How to Clear Cookies on iPhone

What Cookies are:

They are pieces of data used by websites to customized webpages for you.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Deleting Cookies:

You can gain some speed by removing them and, at the same time, protect your privacy, because the information about your past browsing sessions are eliminated. But, since cookies save your login formation, it may be slower when you are logging in to websites or access cached data.

Important Things that You Need to Know:

(1) Besides Safari, if you have used other browsers, they will maintain their own cookies.

(2) Do a backup first because the deletion is permanently and even iOS Data Recovery can not retrieve the deleted files.

Well, now we will introduce this software, iPhone Data Eraser. You can use it to clear cookies on your iPhone when selling your handset, suspecting you have a malicious cookie or feeling the device is running slow.

Download the program first and follow the guide.
