How to delete junk files on Android

Hi friends, having low storage on your phone is one of the problems that many users face daily. The system constantly asks you to free up space to save photos, download apps, or even take screenshots. That’s why in this post we will show you how to delete junk files on Android and free up a large amount of memory. This process can be done from your phone’s file manager, but it is much faster and more efficient using one of Google’s best apps. Junk files are those that have no use for the operation of your device. You can also call junk files those images that you have not used for years and that the system determines that you do not need. The best example is screenshots.

A phone that has been in use for months and has never had a junk file cleanup can accumulate hundreds of megabytes of these files, which only take up space in your memory and worsen your user experience.

First step
