Tech Friday: A delay for Google phasing out invasive cookies

Posted By on July 29, 2022


A couple of years ago, Google announced that its Chrome Browser would start phasing out their support for “third party tracking cookies.” Users concerned about privacy and data tracking from their web browsing have tried over the years to use add-ons and extensions to block or prevent Chrome from using them. Some of us switch browsers assuming some are better than others when it comes to privacy, but usability with blockers on some sites is often compromised … so having a company like Google phasing out support for invasive cookies was a promising announcement.

Unfortunately this week Google Privacy Sandbox posted a delay stating we now intend to begin phasing out third-party cookies in Chrome in the second half of 2024 to allow more time for testing.
