Have you ever tried to navigate the web on your mobile phone while traveling? I know I have, and it’s not fun having to wait for a site to load in the background just so I can get to the guts of the page I’m on. In addition to being frustrating, it’s also a pain in the ass if you’re trying to read an article or buy a product and the page keeps timing out.
You want to avoid situations like this. To make sure your experience is as fast and fluid as possible, you might want to clear the cache of the browser on your phone. Fortunately, there’s a way to do this on most mobile phones without needing to resort to custom settings. All you have to do is log into your account on Clickfunnels and head over to Settings > General. From there, you can choose to clear your cache either automatically or on a schedule.
Automatic Cache Clearing
When you signed up for Clickfunnels, you probably opted for a generous offer of free lifetime caches. These caches, also known as browser storage items or “browser cookies”, are small text files stored on your device when browsing the web. The problem is that sometimes these files aren’t cleared by the browser as often as you’d like them to be. If you decide that you don’t want to continue with Clickfunnels (or if you’ve somehow managed to crash your account), you can find your browser cache easily enough by looking in the “Application Data” section of your phone’s settings. You’ll see a list of all your apps along with a folder labeled “Caches”. Within that folder, you’ll find a number of text files, with.txt appended to the end of the name. These files contain your cache information.
You can also find.json,.bak, and other similar files in the Application Data section of your phone’s settings. You don’t have to delete them, but you can choose to ignore them if you want to keep your cache.
Clearing The Cache Automatically
If you decide that you want to keep your cache and don’t need to clear it manually, you can set Clickfunnels to clear the cache on a schedule. To do this, click on Settings > General and then scroll down to the “Data Management” section. You’ll see four choices here:
- Automatically clear the cache
- Manually clear the cache
- Clear the cache when cookies are deleted
- Clear the cache when the device is restarted
If you check the first option, Clickfunnels will clear the cache of your browsing history and cookies when it clears the browser storage items of its own. That way, you won’t have to worry about your cache being out of date when you return to a site you’ve been to before. However, if you clear the cache manually or on a schedule, you’re in control of when it happens and can assure yourself that you’ll always have the freshest cache available for all your favorite websites.
Manual Cache Clearing
If you decide that you do need to clear the cache manually, you can click on Settings > General and then scroll down to the “Data Management” section. Here you can choose to clear the cache of all websites you visit or just the ones you feel are holding you back. To do this, simply click the “Manual” option under “Automatically clear the cache” and then click “Clear” beneath it. This will bring you to a screen where you can choose the specific caches you want to remove. Then, you can click “Clear” again to confirm your choice.
Now, when you clear the cache of your browsing history and cookies, you’re going to lose all the temporary data from those sites. However, if you know that you’re going to be clearing the cache frequently (which you probably will be, since it’s usually a good idea to clear your browser cookies and cache whenever you log in to a new device or computer), you can make the necessary adjustments so that you don’t lose your log-in information when clearing the cache. To do this, go to Settings and then scroll down to the “Security” section. Here you can find a way to save your log-in information in case you lose your password. You can also find instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication (2FA) if you’re worried about cybercrime. With 2FA enabled, you’ll need to enter a code along with your password in order to log in to Clickfunnels. This makes it much harder for anyone to steal your log-in information. Not to mention that 2FA adds an extra layer of security by requiring you to verify your identity when logging in.
Why Should You Clear Your Browser Cache?
Have you ever had trouble logging into a website on a mobile phone while traveling? I know I have, especially when I’m in an area where my home network isn’t available. This is when I turn to my cache. When I visit a site with an SSL certificate (the “Secure Sockets Layer” used to protect data transmissions across the web), I can usually access the content I need without any problems. However, if the site isn’t configured to use certificates, then I’m forced to wait for it to load in the background. While I’m waiting, my cache keeps filling up with the content, which I can then access when the network is available again. If I don’t clean it out, then all that content ends up taking up a ton of space in my phone’s cache. Eventually, this could cause performance problems or even crash the browser.
If possible, I always suggest that users clear their caches when using this type of VPN service. Not only does it ensure that they’re always up-to-date when logged into a website, but it also prevents issues when using public Wi-Fi. Since most of these services do their job by hiding your IP address, it’s often difficult to trace the content you’re accessing if you do something suspicious. However, if you keep your cache on the device and don’t clear it, all the websites you visit could be tracked by the authorities. Not to mention that anything you do online could be recorded and stored for future reference. These are serious issues that could arise if you don’t take the right steps to ensure your anonymity.
What Should You Do To Keep Your Caches?
If you decide that you want to keep your cache and don’t want to delete it manually, you can click on Settings > General and then scroll down to the “Data Management” section. Here you can find a way to monitor how much space your cache is taking up. You can also choose to clear the cache when certain actions are performed (such as logging into a new device or computer) or when it rains (to make sure your phone doesn’t get wet and damaged while in transit).
If you want to keep your cache and don’t want to delete it individually, you can either choose to ignore the notifications or set them to “Do Not Disturb”. This way, you’ll never know when your cache is getting filled up. Once it hits a certain limit, then you’ll begin to receive notifications asking if you want to clear it. If you decide to keep ignoring these notifications or set them to “Do Not Disturb”, it’s best practice to log out of Clickfunnels whenever you’re not using it. As long as your phone is on and connected to the Internet when you log into Clickfunnels, it will keep loading the cache. If you decide to keep using the service and don’t want to clear your cache on a schedule, then it’s recommended that you delete it manually once a month.
