  2. In the section labeled “History,” you'll find a drop-down menu where you can click “Use custom settings history.” This will then allow you to select from a number of options, which are:
    1. To disable all cookies, deselect the option Accept cookies from site as this will have been pre-selected as default.
    2. To block all third-party cookies, or to accept all third-party cookies (from sites you've visited before), you can deselect or select the option Accept third-party cookies.

    4. To choose how long you keep cookies for (eg, until you close the browser or the cookies expire), opt for the Keep until option.


Controlling Cookies in Microsoft Edge

  1. In the settings menu of the browser, click on “View advanced settings” which you'll find at the bottom of the page.
  2. At the bottom of the next page you'll find a drop-down menu for cookies, which presents you with three straightforward options, which are:
    1. Don't block cookies (this will have been preselected by default)
    2. Block all cookies
    3. Block only third-party cookies.

There isn't the option to delete all cookies when you close Microsoft Edge. However, you are able to do this if you go back into the primary settings menu. At the top of the “Advanced Settings” menu you'll notice a « button — click on this.

Next, you'll need to choose the button that says “Choose what to clear”, which is located just below the “Clear browsing data” option. Click the option Cookies and saved website data, before selecting the option that says Always clear this when I close the browser.


Controlling Cookies in Internet Explorer

It doesn't matter whether you're using IE 9, 10, or 11, because cookies are all handled in the same way.

  1. Start by opening the “Internet Options” menu before selecting the “Privacy” tab and then the “Advanced” option.
  2. From this next menu you'll be able to establish what policy you want in place for first- and third-party cookies. You can also override the current cookie policy or you can select Always allow session cookies.
  3. If you want to be able to delete cookies each time Internet Explorer is closed, you'll just need to return to the “General” tab, before selecting the option — Delete browsing history on exit.
  4. To save and apply these changes, you'll need to click “Apply,” which is at the bottom of the menu.


Controlling Cookies on Mobile Devices


As a native browser is included with most mobile operating systems, the process of managing cookies on mobile devices can be entirely different to that of desktop browsers. Furthermore, the mobile version of a desktop browser may not present you with as many options, which can create further complications. Here's how to can manage cookies on iOS, Android, and Blackberry mobile devices:


Controlling Cookies on an Apple iOS Device

  1. If on iOS you use Safari, you can use the “Settings” app to manage your cookie policies.
  2. Simply scroll down to select “Safari.” Once in this section, you'll need to scroll down to the option “Block cookies.” Here, you'll be presented with four options, which are:
    1. Always Block
    2. Allow from Current Website Only (these are first-party cookies)
    3. Allow from Websites I Visit (this allows a limited number of third-party cookies and is the default option)
    4. Always Allow.

However, if you're using Chrome, you won't be able to manage the cookie policy. You will, however, be able to delete them. To delete the cookies on Chrome, you'll need to open the app and select the “Settings” option from the menu. Scroll down to “Privacy” and then to “Clear Browsing Data.” Here you can select what it is that you want to delete, so make sure you select “Site Data” and “Cookies” before selecting to “Clear Browsing Data.”

Regardless of whether you're using Chrome or Safari, you will be given the option to browse “Incognito” or “Privately”, respectively. Simply open up a new tab using these options, making sure you close this tab when you've done so no cookies are stored after your browsing session has finished.


Controlling Cookies on an Android Device

A built-in browser is standard with most Android devices, however, these browsers can vary with each phone model and manufacturer. Therefore, how you manage the cookies in these browsers can vary quite a lot.

In general, you'll need to open up the browser, and the browser's settings menu, before locating the privacy settings. If your phone is using Chrome, you'll be able to manage your cookie policy with ease. All you need to do is go to the menu and find “Settings”, navigating yourself to “Site Settings” before selecting “Cookies.” Here, you'll be able to turn on or off your acceptance of cookies, deciding whether you want to Allow third-party cookies or not, while also managing the websites that are exempt from Chrome's cookie policy.


Controlling Cookies on a Blackberry Device

You will find some of the more recent Blackberry devices are run by Android, which means managing cookies on these phones can be done using the procedure discussed in the Android section above. However, if your device is running Blackberry 10, you'll need to do the following:

  1. Run the browser and go to its menu
  2. Choose “Settings” before clicking “Privacy and Security”
  3. Here, you'll be able to choose whether you want to accept cookies or not, clear all cookies, and manage the exceptions of certain websites.
