Google Chrome cookies

Posted on: June 24, 2019

As entertaining as the video below might be about browser cookies, it is not quite accurate or informative.

The journalist made a point about how cookies track who we are, what we do, and when we do it; this helps marketers. This is true.

It is also true that Google Chrome is the most popular browser and that it is not immune to tracking cookies. But it is not true that it is difficult to switch this off. One needs only go to: Settings -> Advanced -> Site Settings -> Cookies -> Block third-party cookies.

I take that back. Not many will bother to change that setting if they do not know where or how to look for it.
