It’s important to verify your cookie blocking and ensure that your cookie banner effectively blocks cookies according to user consent.

To verify, follow the steps below:

  1. Open your your browser(Google Chrome) ,and right-click, then click on Inspect to open the developer console.

  2. Navigate to the Applications tab.
  3. Expand the Cookies dropdown under Storage.
  4. Click on each domain to see the cookies installed by them.
  5. Here, you can view all cookies on your website, along with their name, value, domain, path, expiration date, size, and additional details.
  6. Click Clear Site data, and check the box including third-party cookies button to clear all the cookies from your current session.
  7. Hard refresh the page by pressing Ctrl + Shift + R.
  8. If the cookie blocking is correctly implemented, only the Strictly Necessary cookies will be present until you accept the CookieYes banner. 
  9. The remaining cookies will load automatically once their category in the banner is accepted.
