How to enable cookies on chrome

Cookies allow websites to remember settings and other information about the user. It is with their help that the next time you visit a website, relevant content will be displayed to you.

How to block cookies?

In the browser settings, we can block the saving of cookies and delete those already saved. The first option will make it difficult to use websites, such as online stores – for example, we will lose the option of “putting away” products to the shopping cart.

Therefore, use this option with caution and only in special situations that require it. It is worth periodically cleaning the cookies – it can help us solve problems with the website malfunctioning – e.g. login problems.

Click the Chrome menu icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
Select the menu option “Tools” -> “Clear browsing data …”. In the window that appears, check the boxes next to the types of information you want to delete. In the upper part of the displayed window, enter the range of data to be deleted. To delete everything, select the option “from the very beginning”. Click “Clear browsing data” to perform the operation.
