Empty the Cookie Jar! [How to Delete Cookies]

Empty the Cookie Jar! [How to Delete Cookies] 1
You know how when you open a new website a window pops up asking you to accept cookies, the non-edible kind? Have you ever wondered what those are and why everyone shoves them in your face?

Today you will learn what internet cookies are, why they are useful and most importantly – why you should manage them. We’ll tell you how to delete cookies easily – with the help of screenshots and a step-by-step explanation.

It doesn’t matter if you use:

  • Desktop or mobile
  • Android or iOS
  • Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, or Opera

… either way, we’ve got you! Now let’s get our hands on the cookie jar!

What Is a Cookie?

It is a small, innocent-looking file that enables your browser and different websites to track you. In this way, cookies gather information about your online habits, likes, and login information.

Basically, they are like cute little stalkers…until they get too creepy and obsessed with you. At this point, you get curious about how to clear those pesky cookies.

Why Are They Useful?

If you can’t remember your numerous account names and passwords or you just can’t be bothered, cookies are great for saving all this info for you. Moreover, if you prefer seeing more relevant ads and your already customized preferences, cookies are there to please you.

Why Should You Manage Them?

On the plus side, cookies can be convenient and they help you log in automatically in various accounts. Still, they may endanger your privacy and allow advertisers to stalk you – or worse, they can give someone the opportunity to hack you.

Knowing how to delete cookies (and doing it regularly) helps you keep your information safe. What’s more, deleting them feels like a fresh start as your browsing experience suddenly gets a fair bit faster.

You don’t want your browser to remember something? You can remove cookies with just a few clicks – as easy as erasing someone’s memory in Men in Black.

Now that you know the benefits of cookie management, here is how to clear cookies on different browsers. Defeat all the cookies and become a true cookie-slayer!
