The following will explain how to enable and disable cookies in your browser. Since cookies are maintained by your web browser, the methods for enabling or disabling them will vary depending on which browser you are using.
Select the ‘Tools > Internet Options’ menu item, and then open the ‘Privacy’ tab – you can then adjust the slider to block or allow various categories of cookie. Alternatively by clicking ‘Advanced…’ you can exercise finer control over the browser’s behavior, choosing whether to accept, block, or prompt for cookies originating either on the website you are visiting (first party cookies) or originating from websites other than the one you are visiting (third party cookies, typically used by banner advertisements hosted on an advertiser’s website).
Use the ‘Tools > Options’ menu item (may be under the Firefox button or ‘parallel lines’ menu button), then choose the ‘Privacy’ tab. Set the ‘Firefox will:’ option to ‘Use custom settings for history’. Now you can choose whether cookies are enabled for websites you visit and third party websites, and if so how long they will persist. You can also use the ‘Exceptions’ button to override the settings for particular websites.
Use the ‘Tools->Options’ menu item, then choose the ‘Privacy’ tab. Here you can choose whether cookies are enabled, and if so how long they will persist. You can also use the ‘Exceptions’ button to override the settings for particular websites.
Click the ‘parallel bars’ menu button, choose the ‘Settings’ option, then scroll down and click ‘Show advanced settings’. Alternatively for older versions of Chrome choose ‘Options’ on the ‘Customize and control’ menu, then open the ‘Under the Bonnet’ tab. In the ‘Privacy’ section, click on the ‘Content settings…’ button and open the ‘Cookies‘ tab. Set the required cookie behaviour and use the ‘Exceptions…’ button (if required) to configure specific websites.
From the home screen tap the ‘Settings’ icon, then choose ‘Safari’. Find the ‘Accept Cookies’ option and set the required cookie behaviour. Settings > Safari > Privacy and Security > Block cookies > Select allow from websites I visit or always allow.
Tap the ‘Internet’ icon to start the browser, then press the phone’s menu button. From the list of options, choose ‘More’, and then select ‘Settings’, then ‘Privacy and Security’. Scroll down the resulting list and check or uncheck the ‘Accept Cookies’ item.
Start Chrome, then open the options menu and scroll down to ‘Settings’, followed by ‘Site setttings’. You can now choose whether to allow sites to save and read cookie data.
NOTE: Disabling cookies will prevent some websites from working correctly, and may mean that you are prompted to re-enter information that would normally have been stored .
