Internet users may have noticed that many websites have small windows or popups notifying them that the website they’re on uses cookies and requires permission to use them. Cookies are small bits of data that store information for the website. Generally, cookies are entirely harmless, but some users view them as a breach of privacy. Because of this, many countries have passed laws requiring websites to ask permission to use and store cookies. The negative side effect of this is that if you don’t have cookies enabled, you may not be able to use the site at all.

1. Chrome

Most polls show Chrome as the most popular internet browser in the world, accounting for over 60% of all internet browser users by most surveys. This is partially due to Chrome’s interface, which is easy to use. For example, enabling cookies in Chrome is straightforward. First, click on the Chrome menu button on the browser bar. The button itself is three vertical dots. When the menu opens, choose Settings and then click on the blue search bar at the top of the Settings menu. Type “cookies,” scroll down to Content Settings, and click on the section once you find it. When you’re in the Content Settings menu, click on Cookies and make sure the slider next to “Allow sites to save and read cookie data” is blue. If it isn’t blue, click on it to enable cookies.
