” Clear cookies on your device with these simple steps and protect your personal information from hackers while speeding up your iPhone.”
A cookie is an element of data that a website places on your device so that the website can remember you the next time you visit. Cookies play an important role in personalizing your browsing experience by tracking your web activity and preferences.
For example, a shopping website would store cookies on your system that would help it remember your shopping cart information so you don’t have to start over next time.
However, cookies also pose privacy risks as they may store your sensitive information which could fall into the wrong hands if attacked by hackers or those with malicious intent. In addition, if they accumulate over time, they can take up storage space and slow down your device’s performance. Here are the different ways you can clear cookies on your iPhone (iOS 16) in 2022.
How to clear both your history and cookies
If you want to clear your entire browsing history, cookies and cache, all you have to do is go to Settings > Safari and tap on Clear History and Website Data. If you’re concerned that this will remove or change all of your AutoFill information from Safari, rest assured it isn’t.
To clear your cookies but keep your history
If you want to block cookies for future websites you visit, go to Settings > Safari and turn on Block all cookies. Blocking cookies may affect the performance of certain websites. For example, some features on a website may not work properly. You may also not be able to log in with your correct username and password.
