Brave will limit the amount of third-party cookies being used (compare to other browsers). If you also manually adjust cookies in shields, this will also show up in cookies stored in your PC.

Some doubleclick cookies are used for video playback (and blocking some cookies will break video playback), so you have to be careful. Of course, I’d be interested the website source of the doubleclick cookie.

Oh ok,
I have now set it to delete all cookies after closing Brave, and that works fine.


There is no harm in deleting that cookie, or any ad-related cookie.
