We've also included instructions on how to clear data for a single site if you need to. The most popular browsers are Chrome, Safari, and Edge.

Chrome browser

Click the three dots in the top right corner on the desktop version, then select More tools and then Clear browsing data.

As for the mobile app:

  • Select Settings, then Privacy and Security, and then Clear browsing data.
  • Make sure the Cached images and files box is checked, and you can also choose to clear your browsing history and cookies if you wish. You can click on the Advanced tab if you want to get more specific.
  • Use the Time range drop-down menu to choose the length of time that works for you, and in the case of clearing the cache, it is best to clear all data regardless of the length of time.
  • Click on the Clear Data button.

To clear data for a specific website

  • Click on the three dots at the top right, then select Settings, then Privacy and Security, then Cookies and other site data.
  • Scroll down and click View all cookies and site data.
  • Find the website name in the upper right corner and select the trash can icon on the left.

Safari browser

Interestingly, Safari makes it very easy to clear all your data - including cache, browsing history, and cookies - in one fell swoop. But this is not obvious if you just want to clear the browser cache.

To do it the easy way:

  • While using Safari on the desktop, go to the top menu and select Safari > Clear History and select the time period (last hour, today, today and yesterday, all history) you want to clear, and then click Clear History.
  • And on your iPhone, tap the Bookmarks icon at the bottom of the screen (it looks like an open book) and then the History icon (the clock), hit the Clear button and select your time period.
  • If you want to clear the browser cache on a web browser, it's a bit more complicated. Look to see if there is a "Develop" section in the top menu of Safari. If not, go to Safari > Preferences and from there click on Advanced options and check Show update in menu bar, then click on Update and then Empty caches.

To clear data for a specific website

Click on Safari > Preferences and then click on the Privacy tab > Manage Website Data, where you will get a list of websites.
To remove one, click on it and then click Remove. To remove all website data from Safari, click Remove All.
