    Hi @Jacob Hu

    It looks like cache and cookies are stored "in the user data folder. By default the user data folder is distinct for each host executable but you can change the user data folder. You can read more about managing user data folders in the WebView2 documentation." (answer by David Risney)

    Cited from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/66438776/where-does-webview2-store-cookies-on-win-10

    Read more about managing User Data Folders:
