    Clear an App’s Data or Cache:

    NOTE: if an app doesn’t work as intended or takes up more storage than it should, you can try fixing it by clearing the app’s cache or data.

    WARNING! By clearing the app’s data, you will delete all of your custom data stored within the app, such as login information, custom settings and more. To avoid losing personal app data, clear ONLY the app cache.

    1. Open “Settings
    2. Go to “Apps & Notifications” and switch to “All apps
    3. Select the desired app and tap “Storage
    4. Tap “Clear cache
    5. If clearing the cache didn’t fix the issues, tap “Clear data” (Check the WARNING above)

    5. To factory reset the device, tap “Erase all data (Factory Reset)” > “Reset phone” > “Erase Everything
