How to Enable Cookies in Safari on your Mac in macOS Catalina

Safari is a powerful browser that can get even better with extensions. And if you want to further enhance your browsing experience, you can also enable cookies on Safari on your Mac. Cookies are bits of data that track your online behavior. Although this may sound creepy, it is useful for many reasons. For instance, to make the browser remember what you’ve added to your cart on a shopping website or to store your preferences when it comes to filling up some forms. So let’s set them up.

How to Allow Cookies in Safari in macOS Catalina

Step #1. Open Safari on your Mac → Click on Safari menu at the top left corner → Select Preferences. Click on Safari and Select Preferences on Mac

Step #2. In the box that appears, click on the Privacy tab. Click on Privacy in Safari Preferences on Mac

Step #3. Uncheck the box next to Block all cookies. Disable Block All Cookies to Allow Cookies in Safari in macOS Catalina

That’s it. Simply close the Preferences window and carry on browsing.

Once you enable cookies in Safari on Mac, it means that websites will be able to save some of your data such as login information or what you searched for. This makes things faster and easier the next time you visit such sites.

Summing Up

Moreover, some websites won’t work at all if their cookies are not enabled. So it’s a good idea to allow cookies on Safari on your Mac. However, if you ever want to block cookies again, just follow the same steps mentioned above and recheck the box that says “Block all Cookies”. Then, you’ll need to close and reopen Safari for the changes to take effect.
