  9. 9
    We want the option near the top that says, "Cookies"
    .
    It has the icon of a cookie next to it. Underneath, it says, "Allowed". That means that this option is currently selected. Press down on this section. We want the first option at the top. It says, "Cookies: Allow sites to save and read cookie data (recommended)." This is recommended because many sites will not work properly if we don't allow them to save and read cookie data. We won't be able to access things; they may not work properly. It can make it difficult for us to use websites if we don't allow them to save and read cookies. Currently, the option is activated; the icon beside it is blue.

    If we want to deactivate this option and block all cookies, then press down on the icon
    .
    It will give us more anonymity, and there will be less data collected about us. The icon will turn gray, and underneath cookies will say "Block all sites." This means that no site will be able to share or read cookies.

    .
