What is a Cache?

A cache holds information about all of the different websites and pages you’ve visited, so your computer doesn’t have as much to download each time you go back. Have you ever noticed that the first time you load a website it may take a little longer than subsequent visits? This is because some of the website’s data is stored in a cache on your computer. This may include your sign-in information and other personal details. For this reason, it’s important that you clear your cache regularly to protect your privacy.
