    Does your android Phone work slowly? It might be due to the large amount of cache files that get stored on the phone due to internet browsing. These files hamper a phone's performance and make it slow down to a level that gets frustrating. However, you can return your phone back to its speed king status if you keep cleaning cache from your device's storage. It will save space and boost speed as well. But do note that clearing your cache will sign you out of sites you're currently logged into and you may even have to log in afresh into them. So make sure you have the passwords saved elsewhere. Here's how you can clean the phone's cache and boost its performance.

    How to clear your Phone cache from Chrome

    Since we use Chrome for almost all the information or watching movies or downloading files, it can lead to a massive build of cached files. All you have to do is go to Chrome settings and delete the same by following THESE steps.

    Step 1. Open the Chrome app.

    Step 2. Select the three dots menu available in the bottom right.

    Step 3. Scroll down and tap on Settings.

    Step 4. Select Privacy in the next menu and then head to Clear Browsing Data.

    Step 5. Select the intended time range that you want to delete cache or cookies at the top of the menu.

    Step 6. Make sure that Cookies, Site Data is selected, along with Cached Images and Files.

    Step 7. Now, hit Clear Browsing Data at the bottom of the screen and it's done.

    Apart from this you can also clear app cache from the phone's settings by going to apps and clear cache for every app manually. Do note that it will also erase all the data like image, files or documents received via those apps.
