New cookies management on Brave beta

Good evening

I use Brave beta V1.63.131.

I used to enter urls in the custom behaviors tab.

sites always allowed to use

after closing

and never

I have a large number of them and I’m happy with this system for authorizing certain cookies on sites I visit daily and disallowing others natively

But I’ve just seen that this feature has disappeared. I still have a tab open on the brave://settings/cookies page to modify a domain upwards or downwards.

I also use the shield and a number of cookie-blocking extensions with ticked lists. In short, I’m careful to be able to surf without being tracked all the time, if that’s even possible.

On my standard Brave V1.161.120 version, this feature is still available.

I used to use Chrome, but even in private browsing I was tracked.

I know that Chrome implements an alternative third-party cookie management system that is very controversial.

But I don’t understand Brave’s decision to remove the choice of adding, banning or closing domain names in order to manage the deposit of cookies yourself and not just third parties.

please enlighten me. Progress or not?

Yes, these were removed intentionally to get rid of redundancies. I believe we are also working on a hotfix so that the changes made in Shields are all reflected on that page (brave://settings/cookies) and easy to view.

You can still accomplish what you need to with Shields. For example, if you want to eliminate the possibility of being tracked entirely, from the first time you land on the site, I’d recommend the following:

  1. In Brave, change your Global Shields default (brave://settings/shields) value for Cookies to All — this will block all cookies on all sites by default (this is optional, Brave already blocks cross-site cookies by default, but this way you’ll be able to block everything initially and then pick and choose which sites you’d like to allow cookies on, as described below).

  2. For sites that you trust and want to allow cookies on, simply go to the URL, open the Shields panel and change the cookie setting to Allow all cookies or Block cross-site cookies (depending on your preference). Changes made in the Shields panel while on a particular website are applied only to that website and will persist.

  3. Unfortunately there is no per-site “clear on exit” option. However, there is a close approximation. For sites that you’d like to clear your data for when it’s closed, open the Shields panel and toggle the Forget me when I close this site option “on”. Now any data stored on the webpage your on will be deleted once the tab is closed.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.


Thank you for your reply.

I’ve used the shield again for some of the sliders and often it’s the aggressive digital footprint that blocks the display of the entire page without touching the cookie and tracker blocking settings.

I’ve even managed to reassociate messages by google in web version when for some reason I had an error message on my app without having changed anything.

In addition, I use a large number of plugins to guarantee the best possible protection of my data, and I try to keep up to date.

I saw that the Brave Standard version had also been modified for cookie management.
