A Smarter Way To Crumble Browser Cookies


By: Drew McManus

Clearing browser cookies is just one of those things you need to do every now and then but clearing them out in bulk can be a serious hassle, such as losing all of your saved login info. 🤬

Fortunately, there’s been a multi-step trick to use for clearing cookies on a per-URL basis but after years of consistency, the most recent Google Chrome update has changed the process (for the better).

This is so useful, I recommend keeping it at the top of your bookmark list and if you use a bookmark bar, you should find a place for it. If you have the previous URL bookmarked, you’ll need to update it to chrome://settings/content/all

Just enter that into your browser bar and you’ll be greeted with the following:

  1. Enter chrome://settings/content/all into your browser bar and enter the URL of the site that needs cookies removed.
  2. Select the trash icon to delete all cookies found.

That’s all there is to it.

You can even set Chrome to block cookies for a URL over a specific period of time. You can find those instructions at the official Chrome Help documentation.

In addition to my consulting business, I'm also the Principal of Venture Industries Online but don’t let that title fool you into thinking I'm just a tech geek. I bring 20+ years of global broad-based arts consulting experience to the table to help clients break the cycle of choosing one-size-fits-none solutions and instead, deliver options allowing them to get ahead of the tech curve instead of trying to catch up by going slower. With the vision of legacy support strategy and the delights of creative insights, my mission is to deliver a sophisticated next generation technology designed especially for the field of performing arts. The first step in that journey began in 2010 when The Venture Platform was released, a purpose-designed managed website development solution designed especially for arts organizations and artists. For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, lead a team of intrepid arts pros to hack the arts, lead an arts business incubator, and love a good coffee drink.
