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 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. After some time those requests will reappear because companies can’t store cookies for any longer than 12 months. 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.
Will the Cookie pop-up blocker affect my browsing experience?
Our Cookie pop-up blocker is designed to improve your browsing experience. You will have a much smoother time browsing the internet without constantly dealing with pop-ups.
The Surfshark Cookie pop-up blocker accepts essential cookies that could otherwise harm your browsing experience if blocked.
If you need the cookie blocker to bypass a certain website, you can set that up through the Surfshark extension:
- Open the website that you want to bypass;
- Click on the Surfshark extension;
- Press “add to bypass list” in the top-right corner;
- Check the “Bypass CleanWeb” box and click the “Add & reload” button.
How do I turn off the Cookie pop-up blocker?
Turning off the cookie notice blocker is really simple:
- Click on the Surfshark extension;
- Press the settings button on the left side of the tab;
- Click the CleanWeb settings option;
- Click the button next to the “Cookie pop-up blocker” option.
When you want to turn the Cookie pop-up blocker back on, simply repeat the same steps.
