What are cookies, and how do I enable or disable them on my Samsung Galaxy device?
Cookies are small amounts of data sent by websites that are stored on your computer or phone. Cookies are mainly used to store your usernames and passwords, which makes it quicker and easier to use your favourite websites. Cookies are also used to store information such as your searches. This helps to improve suggested content and personalize the ads you see.
You can allow or disallow all cookies in your browser’s settings. If you only want to disable cookies for certain websites, you will have to change the settings on the sites themselves. It’s important to bear in mind that some websites require you to enable cookies in order to save your preferred settings, and some websites may not run if you do not allow cookies on them.
On the Samsung Internet app, you can manage the cookie settings for all websites in one place. This means you won’t have to manage the settings for each individual website.
