Cookies are typically enabled by default, which means that you won’t be required to enable them in the majority of instances.

3. Proceed to the section that deals with privacy and safety. There are two options available in regard to cookies:

  • Blocking all cookies seems like a no-brainer at this point. If you have the slider all the way to the right, it will prevent Safari from accepting cookies from any website. Cookies can be used on your iPad once you move the slider to the off position (white).

They do not, in most cases, provide the helpful functionality that certain cookies provide. Cookies that track your activity across websites are used primarily to help advertisers better profile and target you. Keep this setting at off/white so that you may access and use all of the cookies you come across on the internet. However, if you do not wish to be profiled by advertisers, you have the option to switch this setting to the on/green position while still reaping the benefits of other types of cookies.
