Clear app cache and data

Clearing cache or data from an app can fix some software problems. If you clear data, any data stored in that app is lost, such as settings, login information, and saved games. If you don't want to clear the data, try just clearing cache first. If you still experience problems, then clear data too.

  1. From any Home screen, tap Apps.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Scroll to 'PHONE,' then tap Apps.
  4. Scroll left to the ALL tab.
  5. Tap the desired application.
  6. Tap Clear Data.
  7. Tap OK.
  8. Tap Clear Cache.
