If you hate Cookies, Histories etc. and want to get rid of them quickly and at your discretion then this is the app to own! Buy from the Developer not the App Store! Much more flexible and updates are quicker. Support is big time!

I DO NOT recommend this product for the following reasons: * Not long after buying it in March 2019 a paid for upgrade was released which is only free for those who bought after 1 June 2019. * No documentation explaining the interface. For example, it is not clear why some websites are greyed out or what it means when the favourite checkbox is ticked/unticked. * Automatic removal is on but tracking cookies are not removed * Essential cookies on popular sites are removed, leading to problems. You can white list these but it involves trial and error. * Many browsers are tightening up on cookies with new functions to limit them. Having Cookie as an extra layer only complicates cookie management and problem solving. * I can find no way of contacting the owners (SweetP Productions) on their site.

There is a help menu in the app, which has links for Help documentation (https://sweetpproductions.com/products/cookieapp/help/index.htm). Also included in the help menu, are links for email, support forums and Twitter. You can also find a contact page on my website via the site menu (https://sweetpproductions.com/contact.htm) Gray cookies are cookies which are favorites that are not currently in your browser. (this is explained in the help documentation. There is a discount for purchases of Cookie 5 (or 4), just contact me. Whitelisting tracking cookies is explained in the troubleshooting section in the Help Docs (https://sweetpproductions.com/products/cookieapp/help/index.htm#issues)

As long as you bought Cookie 5 from the App Store, you can still download it from there. Try this: (1) Open up the App Store app and log in. You can log in either under the Store menu item or by clicking on ‘Sign in’ at the bottom left of the window. (2) You can now see your account at the bottom left. Click on it. (3) You now see the ‘Account’ window with a reverse chronological list of what you ‘Purchased‘. Scroll down to see if you can find ‘Cookie’. If you can, you’ll see an icon under it that is a little Cloud with an arrow pointing down. Click the cloud to download.... BUT->. (4) If you don’t see ‘Cookie’ in your ‘Purchased‘ list, then you probably HID it at some point. Press on and click ‘View Information’ at the top of your Account window. This provides a sub-window allowing access to your account information. (5) Locate the section labeled “Hidden Items”. To its right, click on ‘Manage’. The sub-window will change to your ‘Hidden Purchases’ list. Again, it’s in reverse chronological order. (6) Scroll down your list to locate ‘Cookie’. If you find it, click to its right on ‘UNHIDE’. This will move Cookie to your ‘Purchased’ list again. [Note: If you do NOT see Cookie in your Hidden list at this point, you’re SOL. Either you didn’t buy Cookie via the App Store, or it’s time to call Apple.] (7) Click on the background, behind the ‘Hidden Purchases’ sub-window to get back to your ‘Purchased’ list. You will now see Cookie listed. Click on its Cloud and arrow icon to download and install. Done.

I'm impressed. This has worked well for years through system upgrades and is promptly updated when needed. It is quality software and I'm glad I bought this when I did. I feel like I control cookies and they don't control me. I love every time FB doesn't recognize me and wants me to open a new account - this means, they can't track me. Yay!

I have used Cookie for a very long time. It is one of a very few indispensable pieces of software I own. I wouldn't want to be without it. I find it to be set it and forget it. Russell, the developer is one of the most responsive developers out there. If only other developers would take a lesson from him. In reading Big Johnson's comments it seems to me that by having 305 cookies he is defeating the very purpose for which this piece of software exists...to reduce the number of cookies to only those you need on a regular basis and to avoid tracking cookies. Cookie does this better than any piece of Mac software I know of. No piece of software, or anything else we use for that matter, has unlimited capacity. Even if you were able to design such a thing the cost would be prohibitive and the resources it would use would be astronomical.

You absolutely must be using Cookie! The trial is enough for you to be persuaded, you need it. It's a must have. I have seen Safari fail to clear cache. Get cookie! It's better than chocolate chip malanos! ?

Tried using 5.9.8. After setting up and trying to remove a few cookies, it crashed. After having crashed, it can not start again. It never even gets to run. I still can run version 4.8 without issues. I tried totally removing 5.6.8 using AppDelete. After that it ran once, crashed and back to square one. Don't buy without trying. (MacOS 10.13.6., MacPro 5,1)

this was a bug in Cookie's Firefox IndexedDB parsing. I have it fixed in v5.9.9 which is available on my store now. The App Store version will take some time for review.
