Google Chrome, Firefox, and Samsung Internet are among the internet browsers available on our Android phones. Every time you surf the web, they all collect and store data. As a result, this information becomes your cookies and cache, allowing your Android phone to log in to your accounts and load frequently visited sites more quickly. This data eventually accumulates, taking up space on your device and most likely including cookies that track your browsing history in order to serve personalised advertising. You should delete this data to keep your web browser running smoothly. Today, I’ll show you how to delete Android Phone Browser Cookies & Cache to get rid of junk files.
