Use of CCleaner
 
I use the freeware version of CCleaner (Clean & speed up your slow PC | CCleaner Official Website) weekly.

It removes everything that is in the cache as well as tracking cookies (good security).

It also remove passwords which are stored in your cache, For me these are for NT, a couple of newspapers and the BBC. Make sure that all such password- sensitive sites "know" what your passwords are when logging in again after running CCleaner. This has never been a problem for me on any of those sites.

Been using it for years and just installed the updated faster cleaner version.. Good in my tech books.

You can set some browsers or add extensions to clear cookies & cache on close or after x days..
Not sure how Apple Safari browser settings work, never tried it, but a web search should be able to help if that is your set up....

Chrome browser is by Google - so some say a bit less privacy in the settings & options..

My favorite has been Firefox for many years.
Internet for people, not profit
— Mozilla


I use a Linux operating system now since Win XP expired.
Mint Mate has been my fav for years and I tried/tested many Linux distros..
Linux lite, Zorin & PCLinuxOS are runner ups..
Linux systems don't need added security or cleaning programs..like Windows systems.. that is very nice..
