How to clear cache for a single website

When a visitor to your website opens a passcode, secret link, newsletter, or location key, Locksmith remembers the access via browser cache. Once the lock is open, the locked content will be accessible and will begin to appear in searches and collection view (if applicable). Locksmith will remember this access for the duration of the browser session.

If you want to re-test what a new user would see: make sure you are signed out, and then you will need to use a browser with clean cache. This can be done by using a different browser than the one that you normally use, or clear the browser cache. You can shut down your browser program completely, or use the following steps.
