A lot of “free” apps ruin the default internet browser in Android phone by adding spammy search sites as your default start page. These search sites often look like legitimate search engines e.g. Google. Removing the app doesn’t remove this problem. Some of us even went on and reinstalled the whole OS. That’s not needed. Here’s the simplest way to reset your browser settings.
NOTE: All your internet browser data will be cleaned away, i.e. browser bookmarks, passwords, and anything else stored in browser cache will be lost.
- Go to “Settings“, then “Applications“, “Manage Applications“, and then choose “All“. You will see list of all applications.
- Find “Internet” in the list and tap it to open the options.
- Tap the options to clear all data. It’s usually “Clear Data” or “Clear Cache” option.
- Say OK if another prompt warns you about clearing all cached data.
That’s it. Your browser is clean again!
