Should I Disable Cookies at All Times?
Although it is important you would know how to disable your cookies properly and efficiently, you should not be disabling your cookies at all times. The reason is that some vital services like your bank or your credit company cannot operate without having cookies. The right way to do this is to turn them off when you know you aren’t visiting any particularly important website, and turn them on when you need to.
