Most websites now present a pop-up or banner about cookie preferences and allowances when you land on them. These can sometimes prevent you accessing the site until you complete the permissions section. Many use strategic methods of button highlighting and placement to lure you into accepting all cookies before you realize what you’re agreeing to. Selectively turning off all but the necessary functional cookies reduces processing clutter on your computer or devices and limits the amount of data you allow websites to take from you.
