Clearing your Google Chrome browser cookies automatically when you close or exit Chrome is a nice way to keep cookies and other tracking tokens under control. Although you still have to clear your Chrome cache and history manually, for me, cookies are what should be nuked regularly. So, since I forget to do this regularly, follow along as I demonstrate how to configure Google Chrome to wipe cookies on your PC and macOS each time you close the browser automatically.
- Click the More icon > Settings
- Scroll down and click Advanced > Content Settings
- Click Cookies
- Click Toggle under Keep local data only until you quit your browser
Now, whenever you close your Google Chrome browser on your Windows or macOS, all cookies will be deleted automatically.
