What Happens When You Reset Your Network Settings?

When you reset your Android phone’s network settings, Android erases all your saved Wi-Fi networks, removes paired Bluetooth devices, and deletes other network configurations. This can help resolve the issues caused by your current network settings.

After you’ve reset the settings, you can reconnect to your Wi-Fi networks, pair your Bluetooth devices, and set up other network features on your device.
