Cache is a temporary storage area on a device. This memory helps the machine save background data or web browsers when you start them for the first time. Thanks to that, on the 2nd visit, you will see faster loading speed and loading speed. This helps users to use the phone more conveniently.

Example: When you visit a website for the first time, the cache stores this data so that the device does not need to download it again the next time you visit it. This saves time and data for the machine.

There are two caches on Android, the application cache - where all temporary files on the application are stored, and the Chrome cache - where the files of the web pages are stored.

Chrome is the default web browser on Android, so the article will cover this browser's cache. Other browsers will have their own caches.

You might be surprised to learn that temporary files in the cache can take up gigabytes of your phone's memory. If you're using one of Samsung's newest smartphones without a microSD card slot, you'll understand the value of an external memory card.

Some phones are frequently slow to load which could be a sign of a full cache. Clearing the cache makes the device work faster. This also frees up storage space.

But that doesn't mean you clear the cache daily, once every few months is best. You should monitor the cache regularly, when it starts taking up a lot of space or the phone is getting slower then it's time to do it.

Will clearing cache lose all your data?

The cache is where temporary files are stored. It has nothing to do with your data. For example, if you clear the cache for Facebook, it will not delete your account or any of your posts, comments, and photos.

The cache will slowly rebuild over time. Clearing the cache is like cleaning the phone. Remember to do this every few months to keep all your apps and web activity in tip-top shape!
