How to clean or clear WhatsApp cache?

When we talk about cache we refer to space where your apps store temporary data and it is very useful when we want to free up space on our cell phone.

It is very important that you consider the difference between ‘Clear cache’ and ‘delete data’; the first one as we already mentioned is for temporary data. However, the second refers to permanently deleting all application data, accounts, files, databases and settings; as if you just installed the app.

    • Enter the System settings.
    • Choose the option Applications.
    • Search the list and select WhatsApp.
    • Go to option Storage.
    • Now you just have to press the button Empty Cache memory.
