How to Clear & Delete Cookies on Chrome: Browser, Android, iOS & Single Sites

If you’re looking to clear or delete cookies on Chrome, whether that be on your Windows or Mac laptop, your Android or iPhone mobile, or iPad, we got you covered. 

Just follow the steps we’ve outlined here for the device or browser you’re looking to clear. 

Take note that you also have the option of just clearing the cookies for a particular site.

    • In the left sidebar, expand the “Cookies” section under the “Storage” category.
    • Select the site whose cookies you want to clear.
    • Right-click on the cookies list and select “Clear.”
