How to Clear & Delete Cache on Samsung TVs

We all know the importance of regularly clearing cache memory. Most people do it on their phones and laptops, but we often forget it to do it on our Samsung TVs as well. After all, they’re smart devices, and should be treated the same as any other device.

If you haven’t cleared your cache for a while, now’s the time to do it. In this article, we’ll explain everything you need to know.

Step by Step Guide

You don’t have to worry whether this guide will work for you or not. The process is similar for every Samsung smart TV. So grab your remote control and get ready to begin. It won’t take you more than a couple of minutes.

Note: Bear in mind that it’s not possible to clear all cache at once. As you know, cache memory is stored in every app, so you’ll have to repeat the process for all the apps you’re using.

Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Turn on your Samsung TV.
  2. Press the Home button on your remote control.
  3. Open Settings.
  4. Select Apps.
  5. Open System apps.
  6. Select the app whose cache you want to clear.
  7. Select “Clear cache”.
  8. Confirm by pressing OK.

There you have it! The cache should be deleted in a couple of minutes. If you have more apps, don’t forget to repeat the process for each and every one.

This could also be an excellent opportunity to check whether you have to update some apps. Plus, if you have apps you’re no longer using, you might want to consider deleting them.

Benefits of Clearing Cache

Everyone’s talking about the benefits of clearing cache memory, but what does it do to your smart TV (or any other device)? Here are some of the things that will happen after you delete your cache:

  1. Speed will increase. We know that cache can affect the speed and performance of your device, especially if you haven’t cleared it for a while. After you do so, your TV will operate faster. You shouldn’t expect miracles, but we’re sure you’ll notice the difference.
  2. You’re protecting your device from malware. Many viruses target cache memory, knowing that people often forget to clear it. When you do so, your device will be more protected from some viruses.
  3. Browser performance will improve. We’re not talking only about speed, although that’s the most notable change. If you had problems opening some websites, maybe it was because of things contained in your cache. That should be over now.

There are some other, less important reasons but we hope this was enough to convince you to start regularly clearing your cache.

How do I clear the app cache on a , Samsung UN65JU6700FXZA? Browser history and cookies are clear on the web browser but some of the movie apps are slow and lag bad. I have plenty of bandwidth to run the apps and only 4 devices hooked to the network.Tubi used to be my go to for harder to find movies but it just force closes 98% of the time. It is compatible with my tv . Samsung and Tubi support are useless on the issue.
