and install add-ons and plugins that extend the functionality of the browser.
However, these operations may result in the deletion of all cookies used by the browser, including those used by other websites, which may lead to the alteration or loss of certain settings or information and make it difficult to navigate the website.
- A number of websites provide detailed information about cookies, including AboutCookies.org and AllAboutCookies.org.
- The European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance's website, Your Online Choices, allows you to set opt-out cookies on various ad networks.
- Google has developed a browser add-on that allows users to opt-out of Google Analytics for all websites that use it. This add-on is also available in the Chrome Web Store.
- Some browsers include a feature called "Do Not Track" or DNT. This feature allows you to indicate a preference for websites not to track you. However, while DNT is available in many browsers, websites are not required to recognize its request, so it doesn't always work. You can get help using DNT in Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.
- Internet Explorer has a feature called "Tracking Protection Lists" that allows you to import a list of websites you want to block.
