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.

 

To clear the cache and data for an app, follow these steps:

 

  1. Touch the Notification bar and slide down.
  2. Tap the Settings icon.
  3. Scroll to 'Phone,' and tap Apps.
  4. Tap the All tab.
  5. Navigate to and select the application to clear.
  6. Tap Clear Cache.
  7. Tap Clear Data.
