is there an app I can install to block cookies

Berichtdoor Jacobcullen » 11 Mar 2019, 12:15

Every website seems to want me to accept their use of cookies these days, I don't like it and I understand it can be harmful. Is there some kind of app that blocks cookies like ad blocker blocks adds?
Modbreak:
Tsssk, eerst een legitieme vraag stellen en dan spamlinks er in editen, foei.
The websites reasoning is always a vague which leads me to distrust them immediately but these days avoiding cookies basically means binning your devices. Any help or advice is appreciated cheers.
Thank you

Use Firefox on the computer and your mobile phone (if you use Android): both will allow the installation of add-ons.

There is an add-on called Cookie Auto Delete, which allows you for each domain or subdomain to automatically remove the cookies after closing the last tab for that (sub)domain.

You can greylist (sub)domains: those cookies will only be deleted upon closing your browser. You can also whitelist a (sub)domain: those cookies will survive a browser restart.
