What happens when you clear cookies?
As soon as you clear cache and cookies on your device, settings on some sites get deleted. For example, if you were signed in, you’ll get logged out and need to sign in again. If you turn on the sync, you’ll stay signed in to the Google Account you’re syncing to in order to delete your data across all your devices. Some sites can seem slower because content, like images, needs to load again.
