But sometimes these catches and cookies can make you compromise your device on privacy since a lot of websites store the data without your permission. As per the study by Cisco, about 84% of people demand more control over privacy, rather than granting access to some random websites on the internet. These unwanted cookies and cache can make your system slow, leading to a very unhappy browsing time. So it is important to clear cache and cookies in Google Chrome, occasionally to have a good working experience. When you are clearing the cache and cookies in Chrome, all the data stored will be lost including passwords and saved pages. But this also clears cookies and caches that can, in turn, help you have a speedy browser that loads information in a fraction of a second.
