Clear Internet Browser Memory

If you are having trouble with how items are displayed in Passport, or with accessing certain resources or tools, you may need to clear your internet browser memory or cache. If there have been recent updates to the learning environment, there may be old data stored there. Clearing your web browser’s cache means removing stored data such as website cookies, cached images and files, and hosted app data. You do not have to clear your web browsing history or saved passwords. Below are steps to clear your browser cache for different Internet browsers.

If you are still having trouble after clearing your cache, please contact Customer Support
