Clear your cache on Android

Your phone slowing down? Maybe it’s time to clear your cache on Android. Whether you are looking to clear the browser cache or clear the app cache. This article will help you achieve your goal. We’ll walk through why doing this can not only free up space on your Android phone but also make it run much faster.

If your phone is brand new then clearing the cache to free up space is going to be unnecessary. But as your phone fills up over time and you start to run low on space, this can affect performance. Deleting apps and offloading your photos to a cloud storage service is going to have the biggest impact, but clearing the cache on your browser and apps will also make a difference.

Clear your cache on Android

If you are looking to clear the cache on your phone’s browser to increase browsing speed then this is a quick and easy process. Most Android owners use Chrome, but regardless of which browser you use, there will be an option in Settings to clear the cache.

Here’s how to clear the cache in Chrome on Android:

  • Open Chrome
  • Tap the menu button (three vertical dots) in the upper-right corner
  • Select Settings
  • Tap Privacy and security
  • Choose Clear browsing data
  • Select the Time Range that you would like to clear
  • Tap Clear data
How to Clear App cache data

The latest phones nowadays come with built-in junk and cache cleaners that remove the need to go and check each individual app. But if you don’t trust these apps then you can always follow the method mentioned below to clear away all the clutter taking up your phone’s memory and slowing it down.

Clearing the cache on the rest of your apps can have a similar impact on your phone’s storage space and overall speed. This is also a very easy process to take off and you will not need any external or third-party apps to take care of your unwanted app cache and junk.

  • Open Settings
  • Select Storage
  • Choose Other apps
  • By default, this list will be ordered by the amount of storage the app uses
  • Select an app
  • Tap Clear cache
  • If you want to free even more space then Clear storage will delete all of its data including user data without deleting the app itself. So only do this for the apps that you remember login details for.
