Remember that moment when you have launched some file for the first time and your smartphone asked to choose the default app for reading that type of documents? Unfortunately, you've been in such a hurry that you missclicked and chose the wrong app? Have you been wondering how to take it back or if it's even possible without a hard reset? Well, that's what the Reset App Preferences operation is for. At least partly, because this action can fix much more than just this particular problem.
The answer is simple - in the moments when your apps are misbehaving or you have suspicions that they're broken in some way and (what is really important) the "more peaceful" ways have failed.
For example, if your Facebook app doesn't want to let you in even though you are concerned that your account is valid or you use Facebook to log in some other application, but you have selected Google Chrome as the default choice for verifying your account on Facebook, or any other problem like this - try to restart your device or clean the Temporary Cache Files first. If that doesn't work, you can reset app preferences.
Why it matters? Because, in some apps, it may erase all your prefered settings and reconfiguring it can cause some problems for some less experienced Android users.
Down below you can take a look at how it works on Huawei devices.
As you can see it works for all disabled apps, notifications, all the defaults, data restrictions and permissions. It means that, after reset, your application will behave like for the first time you've launched it but with a small exception - your personal data won't be affected. In addition, if you configured some data restrictions for apps which are using the Internet connection, you'll need to do it again, because all of that will be restored to default.
It's the same with permissions. If your app demands access to your camera or SMS's, you will need to allow it once again. After that, we can move on to the most important part of this article.
Before that, you need to know that it's impossible to undo app preferences reset, so once clicked the reset button can't be "unclicked" and will restore all preferences to default. Also, we should mention that all the unwanted applications you have disabled, will automatically enable. Ok, knowing that, you're safe to start!
