It will immediately disable the browser cookies and block cookie storage from other websites.

However, blocking all the website cookies is not a recommended setting. It will result in misbehavior of the websites and won’t allow to sign in to any websites.

Allow Sites Cookies except Third-party to Save

Blocking the browser cookies for all the websites is not recommended. Hence it’s good to allow cookies from all sites or at least block cookies for third-party websites.

  1. Launch the Brave browser on the computer.
  2. Click on the More horizontal 3-bar icon menu and select the Settings option.
    Brave browser Settings menu option

Based on the selection, it will immediately allow the cookies to be set from the websites. The websites will now be able to store and read cookies from the storage space.

However, allowing cookies for all websites is not a good option, especially for privacy reasons. Hence, it’s good to have a customized configuration that will allow cookies to be set for the sites that you frequently use and need you to stay sign-in.

Manage the Cookies Settings and Site Exceptions

The Brave browser offers fully customizable browser cookies management. We can allow or block the browser cookies setting for selected websites. We can customize the site URL and place them in desired buckets to manage cookies’ behavior upon action.

The first allows the user to clear cookies and site data upon exit. The second one allows the user to send a Do Not Track request with the browsing traffic.
