It’s a good idea to clear the Google Chrome cache regularly. The Chrome cache pre-stores files like images and web pages on your hard drive for faster access if you visit the same pages or pages with similar components. Having this data on their hard drive can be a privacy concern for some people.

What are Cookies and Cache

cookie is a file created by a web browser, at the request of a website, that is stored on your computer. These files store information, such as shopping cart contents or authentication data.

cache stores data from the website (such as text or images) so that the web page will load faster if you access them again.

Your browser tends to save these files. Even if they are relatively small in size, they will accumulate over time. It could cause performance issues on your browser.

Why You Need to Delete Cookies and Cache in Chrome

When you visit a website, it may save (or remember) some information. Cookies keep a user’s browsing data (with their permission), and cache helps webpages load faster by remembering images, videos, and other parts of the webpage from the previous visit rather than re-render everything with each visit.

All of this information is deleted when you clear your cache and cookies. That means any passwords you’ve previously entered on a website will need to be re-entered, and the load time of previously visited sites will increase because the content of the webpage will need to be loaded again.
