I don’t want to be tracked, but I also want to stop every website and sometimes every webpage within a website I visit from asking me to “allow all” or “select my preferences”. It takes far too much time and effort to load a webpage, only allow the functional ones, and having to deal with all these other cookies.
I appreciate that all that is within the control of the websites, but is the Brave browser the solution to stop being asked all that in the first place? Or if do a one-click “allow all”, can Brave still override this and stop all the cookies and the trackers in the background?
How do you all visit websites on your mobile without being lumbered with cookies?
A. Cookies: Are very important for web browsing. Site uses them to save your passwords and site preferences. If you disable them, they’ll ask to enter password when you log in evry time! The default is to allow them but to disable third-party cookies
open Brave settings by clicking the three dots at bottom right,
2.Click on settings,
3.Click on site settings,
4.Click on cookies,
B. notifications: the steps are similar to cookies. Set Brave to allow notifications as they are necessary to receive ads.
I don’t have passwords or accounts with 99% of the websites I visit, and I don’t need to save any site preferences with them. In the 1% of websites where I want it to save my password, it would be good if I could allow that cookie, but it’s no big deal for me to manually enter my username and password.
I have followed your instructions but there is no “site settings” option under settings.
I’m not entirely clear how I would achieve what I have asked through your answer though. If we sort out which option in settings to set, are you saying I will achieve what I want, which is to no longer being asked to set preferences on websites?
So I am doing all this on my iphone. It looks like I am forever to be annoyed by cookie questions and slide buttons - no for analytics, no for performance, no for marketing, no for anything which doesn’t just give me a darned simple webpage without tracking my every move!
