No, the general assumption is not that preferences are meant to be cleared. I'd say that the opposite is the case: when you need to log in to use an application, you expect the application to remember you when you return.

My thought is, try implementing a way to have a swipe from the right to the left of the screen go from Basic to Advanced. It lets more advanced users know it's there without having them go into the Settings app, toggle a switch, quit out of your app, and relaunch to see the Advanced control set. Do it similar to how SnapChat's "chat" system works; in order ...
