How do I clear Google Chrome’s cache?


“Cache” is a word we come across quite often. However, many people have a poor understanding of the cache. Literally, cache is a French word that means “hidden” or “hidden”. The field of computer science has assigned this name to a type of memory, which is characterized by “hidden”.

What is cache? It is one whose function is to store instructions and data that the processor needs to access frequently. For example, when you visit a website, relevant information has to be loaded, which ideally should be available quickly and fluently. The cache is responsible for storing this information as a kind of duplicate so that the user will have the information ready almost immediately when they reopen this page. Smartphone and tablet applications also have a cache to perform the same function.

So the purpose of the cache is to optimize the user experience and ensure that the data recovery is done quickly and efficiently. However, this sometimes puts additional strain on the memory of the devices.

In order to optimize the space used in the memories of your devices, it is recommended that you clear the cache of your applications and browsers from time to time. This way you won’t lose any important data. Cached data can naturally be restored. Every time you open a page, the cache data is reloaded if you don’t have it on your device.

  • There is no need to clear your Google Chrome’s cache every day: it is enough to do it once a week or every two weeks.
  • Don’t worry about losing important data while clearing your Google Chrome cache. Cached data can naturally be recovered because every time you open a web page the cache data is reloaded if it is not stored on your device.
