How to manage cookies in your browser
Some people prefer not to enable cookies. Due to this, most browsers allow you to manage cookies to suit your own preferences.
Some browsers limit or delete cookies, so you may want to review your cookies settings and your ads settings. In some browsers you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more precise control over your privacy. This means that you can disable cookies from all websites except those you trust.
The Tools menu in the Google Chrome browser contains an option to “Clear browsing data”. You can use this option to delete cookies as well as other site and plug-in data, including data stored on your device by Adobe Flash Player (also known as “Flash cookies”). See the instructions on how to manage cookies in Chrome.
Another feature of Chrome is the incognito mode. You can browse in incognito mode when you don’t want your website visits or downloads to be recorded in your browsing and download histories. Cookies created in incognito mode are deleted after you close all incognito windows.

What happens when I delete this information?
When you clear the cache and cookies:
Some website setting options are eliminated. For example, if you were already logged in, you’ll need to log in again.
Some websites may seem slower because certain content such as images must reload.
How the cache and cookies work
Cookies are files created by the websites you visit. They improve the online experience by storing browsing data.
Cache memory remembers parts of websites, such as the images, so that they open faster when you go back to visit them.
