How to Clear App Cache and Cookies Updating Apps And Clearing Unused Apps on Samsung Smart TV

Clearing your app cache and data regularly is always a good practice not just on your samsung TV but on every device you own.



We are used to deleting cache and cookies in the computer’s browser or clearing them in our phones and tablets but often we forget to do the same on our smart TVs.


The benefits of clearing your device’s app cache and browsing data include increased speed and performance as well as protection from harmful malware that you might have come across while browsing plus any lags or app problems .


While doing this, it might be a good time to evaluate what apps are installed on your smart TV.


You will be surprised at the number of apps that you are not actually using.

It’s a good tome that you delete them to save up some precious storage space.


Aso I will mention how to delete your app data specifically on a TV app 


First off 


How to Delete App Cache Data on your Samsung Smart TV


Clearing app data on a smart TV device is similar to doing it in your mobile, Tablet ,pc 


You will need to repeat the process in every app installed in your device.


(bit time consuming but can help a lot with apps that are not working as they should do etc .)


Here’s how to do it:


Tap the Home button on your Samsung smart TV’s remote control.


Go to Settings.

Select Apps.

Go to the System apps.


Choose the app you want to clear the cache with.


Tap on “Clear cache”.

Tap OK to confirm.

The cache on that particular app will instantly be cleared.


However as said above if you haven’t done this in a while.


(Has any one thought about doing this or has done it if so would like to know if it helps?).



How to Clear Cookies and Browsing Data on Samsung Smart TV.

On the Broadcasting menu, choose Expert Settings.

Select the HbbTV Settings.

Tap on Delete Browsing Data.

Confirm by tapping Yes.


That is all you have to do to rid your Samsung TV of those dreaded app caches and browsing data


It will not take much of your time and you certainly won’t regret doing it.


Anyway you peeps might have already tried this and had no luck be good to hear from you if you have and had no luck or if your TV and apps have got better
