First, go to the home screen on your iPhone and search for the Settings app. Then, when you find it, give it a click. It can often be found in the utilities folder.
Next, scroll down a bit until you find "Safari." Then, click "Safari."
Now, scroll down a bit until you see "block all cookies." You will notice a toggle to the right of "block all cookies." If the toggle is not green, it is off, and cookies can be downloaded onto your device. If it is on, and green, cookies are disabled.
To disable all cookies try the steps below:
- Click the toggle to the right of "block all cookies."
- When you click it a pop-up will alert you of the risks and need-to-know information.
- Click "block all."

Have you noticed you cannot visit your favorite websites on your iPhone or that those sites aren't fully functional after blocking all cookies? If so, consider enabling cookies again. To do this, click the toggle (it will be green indicating cookies are blocked).
Voila! The toggle will no longer be green, and you are good to visit your favorite sites again!
Sometimes, when you are busy or out and about and your iPhone starts ringing, you don't want to pick it up, but you know it might be so-and-so with that important call you've been waiting on.
