Flash Cookies, A Privacy Issue & How to Delete Them

Over the past year or so there has been a growing trend among internet users to regularly clear the cookies that websites put on their systems. This has meant that the web site owners can be frustrated either in their legitimate desire to save state in the users browser or the more dodgy track people round the internet.

Site owners have responded with the increased use of flash cookies, which do similar things, but are not so easy to delete or manage.

This video shows how to manage and delete flash cookies in your browser of choice.

Thanks to http://www.brdatasystems.com.au, a local server rack manufacturer for letting me use their site, which I know doesn’t add cookies, to show how to manage and delete them.
