You could be unknowingly giving third-party’s access to all your personal information, browsing history and surfing habits.
Data can be stored on your computer without you even knowing in a multitude of different formats: Cookies, Flash Cookies, Databases and local Storage.
Cookie scans your computer for ALL types of Cookies, from all the top browsers, and is easily configured to remove all unwanted/tracking-advertising cookies. Cookie is super easy to use, just configure it once, and take control of your sensitive personal information.
Most websites you visit will leave a small file called a ‘cookie’ on your computer to store information about you, and store any relevant site preferences. Most of the time this is fine, however some sites use this information to track your surfing habits for profiling/advertising purposes and more….
Flash Cookies, can potentially be even more insidious, as they can store up-to 25x more information (100Kb) than regular cookies. Flash Cookies can even be used to restore regular cookies, long after the original cookie has been deleted.
Databases, and Local Storage are generally more innocuous, and are used mainly by web applications to store data.
Cookie, helps you to manage exactly who can access information about your online activities, all in one convenient location.
With a clear and intuitive interface, Cookie is a must have application for anyone serious about protecting their personal information.
After an initial simple setup, Cookie requires minimal effort to keep your computer clear from unwanted data-mining.
*Cookie is currently optimised specifically to manage data from Safari 5+, WebKit, Chrome 10+, Chromium 10+, Camino 2+, Firefox 4+.
All in all a great tool for removing any unwanted cookies from your Mac computer.
The developer is very responsive as well. I sent an email before I purchased to find out some details of how Cookie worked and got a very quick personal respone. I also sent an email with technical questions and received a very quick personal response again. A++++ developer and app!
I bought Cookie Stumbler before I discovered this developer and his app. I was unhappy with Cookie Stumber, personally. Cookie Stumbler forces you to quit your browser to delete the tracking cookies because it can’t delete them while the browser is open. It’s not very inuitive (to me) either. YMMV. Cookie is a much better app for my needs since it’s intuitive and deletes the cookies with my browser open, even while I surf the web.
