When you clear your cache and cookies, all of this information gets deleted. That means that it will log you out on any websites you’re currently logged into, and the load time of previously visited sites will increase because it needs to load the content of the webpage again.

Alternatively, you can also press CTRL+Shift+Delete on your keyboard for Windows Users, and Command+Shift+Delete for Mac Users.
