Thread: Deleting computer cookies

    Deleting computer cookies

    Is it worth doing? Do I gain anything by doing it?
    Does it have to be all or none, or can I wade through and keep some?
    Thanks in advance

    In short yes it is worth doing every now and again, it can help your browser run faster and smoother and can also fix glitches and unresponsive web pages.

    However you will find that you have to log in to everything again after, this can be a mild inconvenience especially if like me you tend to forget all your passwords.

    It doesn't delete all login details! These are normally saved in your browser settings and remain there until YOU go in and delete them.

    It is certainly worth deleting cookies and cache as they also are used for tracking and marketing purposes. I set my browser to automatically delete both whenever the browser is closed.

    I delete cookies fairly regularly.
    Uname and p/ws are not deleted, but "trusted"status on my bank logins are.
    So I load up the login page, uname comes up as an option when I click the box;
    Pw comes up the same way on SOME sites but not all;
    I always have to enter certain characters from my 'memorable info';
    then I have to have external confirmation via one-time-password eg by text;
    \\then I can "trust" my device, which means I don't have to worry about the external confirmation step - until I delete cookies.
