Very useful info - thanks. I do go to the settings in chrome "see all site data and permissions" and search for wetransfer and delete all that data. Do you think I should delete all of my cache and site data? I've been using Chrome for wetransfer lately and it's fine as long as I don't get logged out and have to log back in. ON my internet computer I make Macrium image files, so if I did get some malware or get hacked, I'd revert to a previous image file.

I've used computers daily for 30 years and am pretty careful to avoid the pitfalls. To my knowledge, I've never been hacked or gotten malware. I get an AVG scan every night and backup all 3 computers to a HD, which then gets backed up to the cloud. I'm a Murphy's Law kind of guy. . So given all this I do like the convenience of Chrome saving passwords and user ID's and I use Roboform Password manager to save tons of passwords and User ID's.

I log in to my bank account every day to monitor the activity and I use my debit card all the time online and every once in a while I need to get a new credit card when I find fraud on it. So I'm not afraid of that since I know how to handle it and accepted this inconvenience. I'm very wary of all the phone and email scams we're all bombarded with, so far I've been fortunate.

I just deleted my Chrome cache. I didn't delete site data and cookies. I rebooted Chrome, logged out of wetransfer and surprisingly logged in easily. So I think you nailed it. You said keeping the cache a long time will cause problems. In the past I always deleted specific site data like wetransfer. I still have my saved passwords and log in info saved, so that's what i like. I have 11 tabs open on Chrome, Task Manager memory used is 53%. So it seems it's not a RAM issue, but the cache. What does the cache do? Is it primarily for having sites load quicker?
