The Benefits of a Clear Cache
Marie Kondo may have helped us get an early jump on spring cleaning this year, but this means more opportunities to clean out our lives during the fresh spring season. This extends to our digital lives as well as a clear cache offers many benefits to our internet experience.
Although we can’t dig through our internet cache searching for what “sparks joy” in our lives, deleting the information stored here enables fast access to the digitized information we love. As a result, we can allow storage for temporary data, further stimulating faster access, load times, and a swift, efficient experience for users.
The team from GOA-TECH wants to share our favorite benefits for extending spring cleaning to our PCs, Macs, and mobile devices. Enjoy the benefits of a clear cache right…. NOW!
“An Ounce of Performance is Worth Pounds of Promises”
A cluttered cache can slow down your system and application performance. This is largely due to the RAM and memory it demands. Unfortunately, this is often a result of throwaway information you won’t require in the future.
Your cache’s primary purpose is improving system performance by reducing data processing and fetching. With a large cache, you hinder the overall speed and performance of your machine.
While all of us remain excited to spend some time outdoors with our friends, loved ones, and even our pets, our modern lives may require playing fetch with a favorite web page, instead of the family dog.
When a cache stores data, the web pages we often browse loads from stored instance information. This leads to webpages not reflecting newer changes due to cache storage. Developers commonly insist on clearing out cache memory to observe the latest and greatest concerning page implementations.
A clear cache signals our web browser to fetch the latest version of a web page. As a result, you might gain that much needed time outside you can spend playing actual fetch with a beloved retriever or terrier.
Nobody Needs to Know Your Business
Caches also commonly store private website data. This could include sensitive information like login credentials, and even message or mobile phone information. When utilizing a computer on a public connection, any opportunistic individual could gain access to your personal information.
We’ve all done it, logging into a social media platform at the local Starbucks without logging out at the end of a session. Unfortunately, this means someone accessing a device on the same connection can gain access to your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and raise a privacy threat.
