How to Stop the “Cookie Notices” in Chrome & Firefox

Have you grown a bit tired of having to click “OK” or “I Accept” on all those website banners that explain they use cookies? Us too. Fortunately, there’s a way to set your browser to stop showing those cookie notices.

If you’re using Chrome, click here for the steps. If you’re using Firefox, click here.


Stop Cookie Notices in Chrome

  1. Head over to the “I Don’t Care About Cookies” page on the Chrome Web Store. Click the Add to Chrome button to install the extension.
  2. Once the installation has completed, click the new “cookie” icon in your Chrome Toolbar and select Settings
  3. Click the ‘pull-down’ menu to expand all of the options.
  4. Choose your cookie preference. If you’re unsure, the default of I allow only cookies needed for the website to work properly is perfectly fine.
  5. At this point you’re done – there’s nothing else to configure. Since this is the type of Chrome extension that you don’t need to interact with, you may want to ‘hide’ it from your Toolbar so that it’s out of the way. To do so, right-click the “cookie” icon and select Hide in Chrome Menu
  6. This will place it at the top of the Chrome Menu with any other extension icons you may have opted to hide.
  7. From now on those cookie messages that websites display will be hidden from view and you won’t have to waste time clicking them.

Stop Cookie Notices in Firefox

  1. Head over to the “I Don’t Care About Cookies” page for Firefox Addons and click the + Add to Firefox button.
  2. When prompted, click Add
  3. After the installation has completed, click the Okay, Got It button.
  4. To configure the addon, click the new “cookie” icon and select Settings
  5. Click the drop-down menu and select your preferred option. If you’re unsure, the default of I allow only cookies needed for the website to work properly is perfectly fine.
  6. Since this is an addon that you don’t need to interact with, you may want to hide it from the Firefox Toolbar. To do so, right-click click the ‘cookie’ icon and select Remove From Toolbar. This won’t actually remove the addon, just hide it from the Toolbar.
  7. Should you ever need to access it, just click the Firefox Open menu button from the upper-right corner and select Add-ons from the menu.
  8. From now on those cookie messages that websites display will be hidden from view and you won’t have to waste time clicking them.
