How Can I Block 3rd Party Cookies

Crucially, essential cookies need to be left enabled for the website or ecommerce site you are visiting to function correctly, though 3rd party widgets could be disabled if you do not wish them to potentially collect information about you or your visit. The easiest way is to block 3rd party cookies is by using your web browser settings to do this. Each web browser's configuration, settings and options are different so please refer to your browser manual or search an internet search engine on how to make the setting change to disable 3rd party cookies on the Internet Browser you use.

 

Blocking all Tracking and Analytics, 3rd or 1st Party Widgets

The new Mozilla v58 browser can block tracking analytics, not using a "Do Not Track" which websites ignore, but by blocking the website tracking/analytics code so it is not executed.

Settings / Options / Privacy & Security / Tracking Protection.

This will block one of the widest used free 3rd & 1st party analytics provider, Google Analytics.
