How to Enable Cookies on iPhone: Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Firefox

Sometimes, those who care about security and privacy will advise you to "block" or "deactivate" cookies on your web browser. But is that the best recommendation?

Cookies are just little text files that websites install on your computer (or phone, or wherever else you browse the web), and their main function is to save your preferences and settings for the websites you visit.

First-Party cookies

In the Privacy & Security section, you can find the Block All Cookies setting. If this slider is moved to the right (and becomes green), all cookies will be disabled. A lot of websites may really stop working properly if you disable all cookies, so be careful! Many websites won't let you use them if you don't have First-Party Cookies enabled since they are typically utilized when you check in.

Third-Party cookies

The setting above it, though, is the other one you should focus on: Stop tracking across sites. Third-Party Cookies are controlled by this option as well. One of the main ways that businesses track your online behavior is through these third-party cookies, which are cookies that other websites than the one you are visiting create.

The screenshot above shows how Prevent Cross-Site Tracking may be enabled to prevent third-party cookies while Block All Cookies is often disabled to allow cookies.

The element Block Cookies

By doing this, you will permit cookies from the websites you visit, but you may prohibit third parties, such as embedded "Like" or "Share" buttons, from sharing your browsing history with marketers.

You have customized your Cookie settings

Congratulations, you've just set up Cookies in iOS's Safari. Take Note! You must restart Safari for the setting to take full effect if you recently enabled the Prevent Cross-Site Tracking function.
