How to clear cache memory and cookies in your Android browser


There is no doubt that your Android smartphone serves as the primary means of communication for your daily usage with friends, family, and even co-workers. Therefore the chance of you using the smartphone to access any information from the web is very high.

When surfing the internet, your smartphone will always load some data(cache and cookies) to serve various purposes. For example, most of this collected data allows the browser to understand your behavior online, providing relevant materials.

These cookies are not that harmful, but they have several negative impacts. For example, the bigger your browser’s cache, the more likely it is to be tampered with, including data from sites you no longer visit and tracking cookies. Since these cookies are also stored on your phone’s memory in the long term, they may also affect the performance of your mobile. Thus you may experience lagging problems on your browser or your smartphone.

To ensure that your browser functions smoothly, we advise that you delete this data from time to time. We explain in detail in this guide for Chrome, Samsung, and Firefox mobile browsers.


  • On your Android phone, open the Chrome app
  • To the right of the address bar, tap More
  • Tap on Settings and choose Privacy.
  • Click on Clear browsing data and History
  •  Choose a time range, like Last hour or All time.
  • Tap Clear data.

You may also erase stored Passwords, Autofill Data, and Site Settings by selecting the Advanced option. Everything will be destroyed without consent if you press the Erase button. So be cautious.


For Browsers available on Samsung smartphones, this command can be easily accessed from phone settings rather than the browser.

  • Go to the settings
  • tap on Applications
  • go to Samsung Internet and then on Storage.
  • You may Clean the cache and Clean the data from the Storage menu at the bottom.


  • Press the icon with the three tiny dots (vertically arranged) as seen on the firefox browser
  • choose Settings
  • Delete Browsing Data from the drop-down menu.

Although you cannot specify a date range as you can with Chrome, you may be more particular about the sort of data you want to remove. Additionally, Firefox provides users who do not want their data to be saved after the Application has been closed. The option “Delete browsing data when closed” in the Settings will come in handy here,
