How to Clear Cookies and Site Data on Android – Phandroid

Every time you visit a website, the device on which you visit it, be it your phone or your computer, stores a cache of it. The site, in turn, also leaves cookies. This saves your browsing data so that the next time you visit the website, your login details are still there, along with all your preferences.

It can also save your loading times with caching.

But there are times when you visit a website and realize that the formatting is disabled and things aren’t working as they should. There are a number of reasons why this could be the case, but one of the easiest ways to try and fix this problem is to clear your cache and cookies.

While this won’t necessarily solve every problem, it’s a good place to start because it requires very little effort and isn’t very technical, making it easy for everyone to do.
