    So, how to you clear your data usage?
    Well, unfortunately, one can clear data usage only on a rooted device. But, if your phone is not rooted, then there is a workaround for that as well. We’ll come to that later. First, let’s see how to clear data usage if you have root access.

    For Root Users

    So, how to you clear your data usage?
    Well, unfortunately, one can clear data usage only on a rooted device. But, if your phone is not rooted, then there is a workaround for that as well. We’ll come to that later. First, let’s see how to clear data usage if you have root access.


    For Root Users

    Start by opening your file explorer (if you don’t have any, install ES file explorer) and then go to /data/system/netstats. Under the netstats folder, delete all files and reboot your device. This will clear everything under ‘data usage’.


    For Non-Root Users

    If your device is not rooted, then you can not clear the ‘data usage’ without resetting your device to factory settings. But, you can change the data usage cycle and get the desired results. (Well, kind of).

    Start by turning on your mobile data first (important), then go to settings > data usage > tap on the present date cycle > change cycle > select today’s date. This will reset your data from the present date. You can still see the older data usage, though.

    Note: The ‘change cycle’ option is hidden by default. So to make it visible, you need to turn ON mobile data first.


    Alternative method

    To get more control on your data usage, I suggest you try my data manager. It lets you track; which apps is using how much data, how much bandwidth you spend every day/weeks etc.

    Start by opening your file explorer (if you don’t have any, install ES file explorer) and then go to /data/system/netstats. Under the netstats folder, delete all files and reboot your device. This will clear everything under ‘data usage’.


    Just wanna help po..tested! Thanks! If it helpful please don't forget to like it.
