Learn about on-device site data in Chrome

You can allow websites to temporarily save data on your device to make your experience on their website better. This is called “on-device site data,” and when turned on, it helps websites do things like keep your shopping cart active when you leave.

You can choose how a website saves data on your device:

  • Allow sites to save data on your device: Sites are more likely to work as you expect.
  • Delete data sites have saved to your device when you close all windows: Sites will probably work as you expect but are less likely to remember you from one visit to the next.
  • Don’t allow sites to save data on your device (not recommended): Sites may not work as you expect. Choose this option if you don’t want to leave information on your device about sites you visit.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. Click Privacy and security and then Site settings.
