In recent days, cases of large volume access caused by link prefetching have been reported frequently.
Prefetching continuously allows web browsers to access links in the background, while viewing a web page.
It results in large volume data downloads or access, even though the user intends to use the service in a proper manner.

We strongly recommend that you turn off the prefetching. Please follow the instructions below.
It has been reported that the problems are most likely to happen with Microsoft Edge.
Thank you for your cooperation.
