If you are an Android user, then I guarantee you that you must be familiar with unfortunately app has been stopped error. I’m going to give you this quick fix about how you can troubleshoot ‘unfortunately app has been stopped error in Android.

Android is like my friend now, and it helps me whenever I need help or pass my leisure time. We love to play video games and enjoy music apps in Android that gives us pleasure. But, sometimes while we are in the middle of running Android apps/games Android users face this app stopped error.

So, if you also face this error sometime in your Android phone then I have brought you a solution for that. With this way, you can keep your phone clean and fast as well. I hate when I face “Unfortunately, app name has stopped error message” so, here I’m with a perfect solution.

How to fix ‘Unfortunately app has been stopped’ in Android

I’m sharing 4 ways to fix unfortunately app has been stopped in Android, and you much try to these:

  • Clear the app’s cache + data
  • Uninstall and reinstall the app
  • Turn it off and on again
  • Last option: do a factory reset

Clear the app’s cache + data

To clear the app’s cache and data you have to follow the steps below:

  • Go to your Android phone’s Settings
  • Go to Apps → Application manager
  • Go to All apps tab by swiping left
  • Scroll down to find your app, and tap on it
  • That’s where you can Clear data and Clear cache

Clear cache is a better way to let the app work with the new data rather than keeping the old data (Just clear cache). However, don’t use clear data because it will clear out entire app’s data  i.e., settings, files, and accounts. Just leave it unless you want to.

Uninstall and reinstall the app

It is the very first thing every Android user will do. Because if any app is creating hurdles while running we simply uninstall and reinstall the app from Google play store. But, if you haven’t uninstalled the app then please do that and hopefully, it will fix the issue.

Turn it off and on again

Before you do the hard reset on your device make sure you turn it OFF and turn it ON (This is known as a soft reset). Soft reset can buy you more time and it is really effective method when fixing app issues.

Finally, do a factory reset

If none of the above methods are helpful, then you should have to follow this last step which is called hard reset. This is the last method which will definitely fix the issue.

Make sure you backup your data before you hard reset your device. Hard reset will wipe everything from your device and make your device a default company made settings.
