Block or Allow Browser Cookies in Samsung Internet browser

Browser cookies are used to remember the user’s login information and session details for a website. However, the Samsung Internet browser does offer the option to block or allow site cookies.

You can customize cookies settings and even block only third-party cookies for privacy protection.

In this guide, I have shared written instruction about:

Configure Site and Browser Cookies Settings

Samsung Internet app lets you enable or disable browser cookies for all websites with a single toggle button. Here are the steps to manage website cookies:

  1. Launch the Samsung Internet on your Android.
  2. Tap on More horizontal 3-bar icon for the menu list, and select the Settings menu option.

  3. Choose the Privacy and Security settings from the list.

  4. Switch the toggle button for the Accept Cookies tab menu.

Based on your settings, the websites have access to store cookies.

If you want to disable only third-party cookies on Samsung Internet, then tap the Accept cookies menu tab and disable toggle against the Allow third-party cookies option.

Allow or Block Third Party Cookies in Samsung Internet

If you disable the Accept cookies, none of the websites can store cookies on your smartphone. This way, some websites might refuse to work; in such a case, you should enable the cookies again.

Bottom Line

Remember that cookies are an integral part of the browser. They will save time by remembering your login credentials and storing your customized site preferences.

Blocking cookies for a website will also cause sign-in errors, and the site might misbehave. In such a case, we do not have any option other than allowing it on the browser.

Unfortunately, Samsung does not have the option to block site-specific cookies; you have to enable cookies for all websites or stop them completely.
