Clearing your browser cache often is good as it helps you to:

  • Avoid using old forms
  • Allow applications to run better and faster on your computer
  • Protect your personal private information

When you visit a website, these are what your browser actually stores:

  • downloads, including older versions of forms
  • information, including the location of the site that you visited
  • files which are used to run online applications

You should clear your browser’s cache in order to update to the most recent version of an online programme. This is because if the cache is not cleared, the earlier forms can still be visible. As a result, surfing websites may experience access issues due to outdated files that are still present.

Here are steps to clear browser cache on Google Chrome:

Firstly, open Google Chrome. Download the latest version HERE.

Next, click the three dots icon in the browser (located at top right).

Thirdly, click Settings that appears in the drop-down list.

After that, click on Privacy and security at the left on this page.

Then, click Clear browsing data to clear your browser cache.

Lastly, select the time range of the browsing data that you wish to clear and click Clear data.

Congratulations! You have just successfully removed the trash out of Google Chrome.
