Are you having trouble accessing certain websites on your Android device? It might be because your cookies are turned off.

Cookies are small files that websites store on your device to remember your preferences and provide a personalized browsing experience. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of turning cookies on for Android.

Step 1: Open Chrome Settings

To begin, open the Google Chrome browser on your Android device. Tap on the three vertical dots located at the top-right corner of the screen to open the menu. From the dropdown menu, select “Settings”.

Step 2: Access Site Settings

In the Chrome Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Site settings”. This will allow you to manage various settings related to website permissions.

Step 3: Enable Cookies

In the Site settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Cookies”. Here, you will find options to manage cookie settings.

Note: The wording and placement of these options may vary slightly depending on your Android device and version of Chrome.

Option 1: Allow all cookies

If you want to enable cookies for all websites without any restrictions, simply toggle the switch next to “Cookies” to enable it. This option is recommended if you trust all websites and want a seamless browsing experience.

Option 2: Allow cookies per site

If you prefer more control over which websites can store cookies on your device, choose this option. By default, it is set to “Blocked”. To enable cookies for specific websites:

  1. Tap on “Blocked” under Cookies in the Site settings menu.

  2. Next, tap on “Add site exception”.

  3. Enter the URL of the website for which you want to enable cookies.

  4. Tap on the “Allow” button to grant permission for cookies on that particular website.

Step 4: Save Changes

After you have made your desired changes to the cookie settings, tap on the back arrow located at the top-left corner of the screen to return to the Site settings menu. Finally, tap on “Back” again to exit the Chrome Settings menu and save your changes.

Tip: Clearing cache and data for individual websites can also help resolve certain browsing issues. You can find this option in the Site settings menu under “Storage & cache”. However, keep in mind that clearing cache and data will remove any stored login credentials or website preferences.

Congratulations! You have successfully turned on cookies for your Android device. Now you can enjoy a more personalized browsing experience and access websites that rely on cookies for functionality.
