How to set limits on emails, facebook etc so phone doesn't have to much stored.

I have att phone android.  New for me.I can't find the step and where to find, how to set a limit to what stays stored and what will auto delete.  Bec, I don't know how to  delete more than one email, facebook, message, etc at a time.  I'd like to not have alot of old info stored on phone. Thank you  so much for your help.

Hello @reneeandjerry 

 

There is usually a way to remove more than one item at the time, definitely for text messages and emails, but I'm not sure about Facebook messenger. What kind of phone are you using, make/model?

 

Thank you,

Dmitriy

Many android phones look and feel slightly different. When you're in your messaging or email app, see if there are any "check" boxes next yo your messages, if you see those, when you start checking them an option to delete should appear on top or the bottom of your screen. If you don't see that, there should be a menu bottom (3 dots on top of the screen, or I think it might be under the screen looking like few horizontal lines), in there you should find an option to "select" or "delete multiple".

 

Let me know if you need more help.

 

Thank you,

Dmitriy
