Re: Do you delete cookies?

Postby oldfriend » 08 Nov 2018, 21:59

I delete cookies, as well as history quite frequently.

I use a Password manager that enters my passwords for me to prevent me from having to enter the necessary information when I go back to that site.

Further more many sites install cookies to colect information that you do not even know you are giving to them, so it is also a question of safety.


I don't use any third part software when it comes to cleaning and clearing my cache and cookies. I don't even trust those third party sites and nor do I know what they can do with my information. I do it manually.

I normally set my Browser to clear caches after closing it. I hope that this works, but if there are cookies that are programmatically meant not to be removed by this option, then they might not clear up by doing so.

I almost forgot that the different browsers have this feature - setting cookies to auto clear upon closure. Oh yes but still, how about if you had not not saved an important password like its that now there are auto generated aka suggested passwords?

Yes, but I always have a problem remembering my passwords. So I have to figure it out first before going to clean or delete cookies. Even if I save my passwords in phone or other places, most of the time I forgot it.

I don't clear cookies in normal course but only when a situation demands clear cookies and caches. In fact, I have a few set of passwords that I keep changing so there is a very little chance I will forget my passwords.

These days every site has to declare their cookies policy otherwise they will be trouble.
Regarding deleting cookies i generally do it every week to clean up my system.

I do the same what you are doing. I know cookies play an important role in the sites that we usually used to or often visit. They gather our activities in their own sites. They monitor our frequent actions. However, when my browser gets stuck or won't work because of that I have to clean them, refreshing my browser to normally function. That is why I always have a ready list of passwords I have had in a particular site for easy retrieval.

I clear cooking when I feel than my computer is some slow. My laptop is 10 years old so I clear history and cookies regularly. I am not changing my pass word.

No, I never looked at this matter but for reviving my password in a survey site, I had to delete my cookies but still, it did not work!

I do that in regular interval. It is essential to run some sites specially survey sites properly. As each of the site we visit leaves a cookie behind it is prudent to remove them regularly.
