What is the Cookie pop-up blocker, and how does it work?

The Cookie pop-up blocker is a Surfshark VPN browser extension feature that allows you not to see cookie consent pop-ups. It doesn’t prevent cookie consent notices from loading but just ensures you don’t get bombarded with annoying cookie pop-ups. In other words, it rejects all possible cookies, and if it can’t – then it accepts them. You can use it together with other cookie-clearing techniques to make your digital life cookie-free.

How to get the Cookie notice blocker

Step 1:

Step 2:

Download the Surfshark extension for Chrome.

Step 3:

Go to the General Settings on the extension and toggle the Cookie pop-up blocker.

FAQ

What are cookies?

Cookies are small blocks of data that store information inside your browser. Cookies help websites and third parties track your activity on their site.

What are cookie pop-ups?

Cookie pop-ups (otherwise known as cookie notices or cookie banners) are notifications that many websites use to get consent from you to track your data.

Why does “accept cookies” keep popping up?

Since the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) were enacted, most websites were forced by law to inform their visitors of cookies and must ask them to provide consent for cookie tracking. So if you’re located in the EU, you get these pop-ups on every site you visit.

Most websites won’t allow you to access their content until you accept their cookies. This can get very tedious, and that’s why we’re presenting our Cookie blocker

Is there any other way I can block cookie pop-ups?

You can play around with your browser settings (look for privacy or pop-up settings) to turn them off. However, most websites will not allow you to access their content unless you interact with their cookie banners. That’s why a Cookie pop-up blocker, plus clearing your cookies, is a better solution.
