View Cache and Clear Site Storage from Brave browser on the Computer

Do you want to view each site's cache and occupied storage in the Brave app? Learn how to check site-specific data.

Every website we visit downloads and stores the files for quick access on successive visits. It is known as browser caching and helps quickly load the site. This caching can become large and obsolete over the period.

The Brave browser allows viewing the cache size and clearing the file storage if required for every visited site.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to view and clear the cache storage from the Brave browser.

Bottom Line

Clearing cached data can help solve issues you sometimes face when browsing a website, like Error 404, the site not loading correctly, etc. Or you can view cache and storage space to understand better which website has stored what data.

The browser cache saves elements from websites you visit in local storage. But the cache must be cleared regularly. Browsing the internet leads to accumulating a lot of cached data that can affect the performance of your device.

Apart from the cache, the Brave browser also offers the option to clear other site storage and history.
