When you are browsing the Internet from your iPhone, you have more choices than just the default Safari browser that comes with the device. You can also download other popular mobile browsers, such as Google Chrome.
But just like the issues you experience browsing on a desktop or laptop computer, you may encounter a situation where you aren’t able to use a website properly due to a cookie issue. Our guide below will show you how to clear cookies in the iPhone Chrome browser to hopefully resolve the issues you are experiencing.
Chrome on iPhone – How to Clear Cookies
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 12.1.4, using the most current version of the Chrome app.
Step 1: Open the Chrome browser.
Step 2: Select the icon with three dots at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Choose the Settings option.
Step 4: Touch the Privacy button.
Step 5: Tap the Clear Browsing History button.
Step 6: Adjust the selections so that only Cookies, Site Data is selected (unless you also want to clear other types of data) then touch the Clear Browsing History button.
