Need To Clear Cache? Here’s How!

Sometimes, you’ll be asked to clear your cache when you encounter issues on platforms such as the MLS. It’s highly recommended that you do this every so often so that you can get the latest versions of websites and web apps. Think of it as “restarting your computer”, every now and then you need to do it to make sure everything stays current.

PLEASE NOTE: Clearing cache and cookies will log you out of websites and web apps you’re currently logged into. Please make sure you have your passwords somewhere safe.

Clearing cache and cookies is the same thing as deleting your history. Please make sure you have any important pages bookmarked.
