Like any other operating system, Android also requires that you frequently clear its cache in order to work properly. Simply, when there is activity on the device, there is a lot of “junk” created, which, among others, also includes cache, and if you don’t clear it from time to time, your device will slow down with time, until it becomes almost unusable.
In other words, cache clearance is an important part of Android maintenance and should be done regularly. For that reason, knowing how to do it yourself can help you a lot and allow for your Android device to always work at its best. Here’s what you need to do:
How to Clear Cache on Android
If you want to clear the Android cache by yourself, this is what you should do:
- First, you have to enter Settings
and then go to Apps.
- Once you enter them, go to “Manage apps”,
and enter its menu (three dots in the top-right corner).
- In the newly opened window, select “Show all apps”, find the app you want to clear of cache, and open it.
- Now, select “Clear data”, located at the bottom of the screen,
choose “Clear cache”
and confirm that by pressing “OK”,
or go to “Storage”,
select “Clear data”,
then “Clear cache”
confirm that with “OK”, and that is it. Whichever of the two options you select, your app’s cache will now be cleared.
