Do you ever wonder what cookies a website might try to plant on your system? There are many ways to check this but it couldn’t get any easier or safer than using the online app at Cookie-Checker.com.
You don’t have to actually go to a site to check its cookies, you don’t have to install anything, you don’t have to register anywhere, you don't have to reveal anything personal. Here is how it works:
- Go to Cookie-Checker.com (Shown in the figure below)
- Enter the URL of the site you want to check
- Cookie-Checker goes to work and displays the results as shown in the example below.
Oh, and by the way, Cookie-Checker.com doesn’t use any cookies.
Added later: As pointed out in a comment, this app does not find Flash cookies. These other forms of cookie are discussed in this previous tip.
