For answers to frequently asked questions about Cache, please see below.

What is cache?
It is a means of helping to improve how fast data is opened while browsing the internet. In most cases, each time a web page is opened, the content is sent to your temporary internet files. The next time you visit a page that you have previously opened, it will open from the cache rather than downloading the content on the page again.

How does cache affect my session on walgreens.com?
By using cache to open the site, you are not getting the most current version of the site. Normally, this would be fine, but we frequently do updates to our site. So, if updates were made to the site, you will not see the changes because you don't have the most current version of the page. You will not be able to see the changes without clearing the cache on your computer.

How can I clear the cache on my computer?
