Why Should I Clear My Cache?

Learn how a backlogged cache can affect your browser's performance.

"Caching" is the process of temporarily storing website data in the background. Visiting a website often on the same browser will continue to log data with each visit. If your cache becomes too full of data, it can cause your browser to run slower and instigate a variety of issues.

Some of these issues include:

  • A login loop, where you are unable to log in to a website even though your credentials are correct
  • Incorrect data appearing on the page or data not appearing at all
  • Refreshing the page to update information does not reflect the updated changes
