How to Allow Session Cookies on Mac

Session cookies are small pieces of data that websites store on your computer during a browsing session. These cookies help websites remember your preferences and keep you logged in. However, sometimes session cookies may be blocked by default on your Mac, which can cause inconvenience when navigating certain websites.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to allow session cookies on your Mac:

Step 1: Open Safari Preferences

To begin, open the Safari browser on your Mac and click on the “Safari” menu located at the top-left corner of the screen. From the drop-down menu, select “Preferences.”

Step 2: Access Privacy Settings

In the Preferences window that opens, navigate to the “Privacy” tab. Here you will find various options related to website data and cookies.

Step 3: Adjust Cookie Settings

Under the “Cookies and website data” section, you will see a few options:

  • Always block: This option blocks all cookies from websites.
  • Allow from current website only: This option allows cookies only from the website you are currently visiting.
  • Allow from websites I visit: This option allows cookies from all websites you visit.

To enable session cookies, select either “Allow from current website only” or “Allow from websites I visit.” The former option is more restrictive and recommended for enhanced privacy while allowing necessary session cookies.

Step 4: Save Changes

After selecting your preferred cookie setting, close the Preferences window by clicking the red “X” button at the top-left corner. Safari will automatically save your changes.

Note: It’s important to remember that allowing cookies from all websites can potentially expose your browsing habits and personal information to third-party advertisers. It is advisable to regularly clear your cookies and website data for better privacy.

By following these simple steps, you can easily allow session cookies on your Mac and enjoy a seamless browsing experience on websites that require them.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful. Happy browsing!
