Clear, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

You can choose to delete existing cookies, allow or block all cookies, and set preferences for certain websites.

What cookies are

Cookies are files created by websites you visit. They make your online experience easier by saving browsing information. With cookies, sites can keep you signed in, remember your site preferences, and give you locally relevant content.

There are two types of cookies:

  • First-party cookies are created by the site you visit. The site is shown in the address bar.
  • Third-party cookies are created by other sites. These sites own some of the content, like ads or images, that you see on the webpage you visit.

If you remove cookies, you'll be signed out of websites and your saved preferences could be deleted.

You can allow cookies from the site you visit, while blocking cookies from other sites that own ads or images on the webpage. To block these third-party cookies, check the box next to "Block third-party cookies and site data."

  7. Under "Behavior," select Allow, Block, or Clear on exit.
  8. At the bottom right, click Done.

To remove exceptions you don't want any more, point to the site or domain. Click Remove Remove and then Done.
