But, what is a cache? Isnâ€™t it like a cookie?
Yes and Noâ€¦. The 50/50 answer is because not all sites or browsers will allow cache, which will be a little difficult to deal with. Cache is a snapshot, for example, when you go on vacation and you take lots of photos, you are taking one cache at a time for a memory look up later. This can also be cleared by the browser and the steps also vary by browser and system.
But what about my security software, can this cause issues?
Yes, this is very possible. Not all security software is made equal and will cause different issues for different users. For example: You go to use your card that has a chip, which is a new way of protecting who you are, and provides a unique code each time it is used. Companies try everything, everyday to monitor and keep you protected, but there is that .01% that something goes wrong and your information is in the wrong hands. While having a security program keeping you safe on your computer, you still need to practice safe surfing online, in which I will be posting about that soon!
