Do you use Google Chrome, Firefox or Samsung Internet on your phone? Every time you access the web, be it Google Chrome, Firefox, or Samsung Internet, your browser collects and stores data. No matter what Android smartphone you use, it’s a good decision to start cleaning this data regularly. Here’s how you can easily clear your phone’s browser cache and cookies.

Your cookies and cache contain this information, which allows your phone to quickly connect to your accounts and load frequently visited websites. Cookies are small text files that websites create when you visit them. By preserving browsing data, they make your online experience more convenient. The cache saves page elements, such as graphics, so they open faster on your next visit. However, this data accumulates over time, taking up space on your phone and most likely incorporating cookies that track your browsing activity in order to deliver targeted advertisements. For example, when you visit an e-commerce platform to buy or check the price of a product, you start seeing advertisements for the product you searched for on the platform or other websites and their price comparisons.

Deleting them solves problems such as loading and formatting the site. It may seem difficult to clear cookies and browser cache from your Android phone, but it’s actually easier than it looks. If so, we’ll teach you how to improve your privacy and maybe even your speed by clearing the cache and cookies on your phone.
