Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Enable or Disable Mobile Data From Home Screen in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

A couple weeks back, an insider named Chantal sent me an email and asked me a way to add mobile data button to her Samsung Galaxy S5 home screen. However, since Samsung Galaxy S5 doesn't have the default option or widget to let you turn on or off mobile data from home screen, then you need to install a third-party mobile data widget app from the Play Store to do so. To make it clearer, as the example, we'll use the mobile enabler widget app to let you turn on or off the mobile data from home screen.

How to turn on or off mobile data from home screen by utilizing data enabler widget?
Before doing this steps, make sure you have an empty space in your home screen. See the following steps to install the data enabler widget and then add it to home screen so that you can use it to quickly enable or disable your mobile data connection:
  1. Open Play Store app.
  2. Find the Data Enabler Widget app and then install it into your phone.
  3. Once the installation is completed, the data enabler will be added to your widgets list.
  4. Press the Home key to go to your home screen.
  5. Long press the Recent apps key or long tap in a blank area of the home screen and then tap Widgets .
  6. Find the Data Enabler 1x1 widget.
  7. Tap and hold the widget and then drag it to the home screen.
  8. Release the widget to place it on home screen.
  9. Now, you can quickly turn on or off your mobile data connection simply by single tapping the data enabler widget on home screen. The arrow icon within the widget turns white when it's enabled.
