Greetings everyone!  Today, we’re going to tell you how to clear your cache from Google Chrome and other commonly used internet browsers! 

Why should I clear the cache?

Clearing the cache from Chrome or other browsers like Firefox, Edge, or Safari can benefit your computer.  It can help:

  • Protect your personal information

  • Your browser runs more efficiently for a better online experience

  • With loading or formatting issues, may even load faster

  • Prevent you from using old auto-fill on forms

  • Pro-actively stop scam pop-ups from appearing


Whenever you visit a website, your browser stores a temporary cached version of that webpage.  This enables your computer browser to efficiently bring up this website again in case you return to it.  Cached files generally contain saved data for the website as well such as text size preference, language, layout, etc.  

However, that same cached data can sometimes enable scam pop-ups to occur on your computer and no one wants to deal with that sort of scare.  In this article, we’re going to show you how to easily clear the browser cache from Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari.
