How to Clear Cookies on Android

Cookies are the small text files that are placed by websites visited by you on your device browsers. By using cookies, the browser can remember you when visited next time. The cookies make your online experience easier by saving your browsing data and loading your previously visited web-pages faster. Cookies files keep the information, including your name, location, email address, browsing web pages data, site visited and more.

Many times the cookies send your saved information such as phone number and email to third-party advertisers. These advertisers can make a phone call and/or send promotional emails, motivating you to buy their products or services.

Why are Cookies useful?

Suppose you have several numbers of user names and passwords and sometimes forget to remember all of them. Don't worry about it; cookies play an important role in storing all this information for you.
