You can’t touch the folder itself, but all its contents need to be cleaned sometimes. Very large amounts of data can be accumulated there, ever installed and deleted programs and applications that are subsequently not used in any way, but only occupy a useful disk space. If something in this folder does not want to be deleted is not scary, it means that this file is busy with the process, leave it, and delete the rest.
