    Project mention: ELI5: What is the impact of browsers no longer accepting 3rd party cookies and Apple’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention? | reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive | 2021-04-16

    Cookies are stored on your computer, so no website can force you to accept them - most browsers have an option to disable cookies. But bear in mind that while l blocking cookies entirely may break some functionality ... for example, you generally won't be able to log in with cookies disabled, because the cookie is used to store your session token. You might want to download an addon such as privacy badger instead.
