Answered by Douglas Hiatt

To make your iPhone automatically delete cookies, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone. It is a gray icon with gears on it, usually found on the home screen.

2. Scroll down and tap on “Safari”. This will open the Safari settings.

3. In the Safari settings, scroll down to find the “Privacy & Security” section. Tap on it to access the privacy settings.

4. Look for the “Block All Cookies” option and make sure it is turned off. When this option is turned on, Safari will prevent all websites from saving cookies on your device.

5. Below the “Block All Cookies” option, you will find the “Prevent Cross-Site Tracking” option. This feature helps limit websites from tracking your browsing activity across multiple sites. Make sure it is turned on for enhanced privacy.

6. Next, scroll down to find the “Website Data” option. Tap on it to view the data stored by websites on your device.

7. To automatically delete cookies, you can tap on “Remove All Website Data”. This will clear all cookies and website data stored on your iPhone.

8. If you prefer more control over which websites can save cookies, you can scroll down and select “Advanced” under the “Website Data” section.

9. In the Advanced settings, you will see a list of websites that have stored data on your device. You can swipe left on any website and tap on “Delete” to remove its data, including cookies.

10. Additionally, you can enable the “Do Not Track” option, which requests websites to not track your browsing activity. However, it is important to note that not all websites honor this request.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your iPhone automatically deletes cookies and website data on a regular basis, providing you with enhanced privacy while browsing the web.
