How can I delete ALL alarms in the stock Clock app?

I see that you can delete them one-by-one, but I have 50+ (created regularly with voice commands), and I'd like to get rid of them in one action.

I deleted all alarms in Android Jellybean 4.1.1 by performing the following operations in Settings > Apps > All > Clock:

Force stop
Clear data
Clear cache

YMMV

    It's very disappointing that this seems to be the best option. Like you, I create a bunch of alarms through voice commands. What I want is a command that lets me delete all alarms that are turned off, since most of them are but I would like to leave the few that are not. Your cache clearing trick obviously doesn't work for this. Poor design by Android. Jan 13, 2019 at 15:11
  • I wouldn't even understand that this option is missing if it were a niche app found in the depth of the google play store.. but the android stock clock? really?!

Incredibly, this is still an unaddressed issue in 2022. I have noticed that it's possible to ask google assistant to delete all of your active alarms -- meaning the ones that are scheduled to ring.

So one inconvenient way to deal with this, would be to activate all the alarms manually (which is a bit faster than deleting them manually) and then ask google assistant to 'delete all of my alarms'.

Careful btw: asking Google assistant to 'delete all of my inactive alarms', will actually delete only your active ones (which is how I discovered this).

At the top of the page there is a garbage can. You can click on the can, which will show a multi select option, which lets you mark each alarm for deletion.
