Five Simple Tricks to Free Up Space on your Smartphone

The smartphone has become a device in which users keep everything. They save images, videos, songs, and other types of personal or work information. However, if you are not careful and watch your storage, it is very easy for the device to end up with all the memory occupied by really useless things. If you want to avoid this problem, there are some steps you can take.

WhatsApp folders

One of the first things to do if your device has hit its capacity limit, and you don’t want to store useless information, is to configure your WhatsApp account so that the images and videos sent to you by your contacts are not automatically downloaded. To do this, you must open the application and go to settings. You must select “Data and storage” where you can configure that photos, videos and audios are not downloaded automatically. This way, you will decide what content you want to save on your smartphone.

What applications do you need?

Cybersecurity experts recommend, especially for privacy issues, to be very selective with the applications you download on your smartphone. Only install the essential ones. This tip helps keep your data safe and also frees up space on your device. 

Fewer SMS messages 

Since Whatsapp developed, SMS messages seem useless. However, it is common for the user to have the device full of notifications and not even notice. Deleting all of them from time to time can be an excellent way to free up space. However, keep in mind that they do not take up as much as photos and, especially, videos.


The cloud is a box with a practically infinite capacity in which all the information you want fits. If the user is afraid of deleting some files, because he does not know if he may need them at any time, it is best to use it. We are talking about iCloud, Dropbox or Google Photos. If you have a large capacity external hard drive, this may be another good option.

Clear cache & cookies

When we surf the internet, we collect a series of cookies that end up taking up too much space. That is why it is good to clear the browsing history of the smartphone regularly. In case your device is an Android, it is possible to carry out the operation from Settings. Go to Applications and clear cache. In iOS, you have to go to Settings, Safari, clear history and website data.
