smart cookie handling

Recommended Posts

Intelligent cookie checks to see if any are known sign in cookies and auto moves those cookies to the cookies to keep column (example google's cookie). For some this is good because they'll lose less 'sign in's in their 1st clean

Thanks Nergal and Andavari both of your replies were helpful, however when I close my browser, then go to Internet Options> Settings> View Files, there are several cookies listed there and I cannot tell one from another.

 

I like to use the website: "Network Advertising Initiative" in order to use opt-out of advertising cookies from participating internet advertisers.

These are the only cookies I am interested in keeping.

 

Is there a way to actually distinguish these opt-out cookies from other cookies?

 

 

Thanks

The cookies section of ccleaner allows you to choose any cookies that you want and put them in cookies to keep. Since the only one you care about is the opt out one I'd suggest not bothering with intelligent cookie (I don't use the intelligent scan, myself).

If I want to find out what cookies a particular website uses the I open my browser, go to that website and nowhere else, close the browser, open CC and look what cookies are in the 'Cookies on Computer' list.

 

If you need to refine it more than that then try visiting the same site with the opt-outs off and with the opt-outs on, and compare the 2 lists of cokies.

I think you'll be in for a ton of work that will take a long time configuring CCleaner to only keep the opt-out's.

 

Another alternative is to instead use a HOSTS file (no configuring needed), such as the MVPS.org HOSTS file to block ads, and to block malware.

I search for OPT in the cookies which finds most opt-outs. Then move them.
