Are you facing issues with accessing certain websites on your Mac due to blocked 3rd party session cookies? If so, don’t worry! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of unblocking 3rd party session cookies on Mac, allowing you to access all the websites you want without any restrictions.

Step 1: Launch Safari

If you are using a Mac, chances are that you are already using Safari as your default browser. Open Safari by clicking on its icon located on the dock or by searching for it in the Applications folder.

Step 2: Access Preferences

To unblock 3rd party session cookies, we need to access Safari’s preferences. You can do this by clicking on “Safari” in the top menu bar and selecting “Preferences” from the dropdown menu.

Step 3: Navigate to Privacy Settings

In the Preferences window, click on the “Privacy” tab located at the top. This is where you can manage your privacy settings in Safari.

Step 4: Customize Cookie Settings

In the Privacy tab, you will find various options related to cookies. To unblock 3rd party session cookies, click on the “Manage Website Data..” button.

A new window will appear showing a list of websites that have stored data (including cookies) on your Mac. You can search for specific websites using the search bar or scroll through the list to find the website(s) you want to unblock.


  • Bold text indicates important information or actions that need to be taken.
  • Underlined text highlights key elements or terms for better clarity.
  • The usage of unordered lists helps in organizing the information in a clear manner.

Step 5: Unblock 3rd Party Session Cookies

Once you have found the website(s) you want to unblock, select it and click on the “Remove” button. This will remove all the stored data for that website, including session cookies.

If you want to unblock all websites at once, click on the “Remove All” button instead. However, keep in mind that this will remove all stored data from all websites, which may log you out from certain services and delete any saved preferences or settings.


Proceed with caution while removing data for all websites as it may have unintended consequences.

Step 6: Close Preferences and Restart Safari

After unblocking the desired websites, close the Preferences window. To ensure that the changes take effect, quit Safari completely by clicking on “Safari” in the top menu bar and selecting “Quit Safari”. Then, relaunch Safari again.

Congratulations! You have successfully unblocked 3rd party session cookies on your Mac. You should now be able to access previously blocked websites without any issues.

In conclusion, managing cookie settings is crucial for maintaining your privacy while browsing. By following these steps, you can easily unblock 3rd party session cookies on your Mac and enjoy seamless access to your favorite websites. Remember to be mindful of your privacy and only unblock cookies from trusted sources.


Always exercise caution when allowing third-party session cookies as they may pose potential security risks.
