Step By Step How to Delete Cookies-Whenever you use any web browser like Chrome, Firefox or Safari, it saves the information from the website in the form of cookies. The cookies can be both a blessing and a curse.
Blessing in the sense, as it saves your login credentials and other information, so the websites will remember what your preferences are. It can also keep track of all your items in the shopping cart or wishlist. This can make logging into the websites elementary since you don’t have to remember too many passwords.

If you want to protect your privacy, then you can delete cookies. However, you will lose the stored passwords that you don’t remember.
