Manage Your Cookies

A Simple Guide to Managing Your Cookies

Managing cookies might sound techy, but it’s actually pretty straightforward. Here’s a simple guide to help you control your online cookie jar, keeping your browsing experience just how you like it.

What Are Cookies Again?

Quick recap: cookies are tiny text files websites put on your device to remember your preferences. They make your online visits smoother and more personalised.

Why Manage Cookies?
While cookies are great for a tailored web experience, you might want to manage them for privacy reasons or to clear out those you no longer need. Here’s how you can do it:

Check Your Browser Settings
Every web browser (like Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Edge) has settings for managing cookies. Here’s the general idea:

Find the Settings or Options menu in your browser.

Look for the Privacy or Security section. That’s where you’ll usually find cookie settings.

Choose how you want to handle cookies. You can delete them, refuse them except for certain sites, or block them altogether.

Clearing Cookies
Want to start fresh? Clearing your cookies can do just that. Remember, this will log you out of most websites and might reset some of your preferences.

Go to your browser’s Privacy or Security settings.
Find the option to clear browsing data or history. Make sure to select ‘cookies’ or ‘cookies and other site data’.
Choose the time range. You can clear everything or just the cookies from the last hour, day, etc.

Blocking Cookies
If you’d rather not have cookies stored on your device, you can set your browser to block them:

In your browser’s cookie settings, look for an option to block cookies.
Decide if you want to block all cookies or just third-party cookies (these are usually the ones used for advertising).

Managing Cookies Site by Site
Some browsers let you manage cookies on a site-by-site basis. This means you can allow cookies for websites you trust and block them for others.

Look for a ‘manage exceptions’ or ‘site settings’ option in your browser’s cookie settings.

Add the websites you want to allow or block.


Managing cookies is all about finding the right balance for you. Want a personalised web experience? Allow some cookies. Prefer more privacy? Limit them. It’s your call!

We hope this guide helps you feel more in control of your online experience. Happy browsing!
