How to Clear Your Instagram Cache – How-To Geek

Here are the steps on how to clear your Instagram cache:

On Android:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap on Apps or Application Manager.
  3. Scroll down and find Instagram.
  4. Tap on Storage.

  4. Scroll down and find Instagram.
  5. Tap on Manage Storage.

Note: Clearing your Instagram cache will not delete any of your photos, videos, or messages. It will only delete the temporary files that Instagram uses to speed up your browsing experience.

Here are some of the reasons why you might want to clear your Instagram cache:

  • If you are experiencing problems with the Instagram app, such as slow loading or crashing, clearing the cache may help.
  • If you are running out of storage space on your device, clearing the cache can free up some space.
  • If you want to start fresh with Instagram, clearing the cache will delete all of your temporary data, such as your recent searches and browsing history.

By uninstalling and reinstalling the Instagram app, you effectively clear its cache. However, keep in mind that doing this will also remove any locally stored data, such as login information and preferences.
