Opt-Out cookie segregation/bundling

  • With the introduction of GDPR, the amount of sites that allow for opt-out of tracking and what not has funnily enough exploded, but the cookie management interface has no option beyond sorting alphabetically (cookie name, not site name).

    Allow for better sorting, or better yet let the laboriously acquired opt-out cookies reside in their own little niche/folder so that one can still wipe cookies en masse without having to re-acquire them.

  • I found opt-out cookies frustrating, since they got lost easily. I find it much easier to limit cookie permissions to a small list of sites. All you have to do is default to blocking cookies and allow only those that you need.

  • True, on the desktop we have a ton of options to block stuff, not so much on mobile platforms.
    But just for sake of argument, how does your modus operandi distinguish tracking cookies set by 1st party rather than 3rd party?
    That "solution" is growing as a way to circumvent the only realistic block option browsers possess - 3rd party block.

    GDPR will be followed up by the ePrivacy regulation, specifically addressing cookies and the like.
    Why should opera not be on the forefront and offer the granularity of consent and control that it is likely to incorporate as a browser setting requirement?

    My solution works. Block by default and allow only a small number of sites to set cookies. As for blocking tracking, I have subscriptions in uBlock Origin to do that.
