How to Clear Cookies From Safari On Mac Computer for Beginners

By Techwalla Contributor

Your pretty little Mac is acting up and someone tells you to remove cookies. What the heck is a cookie? They sound delicious, but I guess they have to go. I'm a complete techno-beginner, but I figured out how. Here's how.

Things You'll Need

  • a Mac

Step 1

Open Safari and select Preferences. Once you're in Preferences, look at the very top of the page, not into the body. Up on top you'll see icons. One of these icons will be Security.

Step 2

Click on Security and a page will open that will show you cookies. Point your curser to cookies and open this.

Step 3

Another page will open showing you a window that allows you to view every cookie. Down at the bottom, you have the option of clicking on Remove. Click on that.

Step 4

A box will open up asking you if you want to remove all the cookies. If you do, just say ok, and all the cookies will magically disappear. That doesn't mean, however, that your computer will stop acting up. But it will get rid of your cookies.
