I remember Brave shield used to show allow/disallow third party cookies.
Now the options are:
- block cross-site cookies
- allow all cookies
- block all cookies
This means among third party cookies only “cross-site” cookies will be blocked if I choose option 1.
Is this enough? or is there a way to block all third party cookies completely?
Plus can any one confirm is this cross-site cookie is what “Privacy badger” add on is doing (by heuristic analysis)

…@mattches can you help? Thanks
“Cross-site” data and “3rd party” data are interchangeable in this context. When you block 3p (cross-site) trackers/cookies/etc, what you’re blocking is data that is being sent, requested, or displayed on a website whose domain the data (or requested data) does not originate. That is, coming from another domain/site (cross-site).
Does this answer your question?
Got it. Thanks for the information.
So I understood this as third party cookies = cross-site cookies. Is this correct?
Why I am asking this was firefox gives separate options for cross-site cookies and tracking content may be because people can chose one or the other. I am sure Brave these options plus many more. Just to clarify myself.
Is there any page in Brave website or Github page where there are more details on this topic.
Thanks a lot

Sorry… forgot to mention… Firefox Nightly. But I see this in Firefox beta too. Not sure about Firefox stable.
Under privacy & security select custom option.
It looks like the top
Cookies option refers specifically to cookies and social media trackers (Brave also does this, see
Tracking content refers to their general tracking protection (i.e. Disconnect).
