How to clear the cache of your Android phone

While the steps above guide you through the process of clearing data from individual apps installed on your Android phone, the process can get a little stressful if you have too many apps installed or are doing it for the first time. If you want a more straightforward solution, lots of apps in the Google Play Store will help you clear the cache of your Android device seamlessly in less than five steps.

I recommend using 1Tap Cleaner because it offers a straightforward user interface with easily visible actions. Once this app is downloaded, press the Cache Clean button with a broom icon. This opens a page that shows and sorts all the apps installed on your smartphone in a descending order based on the data stored in each app. You can only select a few apps to selectively clear the cache or press the broom button at the bottom of the page to clear your Android phone’s cache completely.

Before the process begins, the 1Tap Cleaner app opens a confirmation page that shows you the amount of free storage space on your Android device and the percentage of data and cache used using a pie chart. Touch the broom icon again. On the next page, uncheck Turbo mode for deeper cleaning.

If you are doing this for the first time, you may be prompted to allow accessibility settings for the 1Tap Cleaner app. Once this is completed, the process of clearing cache from all apps starts automatically. Since Android no longer allows a single step to clear cache from all apps, 1Tap Cleaner will essentially automate the clearing of the cache for each app on your phone individually. Grab yourself a relaxing drink because the process will take a few minutes to complete. When done, you will see the cache cleared from your smartphone in megabytes (MB) or gigabytes (GB) based on the previously saved cache.
