Google saves visited information in a folder called Favicons

It is probably safe, but when I look into that folder I see lots of private stuff

I think Wise Cleaner should lok into this and correct it if need be.

Thanks

The file favicons is in %localappdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default.
I.e., in %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\.
It's about 20MB (on my machine, at least).

I also noticed some doublets found by Wise Care 365 (and probably also by WDC).

Doublets:
Favicons-journal
History-journal
Network Action Predictor-journal
QuotaManager-journal
Shortcuts-journal
Top Sites-journal
Web Data-journal


This is present three times (thrice?):
Login Data-journal
