Teenager data usage

What apps are my teenage daughter using that is killing our data???  She's on wifi at home but something is using almost 9GB every month.  She closes her apps and makes sure her wifi is on.  But there is something we're missing.

On some phones, there is a data logger that shows how much data each app is using. On some phones, you can set those apps to only use wifi not cellular data.

My daughter started using SNAPCHAT. Her data use skyrocketed!  Fully 90% of her data usage could be attributed to SNAPCHAT.  The majority of her use of the product is at home with WiFi, so this was a surprise to all of us.
