This is particularly useful especially for a parent to limit a child’s mobile data usage in order not to incur extra charges if the data threshold is reached. Or to prevent the scenario of someone accidentally exceeding data usage without knowing, because the person is not so savvy with using smartphones yet.

Shouldn't it be "knowing it" instead?

Thanks.

I wouldn't like to try to explain it grammatically - but, to me, both sound OK.

I wouldn't use the "it". But then I wouldn't use "knowing" - I'd use "realising". With or without the "it".
