Free up Space on Your Android: Clear App Cache and Storage

Learn how to Clear App Cache and Storage on your Android device in just a few easy steps. Keep your phone running smoothly.

When an Android application stops responding, the first step is to force-stop it to restart it. But when the problems persist, you should try to clear the cache. This process helps get rid of your application’s short-term memory. The cache allows you to store data, so you don’t have to download it each time you open the application. And it is often the source of the bugs that cause it to crash!

How To Clear App Cache and Storage

For that :

  1. Go to the Settings  of your Android smartphone
  2. Then go to Applications and notifications (or Applications ⇒ All apps depending on the version of Android)
  3. Choose the problem Android app
  4. Head to the Storage option (or Storage space and cache, depending on the performance of Android)
  5. Click Clear Cache and Clear Storage 

Important: clearing the cache does not delete certain data, such as identifiers or game saves. It is the first step before clearing the storage, which deletes all app data here.

  • Finally, open the application and check that everything is back to normal!

Over time, an app’s cache quickly becomes cluttered and cluttered. It can generate errors that slow its operation or even cause a bug preventing you from using it.

We recommend removing your application’s storage if you need more than clearing the cache to solve your worries. This manoeuvre gets rid of all the settings and data associated with the application. If you delete data from a social network like Facebook or Instagram, you must log in again. The application behaves exactly like you had just installed it the first time.
