Ever since I updated Device Care on my Samsung Galaxy A10s running Android Pie, I lost my "Clear Space" option that clears unnecessary data, including cache of all apps including system apps on my phone!
Since, I'm not installing any third party apps, for this purpose, I decided to manually "clear cache" of any desired apps from Settings > Apps >
App name and tapping
Clear Cache. To my surprise, I found the Gallery app has about half a GB of cache, and I immediately cleared it.
I realize that apps cache stuff to improve performance, predict data to auto fill on text boxes, and various other stuff, to improve user experience. But that's taking up a lot of my Internal memory!
My question is :
Is this a safe practice?
Will this procedure damage the executable or normal functioning of my app?
Or, whether all these are dependent on the App developer / manufacturer ?
For default apps like Gallery or Chrome is this a safe practice?
