Your Android smartphone collects pieces of temporary data over time for easy and faster functioning for the apps within it. A ‘cache’ is a reserved location where this data is stored. Cache memory provides easy access to the apps and websites, so they can run faster. The kind of data stored in the cache is generally something that gets requested a lot, like your login credentials, cookies, HTML files that describe the site, and images on the site. When this data is pre-stored in the caches, it allows the apps and websites to run faster. Over a period of time, the cache gets filled with unnecessary data and may affect the performance of your Android smartphone, at which point you need to clear the cache on your device. So, it is necessary to clear the cache of your Android mobile device.

When should you clear the cache?

The cache doesn’t need to be cleared regularly. It is quite helpful in boosting the speed of your apps.

This may also depend on the storage capacity of your smartphone. Typically, it is advised to clear the cache periodically every few months.
