More on IE 7 Cookies

We’ve talked about Internet Explorer 7 cookies before, but I have more news about them for you today. So, if you use Internet Explorer 7 as your main Web browser, I urge you to listen up. Here we go!

Do you ever worry about your privacy when using Internet Explorer 7? It’s a common thing to think about, but in all actuality, what you should really be worrying about is third party cookies. Yep, those types of cookies can be placed on your computer by a simple double click in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Luckily, Internet Explorer 7 makes it very easy to block them! To do so, go to Tools, Options, Privacy and then click on Advanced.

Once you’re there, check the box that says “Override automatic cookie handling” and then select Block under the “Third Party Cookies” section.

That’s all there is to it! From now on, your computer will be safe from third party cookies whenever you use Internet Explorer 7. It doesn’t get any better than that, now does it?!
