Delete all cached file after uninstall Android app


When running app, app will create a lot of cached files. If user uninstall app, I think that these files need to be removed. I suggest a solution for this issue:

  • Write cached file to External Cached Directory
  • If the user uninstalls your application, these files will be automatically deleted.


How to implement

You can also access a cache directory on a secondary external storage (if available) by calling ContextCompat.getExternalCacheDirs()
