Why you should ALWAYS delete your web cookies (and how to do it)

The good news about cookies is that they're pretty easy to delete. Below, I'll tell you step by step how to delete cookies on popular web browsers, including Chrome, Edge and Firefox.

Although deleting cookies is slightly different for each browser, the steps boil down to this: Find your web browser's menu bar, often on the upper-right side of your computer screen. Look for something like History or Privacy, then click on that. Right click on a folder or file you want to delete. It might say something like, "Past 7 days."

Keep reading for steps to delete cookies on your web browser.

Note: Before you start deleting cookies, make sure you're OK with giving up the benefits of cookies. If you're not sure you want your computer to forget all your passwords, and all the personal information you've saved on sites, take your time. You may want to start by deleting older cookies. Look for folders that say something like, "Older than 6 months."
