How to Clear Your Browser Cache

When an update is made to your website (on our end, or even on yours), and you do not see anything new, you may need to clear your browser cache to see the changes.

When using a desktop or laptop, this can be done by bringing up the site of your choice in your browser, then once it is loaded proceeding to then hold the SHIFT key and either pressing the reload/refresh button of your browser, or pressing the F5 key on your keyboard once.

On a mobile device however, it’s a bit different depending on which browser you are using (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.). For example, in Chrome you need to go to Menu > Settings > Privacy > Clear Browsing Data and make sure that “Cached Images and FIles” is selected. Alternately, a quick workaround is to open up a tab in Incognito Mode and check out your website from there (as your browser starts off fresh and doesn’t store any data in the cache when using Incognito Mode).

Here is an informative link to on how to clear your cache on the different browsers.

If you have any questions on clearing your cache for your specific device/browser, or a recent update to your website, contact us today.
