Making sure privacy is protected with cookies means we need to be very careful with how we handle data, follow laws like GDPR, and let users know how we’re using cookies.
Both people who use websites and people who create websites have a part to play in this. Users should change their browser settings to what they’re comfortable with and know about tools to help with privacy, while people who make websites need to focus on safe, privacy-friendly code to make the internet safe without limiting what websites can do.
Managing Browser Configurations
You can change the settings for cookies to find a balance between using websites easily and keeping your privacy. By doing this, you can control how much of your information is saved and used when you visit websites again.
