deleting cookies

Recommended Posts

I have a Mac and when I try and delete cookies, often times, they just pop back up after I delete them... in other words, I can't seem to delete some of them. 

 

Is there an easy way to delete them w/o deleting all?

Each browser manages its own cookies and the instructions are specific to each.

I'm hoping you actually mean "How do I know which browser I'm using?".

 

The icon (little picture) you click on to start the browser should indicate which program you're using.

The 4 icons below are for: Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox.

 

There are a few more less popular browsers that I haven't included.

Let us know which one you're using.

I use Brave and Chrome browsers and they have separate cookie storage so I have to delete in both places to remove all copies of a (or all) cookie.  But Chrome does not use Brave cookies and vice versa.

 

Cookies are very convenient and I only delete specific cookies when I want to reset the number of free articles from the online news sites that put restrictions on how many you can read without subscribing.

 

For Chrome, go to this link: chrome://settings/siteData.  That page is a convenient way to see what Chrome cookies are stored on your computer.  You can search for specific cookies and then delete them individually or all at once.

Thanks 00 but could not click there - even tried www. in front and got nowhere... good luck with your move to HD... 

 

I have been deleting cookies individually so as to save the ones I use and need, but some don't delete - they just come right back seconds later...

Heh.... I didn't try that link, I just copied and pasted from my bookmarks bar.  That "link" does work if you select, copy and then paste into the chrome address bar.  I thought it was a clickable link, but I guess not.

Open Safari App > Click "Safari" > Click "Preferences" > Click "Privacy" > Click "Manage Website Data" > Click "Remove all website data" or Search for the specific website you want to remove, and remove that.
