Deleting the Event Log

Because the FRITZ!Box has only limited space to store events, the oldest events are deleted at regular intervals to make room for new events. Every time the FRITZ!Box is restarted, all events are deleted as well.

In addition to this automated deletion of events by the FRITZ!Box, you have the option to delete all events manually.

  1. Select the "All" area in the selection list.
  2. Click on the "Delete List" button.
