How to clear App Cache & Data for Android 6.x (Marshmallow)

You might have some problems with an Android app once in a while, but rather than reinstalling the app you can try clearing the App Cache & Data instead.

This will usually solve most of the minor issues and also helps free up storage space on your device, but please take note that it will also  clear any login details or custom data that you had saved in the app.

The instructions below will guide you on how to do so on your Android 6.x (Marshmallow) devices. If you are still on an older version of Android i.e. Lollipop (5.x) , KitKat (4.4), kindly refer to the article here:
