 Self-Destructing Cookies

Websites use cookies to store data such as your login information or settings and create personalized content depending on your behavior on the website. For example, if you go to YouTube and type something in the search field, the website will use that information to offer you similar videos because it thinks that is what you are interested in.

However, a large number of websites use advertising company cookies, which follow you across the internet and spam you with offers. It is understandable why most users do not like this. The solution is to delete cookies. Deleting cookies manually can be tedious, and we don’t want to delete all cookies, but only the ones we don’t need.

We present to you Self-Destructing Cookies, a free plugin for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers that collects all cookies and deletes them as soon as you close the tab.

How do Self-Destructing Cookies work?

The best thing about the Self-Destructing Cookies plugin is that you don’t have to do absolutely anything. All you need to do is install the plugin, and it will do its job in the background.

When you close the tab in the browser, all so-called third-party cookies will be deleted, and you will be shown how many cookies there were. Third-party cookies are the ones that come from other web locations that are not the website you are currently visiting.

You can set all cookies to be deleted in the plugin options. Although we do not recommend this, cookies have their function, and it is desirable to have “good cookies”. In the settings, you can also choose to delete cookies when you close the tab or the browser, as well as to delay the deletion for a certain time.

Another handy option is the ability to whitelist a website. When a site is on this list, cookies will not be deleted, regardless of the plugin settings.

Conclusion

Self-Destructing Cookies is a phenomenal plugin, and we recommend that you install it. Since it works in the background, you don’t need any prior knowledge, and the default settings are quite sufficient.
