What is Cookie And From When It Becomes Mandatory Consent to Provide?

According to Whatarecookies,

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

Are Cookies Safe?

Normally, cookies cannot transfer any malicious virus to your computer. But it tracks your browsing activity. Here is a short video about cookies by Norton, hope you will get an idea about what a cookie can do!

How to Stop Cookie Popups Permanently?

For many purposes, I have to visit so many sites. Every time when I entered into the site this cookie consent distract me. Most of the sites are using a large scale of a banner to notify me. Some of them don’t provide us to decline the consent. A few of them are so mean they can’t allow me to read the content without accepting the consent. I googled so many times to find possible automated solutions for it but every time Google disappoints me. Then I came up with a simple trick, I just inspect the elements from the browser and delete the CSS Code of the Cookie popups to get rid of the cookie consent and read the article and left the site. But the problem is that while I have to reload the page the consent popup becomes alive again. Ahh. I need a permanent solution. Because I need to pay visits to those sites on a regular basis because of their quality content. Maybe you also faced the same problem.

Stopping Cookie Popups Step by Step Guideline

First of all, I like to clarify to you that I tried this method in Google Chrome Browser. It works properly. But don’t worry if you are a Firefox User then I’ll share an alternative solution for you.

#Step 1

First of all activate Amino: Live CSS Editor in your Chrome Browser. If the link doesn’t work for you then, please go to your Chrome Extension Store. Search for Amino and activate it.

Navigate to => Chrome Menu => More Tools => Extensions => Top Left Extension Main Menu => Bottom Left => Open Chrome Web Store => Search Amino

Amino will ask for your email address after the activation. Provide any of your email address. Or you can use any temp mail.

#Step 2

Now visit your desired site. Wait for a while to get the cookie notice. When the Cookie Consent popups inspect the elements of your browser. If you are a windows user just press Control+Shift+C or you are using Mac then press Command+Shift+C. Then hover your mouse cursor to the cookie consent popup to get the CSS Codes. Or you can right click of your mouse pointing the cookie consent and select inspect element from the dropdown option.

#Step 3

Now go to the style CSS bar. Find the Cookie Consent CSS. Then add simple CSS,

display: none! .

You will see the Cookie Popup will hide automatically. Sometimes this code may not work because of the hard-coded CSS of the site. Then you have to add this CSS Code,

display: none! important; .

Now copy the whole style CSS file with the class.

If you select the Domain then you can visit the whole site without any cookie consent until the removal of Amino Extension from your browser.  Or the code from the Amino Extension. One more thing need to mention, the Control + V or Command + V shortcode will not work in the Amino Live CSS Editor Extension. All the time you have to paste the code by using mouse right click option.

As I visit jeffbullas.com so many times but the site is full of popup lead generating click funnels.
