Edited by Thor, Jen M, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to adjust the Cookie settings Internet Explorer 11.
- 4Here we have the Cookie settings. Cookies are very important because some websites won't allow you to access them if you are blocking all cookies, and some will not function properly, keep this in mind if you choose Block All Cookies. Cookies are very useful because they remember your details. For example, if you use internet banking and you visit your bank, the cookies will remember that you have visited the site and allow you easy access. If you have cookies blocked then you will have to enter security details every time. Cookies also remember your preferences in order to provide you with a more bespoke service. If you have particular favourites, or you have the weather for your location, cookies will remember this and show things that are relative to you.
- 5The other alternative is to Accept All Cookies, which allows you to be tracked by everything. Some of these may be malicious, tracking your information or recording things. It's good to have a balance. You need some cookies, but it is also good to retain some of your privacy. If you allow all cookies you are basically allowing everyone to see everything you look at and everything you do.
- 9This has been a video showing you how to alter the Cookies setting in Internet Explorer 11 using Windows 7. It is good to understand the importance of cookies and what they actually represent, so that you're aware of what you're doing on the internet and how much of your information is being monitored and recorded. If you have any comments or questions please leave them in the section below. You've been watching VisiHow.
