What to do about unwanted cookies

  • Deleting cookies – Some web browsers allow you to delete cookies. If your browser allows this, you’ll be able to change your settings so that whenever you close your browser, it will delete any cookies that have been put on during that session of browsing.
  • Refusing cookies – Just remember that if you change your browser settings to refuse all cookies – in other words, websites won’t be able to put them on your device at all. If you’re worried about ‘spyware’, then rather than refusing all cookies, you may find you can use anti-spyware software to achieve the same goal by automatically deleting cookies it thinks are invasive.
  • Getting a warning about cookies – You can change your browser settings to warn you before cookies are used (and get the option of using them or not). You can do this by following the instructions in your browser. These are normally in the Help, Tools, or Edit menus.

How to stop unwanted adverts
