The last option (wipe cache) is the only one always being safe, and never hurts in case of instability/hangs. So regardless what your issue is, you can for sure give that a try. Apart from that, as the previous comments already suggested, you need to provide more details for us to be able to help you. E.g. when did the problem start, what did you do last, anything installed lately, or maybe even fiddling with the system using root-powers?

comment How to know if an keyboard/input related app is safe to use
I've never heard about an "advertisement permission", nor is it listed in any of the references known to me. I admit it's not easy checking permissions of apps you have not installed (thanks to Google), but there are multiple sources: Google Play itself (a bit tricky), AppBrain as an alternative front-end to it (not always complete), and also my applists (not covering all apps, and relying on other sources for those details). Checking after install is an useful additional step though, definitely :)

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! This happens to be a question frequently asked on our site. Have you tried our on-site search? See How do I search? for help using it. Moreover: As it is that frequent, we've even summed up background and solutions in our insufficient-memory tag-wiki, which you might wish to consult. I'm pretty sure that will get you started. Good luck!

comment Unable to see all folders on Moto G using FTP
Well, I doubt the problem is solved for the OP. I also doubt any app will solve it (except one that roots his device). Question was not how to transfer files in general – but rather how to access certain directories, which are protected from "normal users" (e.g. without root it's impossible to show the contents of /data).
