace
  • A per-user limit that applies to all users in your workspace

We send email alerts at 50%, 80% and 100% of the limits to the list of email addresses you have provided.
