Cookies On-off Removal Guide

Do you know what Cookies On-off is?

We have just talked about Cookies Control, a browser extension, and now we will have to talk about it again because Cookies On-off is just another name for it. So whatever we could have applied to the extension we talked about previously, the same can be applied to this one, too. Because, essentially, it is the same program. Why does it have two names? People often search for the same application using different keywords, so to help those who use the “Cookies On-off” keyword; we are uploading this description as well. After all, the objective is still to remove the extension.

One of the best things about this browser extension is that it is intended for Google Chrome, and so it does not work on other browsers. It also means that it should be easier to remove the plug-in, and that can be easily accomplished manually. For that, you can simply scroll down to the bottom of this description, and be done with it. But do not forget that one potentially unwanted program usually points out another application of the same kind. Hence, before you breathe a sigh of relief, please consider scanning your system with a licensed antispyware tool.

We think that users tend to download and install Cookies On-off on their systems willingly, but unwittingly. What we mean is that they are not aware of the extension at first because they might be too focused on some other program. Why? Because Cookies On-off might come bundled with freeware that you download on a regular basis. This freeware could be hosted on a file-sharing website, and you may prefer downloading from such a page rather than from an official website. What’s more, there are many freeware apps out there that do not even have an official homepage, and so users get automatically redirected to third-party sources.Cookies On-off Removal GuideCookies On-off screenshot

As you can probably tell, it is possible to avoid potentially unwanted applications and other undesirable features if you are more careful about the sources of your software. The main rule is to download programs from their official sources. It should be enough to prevent unwanted applications from entering your system.

Since this program has an official website, it is possible to know a little bit more about. We can access the site via The homepage also has the download button. If you click it, the extension will be added to the Chrome browser. So it is hard to call this program a malicious infection because everything is done out in the open.

The information presented on the main website says that with this extension it is possible to “easily disable/enable cookies on the current site to protect your privacy online.” It also says that Cookies On-off “works on “per host” basis and will disable cookies for one domain only (the site opened in the currently selected tab). When you disable cookies, it will delete cookies set by this site and will reload the current page.”

If you have learned about cookies before, you probably know that they could be associated with certain privacy issues. And some users would indeed want to protect themselves from intrusive tracking. However, it is possible to do that by turning off cookies in your browser. There is no need to rely on a third-party application for that because (surprise!) Cookies On-off also uses cookies to track you.

The thing is that you may end up using a program that exhibits the features you actually want to avoid.
