How to remove (uninstall) Cookies On-Off

Recently, people are very concerned about problems with cyber security, spy scandals, leaks of personal photos and other such things. All this positively affects the sales of anti-virus software and various programs related to security, anonymity on the Web and additional functions. The most interesting thing in all this hype is that most users decided not to raise their level of knowledge about the problem, but to download themselves some program that will solve all the problems for them. On this wave of popularity, scammers earn well as well, through positioning their adware as programs that help users to remain anonymous on the Web, get access to prohibited sites, etc. The Cookies On-Off program is one of them. In the description of the program developers say that this program allows you to enable or disable the exchange of cookies between your browser and the site you are visiting, which means - to keep your anonymity. In fact, this program only shows ads and itself collects personal data of users, such as query lists and site visits statistics. If you are well versed in such programs, we advise you to immediately go to the instructions for removal. If you are interested to learn more about Cookies On-Off - we'll talk about this in the next paragraph.

Cookies On-Off

So, Cookies On-Off promises that in one click can cancel the exchange of cookies between the site open in the browser and the browser itself. In this regard, there are two problems:

  • The first problem is that the cookie outage button is in any popular browser, including Chrome, Firefox, Opera, IE and Safari. Selecting the option "disable cookie" in the settings, you will get the same result that the creators of Cookies On-Off assume, only without installing an incomprehensible application. Thus, Cookies On-Off simply is not needed, because it does not add functions to your browser, but only duplicates an existing function.
  • The second problem is even more interesting. The fact is that you cannot just turn off the cookie and continue to use the website. Any site that requires an account registration or that stores any data about the state of the user's session, its preferences or default settings uses cookies, and disabling their saving you will not be able to view this site. It's about sites like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr and other social networks that are fondly loved by their users, as well as about online stores, YouTube and many more other sites.

Now you understand that Cookies On-Off is not a useful program, and its creators initially positioned it as a program for deceiving users and speculating on the popular topic of Internet security.
