Clear Cache and Cookies

Cache indicates some static files websites stores on our computer so that next time you visit those sites, they can load faster than the initial time. Cookies are similar, but they are unique to each user.

Sometimes, these data creates the problem because they make our computer act in a predefined manner. So, how can you clear them?

You need to go through a series of steps. But if you install dedicated cleaning software, it will clean all the browsing data on every browser with a single click. My recommendation is CCleaner.

Using CCleaner, not only do you clear cookies and cache, but you can also delete temporary files and history. You can watch the video below to get some idea about how you can clear browser cache and cookies using Ccleaner.

Try a VPN

A Virtual Private Network aka VPN can come to your rescue sometimes. All you have to do is installing one, change the country, get back to your browser, and then surf YouTube.

A lot of VPNs are available out there for free. You can try them out. And, if you have the budget then you won’t regret buying a paid VPN as well.
