Customer Question

re Website data on ipad. Is the size in KB shown on the list of sites related to the sites, or to how often you visit / engage with the sites? Google shows up as huge on my list.

Can you clarify what you are referring to?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

From settings, I went to Safari, Advanced then Website data.


Websites are listed in order of decreasing KB.

What determines the KB size? Is it about the website, or does it reflect the traffic from my computer to the website?

Expert:  Mike replied 4 years ago.
No the website

Wow, the google sites take 10 times the KB of anything else.


So what does the KB number represent, please? Is it an amount cached on my computer from / by websites that are visited?

Expert:  Mike replied 4 years ago.
It is the file size of all the graphics, copy , video, etc... on that page. What are you trying to accomplish?
