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.

Enjoy your messaging app to the fullest! Remember that if you have a Friend Kit, you can enjoy WhatsApp and all your unlimited social networks with #LaRedDeTusEmociones.

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.

Now that you know the difference, here we explain the ways to clear the cache:


    • 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.

It will be so easy to empty the space occupied by the WhatsApp cache temporary files and you will see that the app works correctly again.

On iPhone

Unlike Android, on devices iOs it is not possible to empty the WhatsApp cache. If you enter Adjustments from the app then to Data and storage, you will see at the end the options of Data Use and Storage Use, but there is no option to Clear cache.

So if you want to free up space, the only option is Manage files sent and received chat by chat from Storage Use.
