Clear App Data on Android
Each of the apps installed on your device collects files to reference later. These files are tagged among other app cache and data. While these files can help save you loading time, they can also trigger some random app glitches. In addition, these files also occupy some segments of your phone’s overall storage. Thus, clearing app cache and data is recommended from time to time.
Clearing cache deletes temporary data while clearing data permanently deletes all app data including logins, game progress and other saved information in the app. This is often used among other potential fixes to app-related issues on the phone.
Depicted in this quick walkthrough is the actual process of clearing app data on the Galaxy M62.
Easy Steps to Clear App Data on Galaxy M62
If necessary, take note of all your app credentials beforehand. Once you’re all set, you may proceed with these steps.
1. To get started, access the main settings by tapping on the Settings icon from the Home screen or Apps viewer.
2. While on the settings menu, scroll to find and then tap Apps. Another screen opens with a list of all apps installed on the phone.
3. Find the app that you’d like to clear data from and then tap on it. The App info screen will then appear.
4. While on the Apps info screen, scroll down and then tap Storage. More details about the App’s storage usage including cache and data will show up on the next display. Beneath the screen are the commands to clear data and clear cache.
