For others who do not know, let’s start with, what are cookies?

When you visit practically any website, it creates and keeps a cookie on your computer — a little file containing information about your system and the actions you take on the site. Cookies can be created and used by both the sites you visit and third-party marketers.

There are two kinds of cookies:

First-party cookies are those set by the website you are on. The URL is displayed in the address bar.

Third-party cookies are cookies set by other websites. A website you visit may include content from other websites, such as images, advertisements, and text. Cookies and other data may be saved by any of these sites in order to tailor your experience.

Why mind about cookies?

Cookies from other services (sometimes known as “third-party cookies”) are typically utilized for targeted advertising or analytics. They can, for example, be used to determine which banners you clicked on or what things you look at in online stores. Because this type of attention is not appreciated by everyone, most browsers allow you to block it.

How do we block these cookies on your Chrome?

1.  Open your Google Chrome.

2. At the upper right, click More and then Settings.

3. Under “Privacy and security,” select Cookies and other site data.

4. Select the option: Block all cookies (Also, you may choose to only block third cookies here.)
