Cookies are small pieces of data that websites store in your Mac’s Internet browser. They help the website remember informaion about you, such as what language you prefer and what items you have in your shopping cart. Cookies can be beneficial, but they can also be blocked by your browser settings. If you’re unable to access certain websites or features due to blocked cookies, here’s how to unblock them on a Mac.

The first step is to open Safari, the default web browser for Macs. Once it is open, click Safari at the top left of your screen and select Preferences from the drop-down menu. This will open up Safari’s settings window. Click on the Privacy tab and find the section labeled “Cookies and website data”. Under this section is a drop-down menu with various options; select “Allow from websites I visit” to unblock all cookies from websites that you have already visited.

If you want to unblock cookies from all websites, then select “Always allow” from the drop-down menu instead. If you would like to unblock cookies only for specific websites, then click on “Details…” below the drop-down menu and enter the website address into the window that appears. You can add multiple websites by separating each one with a comma or semicolon. Once finished, click “Done” and those prticular sites will now be able to store cookies on your Mac’s web browser.

Finally, if you want to block all cookie storage completely, then select “Block all cookie storage” from the drop-down menu under “Cookies and website data” in Safari’s Preferences window. This will prevent any website from storing any information about your browsing activities on your Mac’s web browser (although it may limit some functionality).

Unblocking cookies on a Mac is easy once you know where to look! With just a few clicks in Safari’s Preferences window, you can choose which types of cookie storage are allowed or blocked – giving you control over how much information is stored by different websites while still allowing access to necessary features and content.
