Android, Tutorials

In this tutorial, we will learn how to clean the hidden cache on Android devices. Over time, our Android devices accumulate temporary files and data that can take up valuable storage space.

These hidden cache files can slow down our device’s performance and cause various issues. By regularly cleaning the hidden cache, we can optimize our device’s performance and free up storage space.

Step 1: Accessing the Settings

To clean the hidden cache on your Android device, start by accessing the Settings menu. You can usually find the Settings app on your home screen or in the app drawer. Once you’ve located it, tap on it to open.

Step 2: Navigating to Storage

Within the Settings menu, scroll down until you find an option called “Storage” or “Storage & USB”. Tap on this option to access the storage settings of your device.

Step 3: Clearing Cached Data

In the Storage menu, you will see a breakdown of different types of data stored on your device. Look for an option labeled “Cached data” or “Cache”. Tap on this option to proceed.

Note: Clearing the cached data will not delete any personal files or settings from your device. It will only remove temporary files and data that are not necessary for your device’s smooth operation.

Step 4: Confirming Cache Clearing

A confirmation dialog box will appear, asking if you want to clear cached data. Tap on “OK” or “Clear” to confirm and initiate the cache clearing process.


  • Regularly clearing the cache is recommended to keep your Android device running smoothly.
  • If you notice any performance issues or app crashes, clearing the cache can often resolve these problems.
  • In some cases, you may find an option to clear cache for specific apps. This can be useful if a particular app is causing issues.
  • Clearing the cache may cause certain apps to load slightly slower the first time you open them, as the cached data will need to be rebuilt.

Congratulations! You have successfully cleaned the hidden cache on your Android device. By regularly performing this simple maintenance task, you can ensure optimal performance and free up valuable storage space on your device.
