How to manage, disable and delete cookies

If you do not want a website or blog to store cookies on your computer, you can adapt the browser settings so that you are notified each time a cookie requests to download and install, or, to reject all cookies or only those of third parties. In addition, you can delete any of the cookies that are already on your computer.

Most browsers allow the management of cookies in 3 different ways:

  • Cookies are always rejected.
  • The browser asks if the user wants to install each cookie.
  • Cookies are always accepted.

The browser may also include the possibility to specify better which cookies have to be accepted and which ones are not.

  • You usually have these options:
  • Reject the cookies of certain domains.
  • Reject third-party cookies.
  • Accept cookies as non-persistent (they are deleted when the browser closes).
  • Allow the server to create cookies for a different domain.

You will have to adapt the configuration of each browser and equipment that you use separately. Here I give you some guides so that you know how to configure the installation of cookies in the most popular browsers:

If you wish, you can disable Google Analytics tracking through this browser add-on offered by Google.

Web browsers are the tools in charge of storing cookies and from this place you have to make your right of elimination or deactivation of them. Francisco José Martínez Vicente can not guarantee the correct or incorrect manipulation of cookies by these.

In some cases it is necessary to install cookies so that the browser does not forget your decision not to accept them.
