Clear Cache - Mobile Devices

Clearing your browser cache (aka temporary internet files) will clear out leftover junk associated with normal use.  It is a good thing to try if a website is suddenly not working properly.  Please realize that restarting your device (full power off) once a week will also help with general usage problems. 

If you needed instructions for a computer's internet browser instead, go here.

  • Choose Safari from the menu on the left (this may be at the very bottom, and you may need to scroll to see it).
