A cookie is responsible for storing users’ settings, customization, and identity on a website. Without this small block of data, a lot of websites are not going to function as they are intended. Therefore, cookies are normally generated and stored in a browser every time you visited a web page.
However, there are some cases where you might encounter a problem that requires you to clear cookies from the browser. This can be a nightmare as clearing the data will also remove tons of website data including credentials, meaning you have to re-login to each website whose cookies are deleted.
Thankfully, this problem has become a problem in the past. Modern browsers like Google Chrome lets you remove the cookies from just one specific website. Therefore, every other website won’t get affected by the action.
