Google Chrome bug annoys users

Like the vast majority of browsers, Google Chrome offers the ability to delete cookies and other data from the websites we visit. To do this, just go to settings to delete this type of data. But there is a catch: Data on Google sites (like YouTube) is not erased, and that annoys users.

This is because the data from Google.com and YouTube.com remains in Chrome, despite the fact that users request their complete deletion. Google guarantees that this is a bug in Chrome, and not a feature configured on purpose:

“We are aware of a bug in Chrome that affects the way cookies are deleted on some Google sites. We are investigating this issue and plan to implement a solution in the coming days.”

“Bug” in Google Chrome prevents the deletion of cookies from Google sites

A priori, YouTube.com has already implemented a correction. It seems to work as expected in the latest Chrome update (86.0.4240.111). However, Google.com still retains data. To avoid this, the user can add Google.com to the list of “Sites that cannot use cookies”.

The fastest way to do this is to type chrome: // settings / cookies in Chrome’s URL bar and validate. You will find your browser settings for cookies. Scroll to the bottom of the page and add Google.com.

Otherwise, you can wait for the fix for Chrome, which will be coming soon … although I don’t think it’s a bug, but a feature.
