How to block cookies in Internet Explorer 7 and 8

The first step: Call up cookie settings

In Internet Explorer, cookie settings are made in the “Internet Options”

How to proceed:

  1. In the upper menu bar, click on “Extras”.
  2. In the following menu, select “Internet Options”.

The following instructions assume that you have selected the “General” tab.

Deleting cookies
First, you should know how to remove cookies that have already been stored.

How to proceed:

  1. Under the “Browsing History” section, click on “Delete”.
  2. Select the “cookies” option to activate it.
  3. Now click on “Delete”.

Whether you also want to delete other the temporary data

  • “Keep preferred site data”.
  • “Temporary Internet files”.
  • and “History”.

is up to you. It is certainly worth deleting form data and passwords if other people use your computer with the same user account (for instance, family members). Otherwise, such people could, for instance, use your credit card details to pay or register for password-protected websites using your identity. If you want to be extra safe, select these points too. Keep in mind, however, that you will need to re-enter all passwords, user names and address information again after they have been deleted.

Delete all cookies automatically when exiting Internet Explorer
You can automate the process so that you no longer need to worry about regularly having to delete cookies and other temporary files.

How to proceed:

  1. Select “Delete browsing history on exit” in the section “Browsing History”.

Now, all cookies and temporary files will automatically be deleted when you exit the browser and you will not have to worry about them any more.

How to block or allow cookies

In Internet Explorer, cookie settings are made under the tab labelled “Privacy”.

How to block cookies from third-party providers
Third-party providers are often advertising service providers who use cookies to track your actions on the Internet. A simple way to prevent this is to block these cookies.

How to proceed:

  1. Under “Internet Options” click on the Privacy tab.
  2. Click on “Advanced” in the settings on the upper part of the Privacy tab.
  3. Here, select “Cancel automatic cookie handling”.
  4. Now select “Third-party cookies” and “Block”.
  5. Click on “OK” to return to the Privacy tab.

In exceptional cases, you may not be able to fully use websites from certain third-party providers without cookies. In such cases, you can define exceptions. For instructions on how to do this, see the section “How to allow/block cookies on selected websites”.

How to block all cookies except session cookies
You can also choose to configure Internet Explorer to store no cookies at all except for session cookies.

How to proceed:

  1. Under “Internet Options” click on the Privacy tab.
  2. Click on “Advanced” in the settings on the upper part of the Privacy tab.
  3. Here, select “Cancel automatic cookie handling”.
  4. Now select “Block” both for “First-party cookies” and “Third-party cookies”.

Now all cookies will generally be refused. Since logging onto password-protected websites and other important functions would no longer be usable,

  1. activate the entry “Always allow session cookies” to enable them again.
  2. Click on “OK” to return to the Privacy tab.

Now only short-term cookies will be permitted and all long-term stored cookies rejected. You can define exceptions for websites that no longer function fully due to these settings. For instructions on how to do this, see the section “How to allow/block cookies on selected websites”.

How to allow/block cookies from selected websites
It is better to only allow cookies on selected websites. However, this does require some effort. But this way, you can control exactly which cookies are used.

First, block all cookies as explained in “How to block all cookies except session cookies” and then allow the selected websites again.

How to proceed:

  1. Click on the “Sites” button. Here you can now specify the websites you explicitly want to block or allow.
  2. To do this, enter the address of the website in question.
  3. Click on “Allow”.
  4. Click on “OK”.

If you wish to remove entries from the list at a later date, you can do this via the corresponding buttons in the lower part of the window. The websites on the list are generally allowed to add cookies. You should therefore be careful about which websites you save.

Completing cookie settingsAll changes to the cookies settings must be confirmed before exiting. Close the settings window by clicking on “OK” at the bottom.
