How to Block Cookies in the Chrome Browser on an iPhone 6

Websites that you visit on the Internet often use small pieces of data called cookies to track you as you use their sites. Typically these cookies are not being used for anything malicious, and simply allow the site to keep you logged into an account, or to remember your preferences for using their site.

But if you find that you do not wish to allow a site to use cookies, then you can choose not to accept them in your Web browser. Most browsers allow you to make this change, and the Chrome browser app on your iPhone is no different. You can read our tutorial below to learn how to block cookies in Chrome on your iPhone.

Note that blocking cookies in your Web browser can have a negative impact on your browsing experience, as many websites use cookies to keep you logged into an account, or to place items into a shopping cart. If you find that a website is not functioning as intended, then you may need to re-enable the option to accept cookies in Chrome if you wish to use that site.

Do you also use the Safari browser on your iPhone? This article will show you how to block cookies in that app as well.
