How to enable cookies on iPhone?

Would you be surprised if we said that cookies of any kind are good for you? Before you think ahead, we’re not talking about the edible cookies, we’re talking about the ones you have on your smartphones and PCs.

If you ask someone with basic technical knowledge, they will tell you that cookies are not safe for your devices. So you should probably disable them, right? Well, not quite.

The third-party cookies can be a bit intrusive and show you ads you’ve ever searched for. But first-party cookies are essential. That’s what helps you keep track of your passwords and personalize your web browsing experience. And none of your data is at risk, although most people are concerned about that.

How to enable cookies on iPhone?

In this article, we’ll share the steps required to enable your cookies on your iPhone in Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.

On a safari:

When using an iPhone, Safari is the default search engine, so it’s a given that you should check if the cookies are enabled there. Here’s what to do:

  • Start by opening Settings on your iPhone
  • Scroll down and navigate to Safari and click on it
  • Go to the Privacy & Security section and turn off the “Block all cookies” switch
  • For third-party cookies, you need to click on “Prevent cross-site tracking” and disable that switch as well.

In Google Chrome and Firefox:

If you use third-party browsers on your iPhone, the first-party cookies option is enabled by default. There is no separate option to turn that off. So you should do the same.

However, if you want to block the third-party cookies, there are ways to do this by going under Settings and then disabling the third-party cookies.

If you like a personalized web browsing experience, we strongly recommend that you do not disable the cookies as this will dampen the browsing experience and force you to start from scratch.
