    OMG!! 

    This is now working!!!!  I can tell who is using the most data with which device!!!!!!!!!  

    Thank you!!!!!!  For this alone, eero 6 was worth the upgrade.  This is the biggest giant step in my smart home world since Nest thermostat.  Thank you!

    Even if I don't get the monthly data for free, it is very useful.

      Mgreer316 where are you seeing the stats now? I’m on v6.0.2 and I’m still not seeing individual network usage on the phone app.

      Nkrueger38 if you're on iOS it's suppose to be available some time this week according to a post in reddit. But to answer your question, the "Activity" network icon on the bottom is where the stats are.

      Jlogsdon i am using iOS and this is working for me. The data is located under Activity. It’s called Data Usage.

      Mgreer316 I meant I upgraded to eero 6 from another old system - Apple Time Capsule.

      Jlogsdon I do use iOS. I still have nothing, unless I need to purchase secure, I haven’t done that.

      Mgreer316 Do I need Secure tho to see it? Or will it b free? I’m still not seeing it but some posts with iOS show it now.

      Nkrueger38 Yes and no. You'll get the current week's aggregate and device usage free. However, if you want to drill down to daily use or monthly use and individual device hourly use you'll have to pony up the $3/month of $30/year Secure fee.

      Mgreer316 thanks man, I hope I see it soon. I’m on the latest version but still nothing, and I’ve seen other iOS posts having it. Hopefully it’s a quick role out

      Mgreer316 I should also ask, is the daily and monthly worth it? I’m in IT so I feel like it is, but without seeing it, looking for feedback.

      Nkrueger38 Well, IMO the daily is for the stat nerds (of which I am one). But the monthly is important because that's the basis for which you might be charged overage by your ISP.

      Nkrueger38 I should also add that the ability to drill down on a specific device to see hourly data consumption will help you isolate where data leaks are. And if you have younger kids you can see if anybody is gaming or on social al media at 3AM when they should be asleep!

      Mgreer316 thanks for the insight man! Stat nerd here too! Can you drill down deep enough to see actual data tho? Like 8gb https, 3mg dns, 2gb file share ect? Per device? 
      how deep is the drill down is where I’m going. its only $30 but I wanna make sure it’s worth it :-)

      Nkrueger38 No, not that level of granularity. This is as fine as it gets.

      I force closed the IOS app and opened a few hours ago...a pop-up message announced it and you can touch that or the new Data panel in Activity.

    This is on iOS now. Example screenshot below. So much for the people saying it was impossible, can't do, etc. Nice job and very well done.

      the_mace so we use the iOS app, using 3 eero pros, iOS is at the 6.0.2 -11 version for each eero.  But I still don’t see any detail device usage.

      Jlogsdon I didn't see it until today myself. Not sure what made it suddenly turn up. You do need an eero secure trial or paid subscription to get the data. I was on the trial still (5 days left) since my installation was recent. Maybe that's it?

      Jlogsdon Mine wasn't there this morning. Is now. No software updates in between. I suspect they are rolling it out on the server side.

      the_mace is that free or did you purchase Secure to see this now?

      Nkrueger38 I had the free trial for eero secure. After the stats came in I paid for the 1 year ($30). Next to the 8 Eeros I have the $30 didn’t make a dent.

      the_mace Wow! We hit 195GB last week and I thought that was high. But you're almost at 400! MIL is a data hog.  Start charging her! 🙂

      the_mace they don’t seem to have brought this to the eero U.K. app. Maybe it’s because I only have eero rather than eero pro?
