Steps to clear application data on your Google Nexus 5

Clearing application data is a maintenance or troubleshooting step that removes application files and frees up memory.

In most cases, try clearing the application cache before clearing application data.

  • Clearing the application cache removes temporary files and frees up memory - your personal settings or information remain intact.
  • Clearing application data permanently deletes all your user information, settings, high scores, and credit card information - anything that you didn't originally download with the application.

  1. From the home screen, tap the All Apps icon.
  2. Scroll to and tap Settings.
  3. Scroll to and tap Apps.
  4. Scroll to and tap the preferred application.
  5. Scroll to and tap Storage.
  6. Tap CLEAR DATA.
  7. Review the message and tap OK.
  8. You've now cleared the application data.
