If you have not been living under a rock you have probably heard of TikTok. This app has become a big part of my business (creating gaming videos). It also is something that I like using to create funny videos to share with others. Yep, this old man uses this app that was made for you young ‘uns. When using TikTok, you create videos (drafts) to share online with your Fans, Family, and Friends. As with any app, you will use up memory on your device when using it. It is important to clear the cache every so often to free up the memory that was used with the app. Since this is something we should all know how to do, especially if you are using the app, I want to show you how you can clear the cache easily.

You can use this area to clear up more space on your device by clearing the downloads but I will let you decide on that.
