Controlling and deleting cookies
To control cookies, most browsers allow you to either accept or reject all cookies, only accept certain types of cookies, or prompt you every time a site wishes to save a cookie. It’s also easy to delete cookies that are already saved on your device.
The processes for controlling and deleting cookies vary depending on which browser you use. To find out how to do so with a particular browser, visit http://www.aboutcookies.org which explains, step-by-step, how to control and delete cookies in most browsers.
Most browsers will enable you to manage your cookies preferences e.g., have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or use it to disable cookies altogether. If you do decide to disable or delete them altogether some sites will not work as well as they rely on cookies to provide you with the services you have requested.
