How to Enable Cookies on iPhone
These days, everyone thinks the best way to protect your privacy is to block them. Even though it's true that a lot of companies track you with cookies they don't need to and then use this information in bad ways, not all cookies are bad. Some cookies are needed for websites to work as they should. Cookies can, for example, keep you signed in to websites, remember your preferences, like whether or not you want to receive notifications, and show you localized content that is relevant to you. Here's how to enable cookies in Safari and Chrome on an iPhone. It is extremely simple. You will also learn how to delete the cookies you have stored.
What are Cookies?
Cookies are files that a website puts on your device to store information about you. By saving information, a site can make it easier for you to browse because the file lets the site know who you are.
There are two kinds of cookies: cookies from the same site and cookies from other sites. First-party cookies come from the sites you go to. On the other hand, third-party cookies are made by sites other than your own. When you visit a website, it can create third-party cookies if it owns any content, like ads or images, on that website. We're interested in first-party cookies. You should turn them on because they can save you a lot of time.
How to Enable Cookies on Safari on iPhone
If you've turned off cookies on your iPhone before, it's easy to turn them back on.
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Scroll down and tap on Safari.
3. Turn off the "Block all cookies" switch.
Just above it, you can also choose to "Prevent Cross-Site Tracking." You can keep it turned on to block third-party cookies if you want to.
How to Delete Cookies on Safari
You might need to clear cookies from your browser if a site isn't working as it should or if you want to get rid of all the information it has stored. Even though it's best to leave them on, it doesn't hurt to clear them every now and then. If you delete the cookies, any saved information will be erased, and you will be logged out of any sites where you were signed in.
1. Open the Settings app
2. Scroll down and tap on Safari.
3. Tap the "Advanced" option.
4. Tap 'Website Data'.
5. The sites that have saved the most information will show up first. You can get rid of cookies for certain sites. Swipe the site to the left and tap "Remove."
6. Tap "Remove All Website Data" at the bottom to get rid of all cookies.
Only cookies are deleted when you use the method above. If you also want to delete your browsing history, there is a faster way to delete cookies and history at the same time.
How to Enable Cookies in Chrome on an iPhone
If you browse the internet on your iPhone with the Chrome browser, you don't have to worry about cookies. Chrome automatically turns on cookies and keeps them on, so you don't have to worry about that. In fact, you can't turn off first-party cookies at all because there's no way to do so.
You can use the Incognito mode if you ever don't want the browser to save cookies. When you use Incognito mode, the browser doesn't save any cookies or site data.
You can, however, turn off third-party cookies if you want to. Here's how to deal with Chrome and Firefox cookies:
Chrome: Go to Settings on your iPhone and then choose Chrome. From there, make sure that "Allow Cross-Website Tracking" is turned off.
Firefox: Go to Settings on your iPhone and then choose Firefox. From there, make sure that "Allow Cross-Website Tracking" is turned off.
How to Delete Cookies from an iPhone using Google Chrome
If you think that cookies are making your browser run slower, you can get rid of them. But if you delete the cookies, you will be signed out of websites and your saved preferences will be gone.
1. Tap the "Profile" icon in the top right corner of the Chrome browser then tap on Settings.
You can also tap the three dots in the bottom-right corner of the screen and choose "Settings" from the menu.
2. Tap on "Privacy."
3. Tap "Clear Browsing Data" from the menu.
4. If you only want to delete cookies, only check the box for "Cookies, Site Data" and uncheck all the other boxes.
5. Then, at the bottom of the screen, tap "Clear Browsing Data."
6. There will be a confirmation message. To make sure, tap "Clear Browsing Data."
No matter what people who care about privacy tell you, turning off cookies isn't the best way to use the internet. If you don't want a smooth experience, do what you want. But for most of us, it's best to keep cookies turned on.
