Expert:  Viet - Android Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry, were you able to try all my steps?

Does this issue only occur on the app name called Internet? And/or any other app?

Please let me know. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Viet - Android Tech replied 1 year ago.

Sorry, can you go to Safe Mode, then do not open anything, but right away, go to Settings -> Applications -> Application Manager -> ALL, then tap on the item Internet there in the long list, then Clear data
, then restart the phone normally
, then open Internet app and check.

Please let me know. Thank you.

tried that i clicked on internet icon pressed clear data it wasnt highlighted it didnt do anything

Expert:  Viet - Android Tech replied 1 year ago.

You are in Safe mode now right?

There is the word called Internet in Application Manager right?

How about the Clear Cache?

Then just power off / restart the phone normally and check.

If needed, open the Internet app, then see if it lets you do the following: Tap on the More menu at the top, then tap on Settings, then Privacy, then Delete Personal Data, then check all boxes, then tap on DELETE..., then check. Restart the phone again as needed.

Please let me know. Thank you.

yes i am in safe mode clicked on internet icon in applications nothing is highlighted no response

Expert:  Viet - Android Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry. So the clear data or clear cache button cannot be selected in Internet right?

In Safe mode, open the Internet app, then see if it lets you do the following: Tap on the More menu at the top, then tap on Settings, then Privacy, then Delete Personal Data, then check all boxes, then tap on DELETE..., then check. Restart the phone normally, then check. If needed, do that again in normal mode.

Please let me know. Thank you.
