What is my “cache”?
Your cache stores temporary files that your browser downloads from the internet to speed up the loading of pages and sites you’ve already visited. Clearing your cache and deleting your cookies will erase your settings from websites you visit regularly. Some effects of clearing your cache are:
- Websites may load a little slower on the first visit afterward since content and images have to be reloaded
- If you’ve opted for certain websites to remember your login credentials (usernames and/or passwords), these will be cleared from your browser’s memory. You will have to retype your login information and sign in again to access your account(s).
