How To Clear App Cache And Data On Android Lollipop

One of the basic things every Android owner should know is how to clear app cache and data. When you have any issues with apps, such as freezing, crashing, or if you have to wait for a long time for the app to load, the first thing you need to do is clear app cache, and if that doesn’t help to clear app data (this will delete the info application has stored, for instance, you will have to enter your username and password again when you launch the app next time). The process is similar for all Android versions, but if you recently switched from iOS you may need some help in this field. That’s why we create all these how-tos. In this article, we will show you how to clear app cache and data on Android Lollipop.

Launch the app and see if it is working normally. If not, you can clear app data. Here is how:

  • Go to Settings
  • Click on Apps
  • Find the misbehaving app and tap on it
  • Tap Clear data
  • When a window with the question “Delete app data?” shows up, click OK to confirm the action.
