What happens if i clear data on kodi?

Last Updated on February 23, 2022 by Kennedy

As mobdro is no longer working since last year march, the demand for kodi is on the increase and there’s no doubt it is one of the best though with lots of difficulty compared to mobdro and others. 

Now if you have set up your kodi with all the repository files and it starts to misbehave which warrant clearing data from the app. 

The question will be;

What happens if i clear data on kodi?

If you clear data on kodi app, the app will reset and you will lose all the settings including all the repository files installed on the app. It is like returning the app back to when you first installed it on your mobile phone. 

You can easily clear data on any given android app but I don’t recommend doing such on kodi as it requires lots of tutorials to get it started and to stream with it.

However, if your kodi app is seriously misbehaving then you don’t have any option than to clear data from the kodi app.

But before going ahead with the process I recommend you to first note down all the repository files you installer on your kodi and then go ahead to clear data from the app.

What is Kodi data?

Kodi data is a storage where all the settings made, AddOns or repository files installed on the app are stored in the device. 

With kodi data, you have all your settings saved without re-setting your Kodi every time you opened the app. Through kodi data you can install AddOns or repository on kodi and further stream online. 

But the question usually asked by kodi users is what happens if i clear data on kodi, and just like I said earlier on, once you clear data on kodi it will automatically reset the app back to it’s default settings.

If your kodi is misbehaving and which the only way to fix the problem is by clearing kodi data, then you don’t have any option but to do it and afterwards start all over to install all the AddOns back to the kodi app. 

How to clear data from data

This is only possible for android users. To clear data on the kodi app, kindly open the settings app and scroll down to app, tap and open apps. 

Now search for kodi or scroll down until you found it. Open the kodi app and tap on storage, look below your screen and you will see clear data just like on the picture below.

Tap on the clear data button and clear data from the kodi app. 

HOW TO CLEAR DATA ON FOR KODI ON A FIRE STICK

Turn on Fire stick and select Settings. Select Applications, followed by tapping on Manage Installed Applications.

Select Kodi and tap on Clear Data, tap on Clear Data once again and you are done clearing data on your kodi. Once again remember that once you tap on the clear data button to clear kodi data, you are resetting your lodi back to default settings. 

After you must have cleared data from the kodi app, open the app and start all over to add repository files on the app. It’s quite painful if you have lots of repository files installed on your kodi app and which you will start all over again to add them one after the other.

This is why I you don’t need to be clearing data from your kodi app unless there’s a need to do so.

So asking what happens if i clear data on kodi, bear in mind that you will lose everything settings, setup and repository files as it will automatically reset your kodi app back to default and it can be quite painful though for me.

How do I reset Kodi without losing addons?

The truth here is that there’s no way you can reset the kodi app without losing all the repository or AddOns, definitely all of them including the settings will be wipe out. 

So far there’s no means to backup settings and AddOns on kodi and which is very painful because once you reset kodi all the AddOns will be removed and you will start all over again to add the AddOns and which will be time consuming.

How do I delete data from Kodi?

Once you cleared data from the kodi you have automatically deleted data from the app cause everything will be wiped out including the AddOns or repository files you installed along with the settings made.

However, this is only available on android phone and tablet. That is to say you can only clear data on kodi app for android.

Kindly note that clearing data from kodi or any other app is like deleting data from the app cause clearing data is like resetting the app.

So you are automatically resetting the app back to it’s default settings.

Does clear data delete everything?

Yes of course, clearing data delete everything on the app which includes all the settings and configuration made on the app. However, clearing data from a mobile app doesn’t get rid of an account as one can login after resetting the app.

Once you tap on the button to clear data from a mobile app, you have in turn deleted all the saved data on the mobile app. This is why you shouldn’t be clearing data on a mobile app unless there’s a strong need to do so.

This bring to the conclusion of this post, what happens if i clear data on kodi.
