Google Chrome 82 for Android introduces new cookie settings

In the new release of Google Chrome 82 for Android, an experimental feature is available that provides two options for managing cookies, Techdows said.

In the current stable version of Chrome 80 for all supported platforms, the user can allow or block cookies on all sites or simply block third-party ones. The latter is accompanied by a warning that some sites may not work correctly when the restriction is active.

The new Cookies user interface, which appeared in the Chrome Canary build for Android, contains four controls instead of two and the following description:

“Cookies are files created on user-visited websites. Sites use them to remember preferences. Third-party cookies are created by other sites. These sites own some content, such as ads or images that you see on the web page you visit. ”

One option allows you to prevent websites from reading and saving cookies when browsing incognito. An incognito browsing session begins with an empty internal profile that does not have cookies or session data, but they are added when you visit websites and are deleted when you close the last browser window in incognito mode.

Another option allows you to block all cookies. However, this option is not recommended, as it may affect the operation of some sites.

Sharing is caring!
