[Off-Topic] [Device Team] [Fix] How To Fix 'Unfortunately App Has Stopped Working' Error

Hello Mi Fans,
I Hope you guys are having awesome time on community. We have all faced 'Unfortunately this App has stopped working' or 'Not Responding' errors on our devices, so Today I'm sharing a number of ways to solve that issue.

Let's start

Restart your device
It is the most simple solution and in the majority of cases simply turning your Phone off and then on solves many issues. So the first thing you should try if you get this error is to restart the device.

Reinstall or Update the App
If you are facing this issue in an application just head over to Playstore to check if your app is outdated. If yes, Then update the app to the latest version Your problem will be solved. Sometimes apps become outdated & do not function that smoothly, a gentle updatation can help smooth things over again. If not then you can try uninstalling the app and then reinstalling after a few seconds to check if you're still facing the same issue. If still the issue persist you can force stop the app to temporaily get rid of the error until a new update comes.

Clear the cache
Cache is the temporary files made by an application to make it work faster, but in some cases, older cache is the reason the app is crashing. To clear cache Go to Settings->Installed Apps->APP just click on Clear cache. You can also try clearing data of the app, but you should remember if you do so you would have to Set up the app again.

Install an older version the app
Sometimes apps start misbehaving due to a bad update of app from developers in such cases downloading APK of a previous more stable version of the app solves the issues with the app. Do remember not to download from untrustworthy sites as those may potentially contain some viruses.

Factory Data Reset
If none of the above fixes work for you then factory data reset is the only option left. It is not advised unless problem too big and none of the above methods are working because you will lose all your data. So if you are doing it, do remember to take a full backup. To Factory Reset your phone Go to Settings->Additional Settings->Backup and Reset->Factory data reset->Reset Phone. Then Login with your Mi account to confirm.

Do let us know if the above method worked for you and what do you generally do if you face a similar issue.
