I am using a Samsung Note 2 (N7100) running on root. I want to know where Chrome for Android saves its cache files.

Like on Windows, the cache is located on ..\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Profile 1\Cache.

Where is the location for Chrome for Android's cache?


Like other Android apps, Chrome for Android stores the cache under its data directory which is /data/data/com.android.chrome/cache. Cache and Media Cache goes there.

GPUCache is located under /data/data/com.android.chrome/app_chrome/Default/.

  • @ZéCarlos back when I posted the answer I meant what I wrote, but I do not know whether my answer is applicable to recent versions of Android now. – Firelord Jul 26 '19 at 17:06
