Safari Now Blocks All Third-Party Cookies


There's increasing calls for privacy online, and Apple has reacted by making Safari the first mainstream browser to block all third-party cookies by default.


As Engadget reports , the latest version of the browser for iOS and iPadOS 13.4, and Safari 13.1 for macOS, has the new functionality in place.


Wilander explains, "This is a significant improvement for privacy since it removes any sense of exceptions or "a little bit of cross-site tracking is allowed.""


WebKit has been blocking most cookies in Safari since 2017, so this is just the final step in providing a more private browsing experience.


In other words, if you're using the latest Safari browser on any of Apple's device, you can be confident anyone attempting to track you is going to have a hard time doing so.


Wilander also believes this change to block all cookies by default will be copied by other browsers .
