It's merely information from a website that is saved by the internet provider (ISP) to automatically bring up certain data, or similar data, that you have used in the past. It adapts to the preferences that you have used so that you can access them more quickly in the future. However, if you have many cookies in your cache, it will slow down your Galaxy's web browsing, too.
- 1To clear all of your cookie data on your browser:
- From the home screen, open the browser.
- Tap the "Menu" key to view all selection options.
- Scroll and find "Settings".
- Tap "Privacy & Security".
- Now select "Clear Cookies".
- Tap "OK".
- Now you are ready to exit. By clearing all temporary files, such as a list of websites and cookies, your navigation around the internet should be more efficient. #This should be done periodically when you have a long list of items in your cache. To go back to a web page after the clearing, just press the "Return" key; press the "Home" key for standby.
