If you have a Samsung Galaxy and it doesn’t have enough storage space or it starts to behave strangely, then you should clear your smartphone’s cache.

You have two options to clear the cache at Samsung

The cache is full of temporary data used by apps. The cache helps apps run faster and has an overview of the information the apps need to perform tasks.

But over time, the cache can get quite large. Then it robs you of storage space. And if an app spins, it could be due to corrupted data in the cache.

You then have two options: With a single tap you can clear the entire cache on your Samsung Galaxy (this is useful if you want to reclaim storage space), or you can clear the cache of specific apps (which is good if you have one) App that goes crazy, wants to fix bugs).

Neither of the two options delete important data when the cache is cleared. It is just a temporary work file.

Here’s how to clear your cache:

  1. Opens “Settings”.
  2. Presses “Device maintenance”.
  3. There you can then press “Storage”.

Under device maintenance you can manage the battery, memory, RAM and security of your smartphone on a Samsung Galaxy.

But be careful that you don’t get “delete data”. Otherwise you would delete the data of the app. This would basically restore you to the state the app was in when you first downloaded it to your Samsung. This means that you could lose personal information.
