Sometime when an app is acting up you may need to clear that application's cache. This will cause the app to re-request the data and recreate the cache again. If the app cache was in a bad state this could solve it.
Sometimes you want to put the application back into its original clean state. Like before you launched and customized it. This can be accomplished with clearing application data. In almost all cases this will remove the data in the app. All login info will be gone and all settings in the app are reset to default.
For example if you clear data for Messaging app, it will delete all your messages and settings in that app.
Another example: Clearing data for Email app will delete your email account from the app, remove all emails from the app and also remove every setting you have customized.
But clearing application data for Gallery app will not remove the photos but clear up any settings in Gallery app.
How to clear app cache/data?
I hope this helps

I think you are talking about cleaning browser cache.
In your mobile browser you go to settings, privacy, clear browsing data. This will clear cache for your browser.

I usually use Android data cleaner tool to clear cache files for an app. It's easy to use. All types of junk files can be detected and removed, including app caches, download temp files, app crash logs, photo caches and many more.
