Is It Safe to Perform the Network Settings Reset?
It’s completely safe to reset network settings on your mobile device. After performing this operation, you do not lose any of your personal data like photos, pictures, music, and so on. Furthermore, your contacts will still be intact on the phone.
However, there’s a catch. You will face slight inconveniences like having to manually log in and enter the password all over again in your previous Wi-Fi connections. Likewise, you can get annoyed because you have to pair all your audio devices like speakers and headphones before streaming audio over Bluetooth.
Also, one key point to keep in mind is that Device Reset is completely different from a Network Reset.
While no personal data is modified or deleted after a network reset, the device reset can wipe out all the data on your device. It will basically restore your phone to factory settings.
So, even if you are considering a device reset, we recommend you create a backup of all the essential data on the phone, and you can restore it later.
Why Is My Internet Slow Even After Resetting Wi-Fi Networks?
If resetting didn’t improve your Wi-Fi speed, chances are you have subscribed to an inadequate speed internet package compared to your data consumption. Another reason would be that many unauthorized people are using the same Wi-Fi network because you didn’t change the password after resetting your network settings.
