Your login information is stored in a cookie file on your browser. If you want to stay logged in after cleaning, you need to deselect the "Delete cookies" option in the Click&Clean settings or add login cookies to the "Cookies to keep" list on the Cookie Wiper page.

The "Quick Access Menu" allows you to quickly browse the current site in the Private mode, manage the amount of your browsing history, clear history and close all tabs for a specific website with just 1-click! You can enable this menu in the "Extra" section of the Click&Clean settings. To open the "Quick Access Menu," simply click the gray Click&Clean icon that appears at the bottom left of the screen. This is experimental feature and your comments or suggestion are welcome!

10. Does Click&Clean Slow Down My PC's Performance?

The extension is always in inactive mode while you're not using it. This means that Click&Clean uses zero amount of memory and CPU. You can easily check it in your browser by clicking the "Chrome menu (three vertical dots)" → "More tools" → "Task Manager".

The extension code is highly optimized and minified by using Closure Compiler by Google™. The entire package is less than 700-800 KB in size. By comparison, other extensions usually use a few or tens of megabytes.

11. Why am I Receiving Too Many Notifications?

Click&Clean settings and notifications state are stored in a local storage - a special file or set of files where applications can store data locally. It may happen that the settings cannot be recorded due to local storage corruption and extension may not work properly.

To solve local storage corruption, we suggest you reinstall the extension. Right-click on the Click&Clean icon and select "Remove from Chrome" and then install the extension again from the Chrome Web Store or Microsoft Edge Addons gallery.
