A default setting available on Android and iOS is to reset the network settings. Whenever you have a Wi-Fi / Bluetooth problem with your cell phone, such as Wi-Fi won't connect or signal keeps dropping, someone will definitely suggest resetting network settings.

 

What they don't tell you happens later. Or is it safe to reset it? You'll find all the answers in this post where we dive into the wake of restoring network settings on Android and iOS devices.

 

Let's start. 

WHAT IS RESET OF ONLINE INSTALLATION

When you reset the network settings, all network-related settings will return to their original state. In their original state, we strive to see how they would look and work on a new device, or when you completely reset your device (factory setting).

The reset network settings affect your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, VPN and mobile connections. Basically, you have to set them up from scratch.

 

Let's take a look at them one by one and see what works.

 

WI-FI NETWORK and PASSWORD

Wifi is one of the main things interrupted by network settings reset. It will delete all network files stored on your phone along with their passwords. This means that after the reboot, you will need to connect to a network and enter your network information again. It's a good idea to write down your email passwords before resetting them.

For iOS users, passwords stored in iCloud keyboard will also be deleted after network settings are restored. However, it is a simple trick to avoid this. Turn off the key fob on your phone before restoring network settings. After resetting these settings, log in to the keychain again so that your passwords are there.

 

If Wi-Fi is turned off on your device, it will also turn on. So if you use cell phones regularly and hate to keep wifi, please turn it off manually after reset.

 

FUN FACTS: Wi-Fi signals sent by a router are generally ring poles.

CELL SETTINGS

Another area affected is the cell configuration. These include your favorite cell phone types (2G, 3G, 4G or LTE) and network options. SMS, phone calls and other traditional telephone services are ineffective. Even the mobile data settings are not deleted if your SIM card remains in the phone.

 

VPN settings

Finally, resetting your network settings also changes your virtual private network (VPN) settings. All VPN information such as server name, password, VPN type, etc. will be deleted from your phone.
