A cookie checker is a tool used to scan websites and identify cookies in use.
Cookie checkers are useful when they are used regularly. For individual users, this could be relatively time-consuming if their cookie checker is not automated. Furthermore, most third-party cookies, which web users are interested in, can be found on web browsers. Third-party cookies can be easily deleted in each web browser in settings. It is up to each individual which cookies they consent to and to which they don’t. However, all companies under the GDPR are legally responsible for cookies on their website. Therefore, automated cookie scanners and checkers are a vital element of data protection.
A cookie compliance checker is an additional tool that can help your website become legally compliant. Before the visitor grants their consent, cookies should not be set to track the visitor. Hence, third-party cookies must be blocked until consent is given. A cookie compliance checker can help you use the right cookies at the right time.
As mentioned before, a cookie checker is an essential tool for any website owner for multiple reasons. Scanning your website for third-party cookies and doing so regularly is the only way to ensure you provide the correct information to your users. It also allows you to manage cookies and make sure your website is, so to speak, ‘clean’.
Being able to scan your website regularly, categorize cookies and delete unwanted ones can be a time-consuming job. But it does not have to be. Our solution will allow you to scan your website automatically, categorize any cookies found in the scan and block them from tracking website visitors until consent has been given.
