Clearing Browser History and Cookies

Sometimes you will need to clear your browser history and cookies in order to resolve certain issues with the League of Legends Store or forum/website logins.

A web browser cache is a mechanism for the temporary storage (caching) of web documents, such as HTML pages and images, to reduce bandwidth usage. A web browser cache stores copies of websites passing through it in order for future requests to be loaded from the cache instead of having to be re downloaded from the web server.

A cookie is a file created by a web browser that is then stored on a computer. These files typically store user-specific information.

A browser's history is a log of sites that you visit.
